Arriving at the venue, swimmers should enter at the main school entrance. The main school entrance may appear closed this is normal.
The staff onsite will then show you to the pool and changing room areas.
Changing Rooms: The changing rooms are open and available to use before and after your lessons. The changing room setup is a open plan, with this in mind we would ask that parents remove bags and clothing between classes.
Identifying your teacher: When attending for your first lesson please notify the class teacher that it is your first visit to the lessons. If you have your welcome email to hand this will help speed the process pool side. This will help the class teacher locate you on the class list.
Spectating & Viewing
Due to the limited space on poolside viewing is not available at Bannockburn High School.
There are options to view externally however we appreciate that this would be weather dependant.
Our lesson coordinator and support teachers will remain on site to help support you swimmer for the duration of the lesson.
Pick Up & Drop Off
All swimmers should enter poolside via the changing rooms. Please use the blue pool shoe coverings provided or remove outdoor footwear when entering poolside. Swimmers will be collected and dropped by the class teacher at the entrance of poolside area. Please note to ensure the safety of all our swimmers we have asked our teaching team to ensure that swimmers are handed over to a responsible adult at the end of each lesson this is regardless of age. Please arrive on time for the start and end of your scheduled lesson to ensure the smooth transition of classes.
* All lessons are 30mins in length.
