All you need to know about Springfield School: A Crewe based swimming pool from which we run our Baby & Pre-School and our Swim Academy swimming classes. Midweek classes here are suitable for children aged 4-10 years old.  Friday, Saturday and Sunday we run classes suitable for babies and toddlers. Our expert swimming Teachers tailor the lessons to progress every individual at their own pace. We want all of our children to love the water and learn to swim beautifully in a fun, relaxed environment. We look forward to welcoming you to our swimming lessons at Springfield Sch, Crewe!

Location: Crewe Green Road, Crewe, Cheshire, CW1 5HS

Parking & Directions: Parking is available but not in the pool compound itself (safety risk for children walking around the school).  From the main road turn into the school and proceed along the one way system until you see the large green gates at the entrance to the pool – park anywhere you can but ideally do not enter the green gate/s. The gates will be left open during pool hire times for pedestrians.

Essential Information:

  • A well-fitting neoprene swim nappy must be worn with a disposable swim nappy or one of our environmentally friendly Nappy Wraps & Liners underneath if your child is in Floaties, Splashers or Kickers and in other programmes if they are not potty/toilet trained. Why not buy one of our great value Starter Packs which contain everything you need for your swim lesson?
