All you need to know about Knypersley First School: This lovely warm school pool is based North of Stoke-On-Trent and is ideal for Baby and Pre-school swimming classes. Our classes for babies and toddlers aged 0-4 years run on a Saturday. 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 Knypersley First School!
Location: Newpool Road, Biddulph, ST8 6NN
Parking & Directions: Parking is available on the School Car Park during weekends, the blue gates will be left open for the duration of the lessons. Please take care as there are pedestrians on the car park. Overflow parking is available on the road.
Pushchairs may be required to get from the car park to the pool entrance but should be left outside the pool building (it is under shelter).
Pool Location once on site: Look for the grey gates to the rear of the car park. Go through them and turn left. Go straight through the 2nd set of gates with the school to your left and the playground in front of you. Follow the buildings round and go left to find the pool – the blue building. Turn left through the blue gates and then right into the pool (white doors).
