Our Swimming Pool
|Home||A-Z Contents List||Back to Out & About|
We are very proud to have our own heated swimming
pool. Built in the 1970s we have been able to keep it
functioning while many schools have had to close similar facilities.
It is located in an enclosed 'suntrap' location near to the playground.
The pool is approximately 80 cm deep and is ideal for learning to swim and
developing strokes. There are purpose built changing rooms, a fully
fitted pump and heating shed and an elevated viewing area which benefits
from 'astroturf' and,
during the summer months, has a gazebo to keep the children both shaded and cool.
Every child receives at least 25 swimming lessons every year during June and
In Term 6 every pupil swims every
day (for a six week period).
The picture is 'thumbnailed' and may be enlarged to allow a full impression.
Please note that we cannot allow pupils into the pool with earrings or plasters as these can cause expensive damage!
