All you need to know about Hebden Green School: A Winsford based swimming pool from which we run our Baby & Pre-School swimming classes. This lovely school pool has recently been refurbished and it is great! 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 Hebden Green Sch, Winsford!

Location: Hebden Green Community School, Winsford, Cheshire, CW7 4EJ

Parking & Directions: Puddle Ducks customers are requested to arrive after 3.45 for a 4pm lesson. The car park/access will be busy with school children & vehicles leaving the premises if customers arrive too early (between 3.30 and 3.45). Parking is available immediately on the left hand side as you enter the drive or go straight across the mini round-about and the pool building and further car parking is available on the large car park, again on the left hand side.

When you arrive at the School if you could report to reception and sign in there, then you will receive a code for the pool hall door (this code should stay the same each week).

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?
  • All nappies and swim nappies must be taken home and not left at the pool. Nappy bags are provided by your Puddle Ducks Teacher, if needed.

You can find lots more useful information about attending our swim classes on our FAQs page
