We seek your support in ensuring that we comply with health & safety regulations, by allowing emergency service vehicles to readily access the front area of the school. Please do not park on the grass, or any area of the car park out with the designated parking bays. The disabled parking bays at the front of the school are only for the use of staff/visitor blue badge holders. There are also sections in the car park specifically for dropping off and for motorcycles ~ please leave these areas/bays free for that purpose. Thank you for your support.

Spectating is not permitted poolside. The poolside area is very tight and does become wet during the lessons. 

There is a glazed section that does give view's into the pool hall. This area does become busy, if you are using this area please be mindful of other families that may also be wishing to view part of the lesson delivery.


There are area's within the school that parents can wait whilst the lessons take place.

Goggles are an essential piece of kit during the lessons.
