Free parking is available in the school car park.


Please be aware there are two pools on this site. We use the hydro pool at the top of the car park (opposite end to the entrance gates). The pool building is next to the main school building reception. 

From the roundabout, enter the car park and drive to the building at the very top and park in an available space. Enter the building through the automatic doors, next to the fire exit, using the push pad. Go past the classrooms and then in to the pool hall.
