Orion Swimming Club is based in South Birmingham. We offer swimming lessons from beginners upwards and competitive swimming in several swimming leagues. Our popular annual Club Championships take place each September. Most of our sessions are held at the Kings Edward's Boys School swimming pool, on the Bristol Road although we also have sessions at the King Edward's Girls School and Edgbaston High School for Girls.

Welcome to our website. Hopefully you will find all the information you need. If you want to try out swimming with Orion, and would like to know more about our free trial, please fill in the form on our contacts page and email it to us at

No parking on the school drive

The school has provided details about the dates on which there will be no parking on the main drive for Orion members. The Chief Master has specifically stated that under no circumstances should any person park their vehicle on the double yellow lines throughout the site, at the Ruddock Performing Arts Centre and most definitely not on the grass verges.

We hope you will take note and act accordingly to maintain the good relationship we have with the school.

There will be no parking on the main drive or parade ground on the following dates:

No restrictions at the moment but check back regularly.

When you are not able to park on the main drive, Orion members can park at:
1. Sports Hall
2. Parking bays leading up the Chief Master's drive (but not in front of the Chief Master's house or garage)
3. Playing field off Bristol Road (please remember although it may look like the gate is closed, it is not)
4. Birmingham University car park on Edgbaston Park Road (next to the Gun Barrels, Saturdays and Sundays and after 4pm Monday to Friday)
