THE COLLETON POOL (Open to families of The Colleton School)

Check email from school for details

Registrations now being taken for out of hours swimming after half term

We are very lucky to have an on-site pool, which means that Colleton pupils from Foundation to Year 6 are able to benefit every year from weekly swimming at school during the summer term, rather than having to travel to receive the statutory curriculum swimming lessons for just one term at some point during KS2. 

The pool is run and financially maintained by the Colleton PTA and as such we ask for a single donation of £35 per family to cover the ongoing pool maintenance costs, which this year can be paid via your Scopay account (please note the payment will appear for each child however you only need to pay once per family).

Once you have made the payment, you can register here to have access to out of hours swimming!


Register your details here to enjoy out of hours swimming!

The pool is run entirely by volunteers, if you'd like to get involved please email us at

By making the £35 curriculum swimming donation and completing this registration form you and your immediate family will have access to out of hours swimming for the duration of the season.
