  • 09/03/15--23:14: LIFEGUARDS
  • All our members of staff are lifeguard qualified and with our low teacher:pupil ratios we have an unparalleled safety record  over 21 years.  However, the new Municipality ruling asks for a lifeguard who is not also teaching to be poolside during lessons at all schools and swim academies.

    As it takes time to recruit suitable lifeguards to work with us we will be using an extra teacher or an outside lifeguard for all sessions.

    Please be sensitive to this and do not engage the nominated teacher or lifeguard in conversation about the programme as they will not be able to talk to you.
