Swimming Pool at Huntcliff School

Dear Parent/Carer

You will know that the swimming pool has been closed for some time because we had organised to have a full conditions survey. This has now been completed and, following the recent meeting of the Governors at Huntcliff School, it has been decided that we are not in a position to be able to refurbish the pool owing to the amount of funding that would be required.

Many parents will remember that the pool started life as an open air facility and remained that way until 1990, when the roof was added – it was re-opened as a covered pool on 23 November 1990. And we have managed to keep this valuable facility open for many years

Huntcliff School was the only school in the area with its own swimming pool and it has been an important part of school life for staff, pupils and the local community for over forty years. This facility has served us well, not only as a fantastic teaching and learning facility, but also by hosting swimming galas/events and many swimming lessons with local clubs.

We are now exploring grant funding opportunities to enable us to improve our sports facilities at the school.
