For half a century our school swimming pool has been enjoyed by our pupils and local community throughout the summer months and hundreds of children have leaned to swim there over the years.
Having not been able to use our swimming pool in 2020 due to Covid restrictions we managed to open it up again during the summer of 2021, due to substantial donations from both our parent community and PTA., so that it could be enjoyed by both our own pupils and the wider community throughout the summer season.
During this time it came to light that after being in situ at the school for approximately 50 years the pool was leaking vast amounts of water making it incredibly difficult to maintain and keep warm. Despite it's huge popularity it is now no longer viable to have in operation this year.
Being able to ensure that all our children learn to swim as part of our curriculum, some that may otherwise not get the opportunity, is incredibly important to the school and we are determined to get the pool refurbished and back to it's former glory so it can once again be enjoyed by anyone wishing to use it for many years to come.
The work required is extensive and includes all renewed pipework, liner, boiler, sand filter and ground work.
We desperately need to raise £50k in order to carry out the major repair work and get it up and running again. Raising this amount of money will be challenging but with your help we will get there!
