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

Location: Cuddington Croft Primary School, Cheam


There is a graveled area to the back of the school (where West Drive and the A232 meet). This area belongs to the school and parking is permitted here with no restrictions. Please do not block other cars in. Please also park where permitted along West Drive only or the surrounding residential roads (NOT Harefield Avenue opposite the school as the road is narrow and parking is difficult, restricting traffic access and residents driveways). 

Exclusivity: Puddle Ducks have exclusive use during hire times


Please do not arrive any earlier than 10 minutes before your lesson starts.

Please enter at the large green gate at the back of the school playing field (please DO NOT go to the school reception or wait at the main front gate). The gate is marked with a red X on the map to the left.

The pedestrian gate to the right will be open and you can walk down the path to the pool. Our staff will meet you at the pool. ALL prams and car seats must be left along the wall outside the pool building and are not allowed inside




Changing Rooms:  Two unisex changing rooms with a toilet are available for changing, pop up tents are also available for individual changing poolside. The changing rooms are relatively small so please bring minimum belongings with you. PLEASE NOTE: during the week the male changing room operates on a unisex basis. For health and safety reasons please do not change your baby on the benches

Essential Information: 

  • An approved well fitting neoprene, or similar fabric must be worn with a reusable eco-friendly NappyWrap & Liner or a disposable swim nappy underneath. This is if your child is in Floaties, Splashers, Kickers or any other programme if they are not yet fully potty/toilet trained. Why not buy one of our great value Swimming Kits which contain everything you need for your swim lesson?
