Parking & Directions: If arriving before 4pm, please park on the road and walk in the school gates.  If you arrive after 4pm, you may drive into the school grounds through the 'staff parking entrance'. Once inside the school gates, turn immediately left and park here.  Once parked, walk with the school buildings to your left (the road should be on your right) and follow the paved driveway around the side of the building.  This will then turn into a path – go through the gates and continue to follow the path round keeping the buildings to your left.  The pool hall is on your left through a wooden gate almost immediately after going through the blue gate on the path. 

Please enter the pool through the doors marked.  Please do not try and access the pool through the main school entrance. The Poolside Assistant will be in the pool hall and happy to answer any of your questions on arrival.
