James Gillespie's - Edinburgh

Pool Information

Pool: 25m x 9m x 1.25-2m
Average Temperature: 29-30 degrees Celsius

Changing Rooms:There are private cubicles just off poolside to allow parents to help their child get ready for their lesson in privacy.

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 on the pool deck and wait to be collected by their teacher.

Viewing the Pool

There are poolside benches recessed just off the pool deck with limited viewing to allow parents to view the lessons. 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.

Personal Equipment

Compulsory:

  • Eye goggles must be worn to allow for clear vision.
  • No baggy shorts are allowed as they restrict leg movement.
  • All children must wear their SwimEasy swim cap to prevent distractions and for pool cleanliness.
  • Swimming Costumes must be tight fitting preferably one size smaller than normal.
  • Recommended:

  • Towel
  • Pool Shoes
  • Robe
  • T-Shirt
