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

The pool is now closed for the season - check back in next Spring for updates on opening times

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 £30 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!

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