Autumn Term URGENT WEEK ONE DELAYED

Posted on: July 7th, 2015

We apologise for delayed opening 

Due to a mechanical failure in the pool plant room over the holidays the pool will not open until later in September

Update 10th  September

The pool is in operation for the school however the water temperature is around 26 degrees.  THIS IS TOO LOW FOR TEACHING We normally operate at 27.5-29.5 degrees. 

The Grammar school have informed us that repairs will be completed by 18th September. The pool water temperature will then begin to rise  we anticipate resuming lessons shortly after.

We will contact all swimmers as soon as we are aware that the pool temperature is approaching an acceptable level and confirm the start date. 

We will be able to deliver the full 11 week progra
