All you need to know – The Milestone School

Longford Lane, Longlevens, Gloucester, GL2 9EU

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

Location: The Milestone School

Parking: There is plenty of parking outside the swimming pool building, in addition to extra parking in the main school car park.

Essential information:

  • As you enter the car park to The Milestone School, follow the road around to the right and around to the rear (through the gates) to the pool building.
  • You will need a door code to access the building. Please contact our office prior to your first lesson or courtesy class, to be given the code. Call 01452 473073 or email gloucestershire@puddleducks.com.
  • Please take all nappies home with you.
  • 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 plus 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?
  • Why not bring your child's pyjamas so they're all ready for a good  night sleep after a fun, tiring swimming lesson?
  • You can find lots more useful information about attending our swim classes on our FAQs page.

Changing Rooms:

  • As you enter the building there are two changing rooms via the door to your left.
  • Please do not change babies on benches, rather bring a roll up change matt or extra towels to change on the floor.
  • There are no lockers so please bring valuables poolside and leave your bags neatly for others to use the space.

Exclusivity: Puddle Ducks have exclusive use of the pool during our sessions.

Access:

  • Specatators are allowed at this location, however there is limited seating and space so please be mindful of other swimmers and try to limit spectators to just one.
