We can’t wait to welcome you to Puddle Ducks at Rose Hill School – in the meantime, here’s some information that we hope you find useful. Have a splashtastic time!

Location: Rose Hill School

Parking: There is ample free parking in the gymnasium car park. Puddle Ducks customers should proceed past the school and the gymnasium car park will be directly in front of you. There will be signs to direct you to the changing rooms and pool.

When walking from the car park to the Pool Building please keep to the paths directly in front of the school buildings and do NOT walk in the road.

Essential Information:

  • We recommend that you bring a changing mat with you to the lessons so that you always have a dry place to change your baby.
  • You will be asked to shower before entering the pool.
  • A well-fitting neoprene swim nappy must be worn with a disposable swim nappy or one of our environmentally friendly NappyWrap & 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. 
  • You can find lots more useful information about attending our swim classes on our FAQs page.
