Essential information

  • There are no nappy bins available, so please dispose of nappies elsewhere.
  • No food is permitted on the poolside or in the changing rooms, please save your child’s snack until after you have left the pool.
  • Identification – as the venue is a private boarding school, for security reasons customers must show ID, such as a driving licence, at the security gate to gain access to the site. Failure to do this means you will not be admitted.


    • Baby and Pre-School: a well-fitting neoprene swim nappy must be worn with a disposable swim nappy or an environmentally friendly Nappy Wrap & Liner underneath, if your child is not yet fully potty/toilet trained. We recommend one of our great value Baby Swimming Kits, which contain the swim lesson essentials at a fantastic price.
    • All Swim Academy children must wear swim hats in the pool. We provide a complimentary swim hat when you join us. You can find our range of goggles and other Swim Accessories in our online shop.
    • Our online shop stocks a fantastic kids swimwear collection plus super useful bags, towels, changing mats and much, much more!
