URGENT UPDATE

URGENT Pool Closure Friday 10th November 2017

Unfortunately due to maintenance and a school event there will be no swimming on Friday 10th November 2017.

We apologise for this inconvenience and the date will be moved to the SPARE date the 15th December 2017, so with term weeks will not be effected. 

Many thanks

Website update

PoolSchools Website

We recently had to move the PoolSchools website to a different service provider/host. Unfortunately in this process the appearance of the calendar has changed and we cannot seem to get it back. The dates do remain correct but it is slightly different and not as easy to see some class activity. We are sorry about this and we are aware of it. We are in the process of having a whole new website which should be launched in Dec 2017 – this will hopefully, offer a clearer and easier way of accessing PoolSchools information. 

Thank you for .your patience.

BADGES AND STICKERS

PoolSchools have traditionally issued badges during weeks 3/4 & 5 .

This is changing.  Badges will now be issued week 8 and 9  each term . We will send out reminders and put up posters.

ask at reception or your teacher for the badges

Summer Term Dates 2017 Saturday limited to 11 week

We have just been informed due to planned schools events we will have to closed on 4 Saturday mornings between April and July . As a result we will only be able to run an 11 week course for swimmer with lessons on Saturday between 9.00-12.30.  This will result in a credit for the term being offered against the Autumn term fees or refund. Credits / refunds will be addressed at the end of the summer term. 

Full term dates are now available on the website

Term Times

Dates moved this term.

"SPARE"   A "SPARE " date is shown in the  timetable and should be considered part of  period when lessons may be held . From time to time it is necessary to change a planned  lessons during a term . On these occasions lessons will be moved to the SPARE date.  When a date is moved to the SPARE  during a term we consider the term/lesson as being available and supplied.  Credits are only issued when we are not able to rescheduled a lost session into a SPARE date.
