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

Location: St Michaels Middle School

Parking: Through front gates, directly outside in the school car park. The entrance to the pool can be found on the right hand side. 

Essential Information:

  • Strictly no outdoor shoes poolside
  • 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 yet fully potty/toilet trained. Why not buy one of our great value Starter Packs which contain everything you need for your swim lesson?  Please note due to Covid-19 guidelines we will not be able to lend any swim nappies currently.
  • All Swim Academy Children must wear swim hats in the pool. You can find these plus our range of goggles and other Swim Accessories here
