Swimming Pool

St Mary’s Swimming Pool is an immaculate, modern facility nestled in the beautiful 55-acre estate of St Mary’s School. It is 25 by 13 metres in size, allowing for six swimming lanes. There are bright, airy changing facilities with secure storage, and the pool has a comfortable viewing area.

Members can access a number of sessions across the week, during which time the pool will be divided into lanes. There are also family swims available, when one lane is provided, and the remainder of the pool is open for children and families to have fun, including the use of floats. Some of these sessions are open to the public, please check the timetable for details.

Throughout the week there are various specialist sessions which Members may choose to join, such as Twilight Swims in the winter months and Minnows sessions for babies and toddlers. These are charged at an additional minimal cost for members, and are open to non-members as well.

Current St Mary’s parents will benefit from a 50% discount on listed membership prices.

Swimming Lessons

We are delighted to offer swimming lessons at our beautiful swimming pool.

We offer lessons in four groups, using different ASA levels within these groups:

  • Babies and Pre-schoolers – Lessons for children aged 6 months to 5 years, an introduction to techniques.
  • Beginners – For those confident in the water, happy with a woggle or float, but unable to swim any stroke well.
  • Intermediate – For children who can swim or kick with a float, widths of the 13m pool using 1-2 strokes. Happy to play in the water but ready to learn swimming techniques.
  • Advanced – For those who can swim 2-3 strokes and who are able to swim one length (25m) or further in at least one stroke.

Swimming lessons will cost £6.50 per half hour and we aim for a maximum of six children per group. This offering ensures that your child gets plenty of swimming and instruction time during each lesson.

We also offer bespoke adult swim sessions with an instructor. Please contact the pool for information and timetables.
