Essential information

  • Access to the changing room is via the Sports Hall, which is clearly signposted on site.
  • 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.


  • A well-fitting neoprene swim nappy must be worn with a disposable swim nappy or an environmentally friendly NappyWrap & Liner underneath, if your child is not yet fully potty/toilet trained. We recommend one of our great value Starter Packs which contain the swim lesson essentials at a fantastic price.
  • Our online shop stocks a fantastic kids swimwear collection plus super useful bags, towels, changing mats and much, much more!
  • You can find lots of additional useful information about attending our swim classes on our FAQs page.

Changing rooms

There are changing rooms, with individual changing rooms, and showers. Baskets are provided to store your belongings while in the pool.
