The pool at St Rose's is a lovely and warm hydrotherapy pool, with lots of natural light. We hire the pool exclusively for Turtle Tots use. We run our baby, toddler and big swimmer classes at this pool.
Parking: Parking is free of charge at the school. Please park in the visitors car park at the front of the school. If this is full, there is another car park towards the rear of the school, you will need to approach the gates for them to be opened (past the pool building on your left, turn right just past the blue shed doors).
If you use the rear car park please do not park near the sensory garden during the week as mini buses arrive at 3pm to collect the students and they need clear access to load the students onto the buses.
We are also allowed to park on the grass at the end of the car park in dry weather.
The pool building is the new modern glass fronted building. Report to reception where you'll be asked to sign in and take the lift to the first floor to the swimming pool area. Please remember to sign out when you leave, thank you. Please arrive at reception no earlier that 15mins before your class time.
Changing rooms: There are two communal changing rooms, plastic tubs are provided to put your belongings in to keep them clean and dry and to leave the changing room free for the next class to change.
The first changing room is for ladies and the second changing room is for men. Ladies are also able to use the pool side staff changing room if needed. If you are changing your baby and you are dry (i.e. haven't been in the pool) you can use the changing mats in the hall. Please do not get changed pool side.
A reusable or disposable swim nappy and Happy Nappy is the only swimwear your baby will need to wear at this pool. Babies can swim from birth at this venue.
Health and Safety: Nappies- bins are provided for the disposal of nappies, these have yellow binbags in- please do not put nappies in any other bins. Please ensure you supervise your child at all times. The changing room and pool side can get wet and slippery. Please do not change your baby on the benches- please use a mat on the floor.
Refreshments: There is a water cooler in the waiting area next to the pool.
