Great Abington Primary School

Swimming Pool Season 2021

We are very excited that we have been able to open our pool for the summer term to the children at Great Abington. After such a disrupted year the children deserve some fun in the pool! Importantly they will also be learning a life skill and gaining water confidence ready for the summer holidays.


The programme this year is not as extensive as normal with increased testing due to COVID-19. Thank you to the volunteers who are supporting with our after school clubs - without you they would not be happening. Caring for our pool also takes time and motivation. This season our pool carers are: Ollie Waterson, Guy Underwood and Alina Ruziene


Below is information on the pool, our rules and guidance. If you have any concerns at all please do get in touch.


The pool is heated and is 10m x 5m in length and diameter
