Craigroyston Community High School

Pool Information

Size: 25m x 4 lanes

Average Temperature: 28 degrees Celcius

Changing Rooms: A modern and spacious communal changing facility with individual cubicles and lockers. Entrance to the changing room is from the main school corridor with the pool leading on from the changing facility. We ask that pool shoe covers are worn in the changing facility and on poolside; this keeps it nice and clean for all our teachers and swimmers.

Hygiene: Our teachers really love it when children blow their noses and go to the toilet before the start of lessons. This tends to avoid any unwanted surprises and causes minimum disruption to the lessons

Meeting Point

Once children are changed they can take a seat by the far window at the shallow end before commencing the lesson. The Progress Adviser(s) on poolside will make it clear to the children where they need to go.

Viewing the Pool

Due to Health and Safety requirements at Craigroyston there is restricted viewing at the pool, however this may vary so please ask your Progress Adviser. There is seating for parents in the pool reception area and the venue is situated close to local shops and amenities. Parents are free to communicate with the lesson Progress Adviser with regards to the progress of their child. We have sole use of the pool facilities during lessons.
