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

Pool will be open at various times over the summer break, subject to chemical checks and the weather! Please check the calendar before travelling to the pool.

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 second half of 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 £39.75 per family to cover the cost of curriculum swimming and ongoing pool maintenance costs

You can also register here for your family to have access to out of hours swimming!
