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. 

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

Parking & Directions: Parking is available at the front of the school but not to the rear of the sports barn.  From the main road turn into the school and proceed along the one way system until you see the large green gates.  The gates will be left open during pool hire times for pedestrians only.  The swimming pool in the sports barn is visible here through the large windows.  Follow the building around, the sports barn entrance is at the rear of the building.
