Forrester High School

Pool Information

Size: 25m x 4 lane
Average Temperature: 28 degrees Celsius

Changing Rooms: The fantastic new facility offers excellent communal changing facilities with separate changing cubicles and poolside showers. Separate male and female toilets are available. The pupils' poolside entrance is via the showers. We do ask that all belongings are removed from cubicles during the lessons to ensure they are available for the next timeslot.

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

Children can make way onto poolside through the shower area and the Progress Adviser will show them where to go.

Viewing the Pool

Due to the school's Health and Safety requirements, we are asked that parents do not go on poolside during the lessons. You are, however, welcome to talk with the Progress Adviser should you wish to.
