All you need to know - Heatherwood School

Leger Way, Doncaster, DN2 6HQ

We can’t wait to welcome you to Puddle Ducks at Heatherwood School – in the meantime, here’s some information that we hope you will find useful. Have a splashtastic time!

Location: Heatherwood School

Parking: Free and available in the school car park.

Essential information:

  • Please park only in marked bays. As the classes are after school hours, there should be no problem with finding a space. 
  • A well-fitting neoprene swim nappy must be worn with a disposable swim nappy or one of our environmentally friendly NappyWraps & Liners underneath if your child is in Floaties, Splashers or Kickers and in other programmes if they are not potty/toilet trained. Why not buy one of our great value Starter Packs which contain everything you need for your swim lesson?
  • You can find lots more useful information about attending our swim classes on our FAQs page

Changing Rooms: There are two changing rooms, one for male and one for female changing. A separate area is made available for family changing so please speak to a member of the team about where to change on arrival. The changing areas do have limited space, so please be courteous to other parents and don’t leave your belongings on seats or beds when you are in the pool.

Please try not to arrive more than 15 mins before the start of your class to assist with changing rooms not becoming too overcrowded

Please try to vacate the changing area as quickly as possible after your class to make room for the next group of parents. This is particularly important if you attend the last class of the day as we need to vacate the premises 15 minutes after the classes have ended.

Exclusivity: Puddle Ducks have exclusive use during hire.

Access: Through the school’s main entrance. Staff will allow access. If no one is in the school office on arrival, please wait in the entrance and someone will be with you to let you in within a few minutes. Spectators are allowed poolside and enter the same way, straight on to poolside from the school corridor.


Technical Information:

  • Pool Temperature: 34°C Warm hydro temperature so there is no need for a baby warmer.
  • Poolside Assistant: There is a poolside assistant at this pool
  • Depth: 0.5 graduating to approx. 1.16m
  • Maximum Class Ratios: 8 Children/adult pairs : 1 Teacher (Floaties, Splashers, Kickers, Little Dippers and Dippers)

What Our Customers Think


My little boy has just had his 3rd lesson with Puddle Ducks in a new group and new town. He previously swam from 5 weeks old until 9 months with Puddle Ducks in Manchester. He's grown in confidence in the 3 weeks, going from crying and clinging on to my or my husband, to jumping in the pool and gliding underwater and not wanting to get out. The teachers are fab, welcoming and patient, it's worth the money and more. Becca, mum to Edwin
