Glenwood has enjoyed 3 golden periods of Water Polo. In the period 1977–1982, the 1st team lost only two games out of 95 played during this 6 – year period. From 1985 – 86 40 games were played, of which only 3 were lost. The third period occurred during the year 1997 – 98 when only 2 of the 37 local games were lost. For these 2 years, the 1st Water Polo team were ranked 2nd in South Africa, behind St Stithians.

In each of these periods, the team was fronted by a player of exceptional talent, namely Derek La Marque (1976 – 79), Hayden Mottram(1980 – 82), Craig Roy
(1984 – 86) and Donn Stewart (1995 – 99).

More recently, Glenwood Water Polo has been ranking amongst the top schools in the country, with three consecutive years in the top 10 from 2015-2017. The 1st team of 2017 won the KZN Top 10 tournament and finished 2nd in the country, behind Rondebosch, after losing to them in the Sacs Waterpolo tournament Semi-Final.

The school has produced a number of Springboks in Donald Campbell, Derek La Marque, Guy Mottram, Craig Roy, more recently Donn Stewart and Darren de Bruyn just to name a few. In addition, countless provincial players such as Darren Stone, Grant Robertson, Bradley Smith, Scott Brown and Pierro Ioppo.
