Swimming pool receives “top marks”

Posted In General

Built in 2016, Bethany’s 25m indoor swimming pool has been given “top marks” by The Cool Pool. The six-lane facility, which replaced the old outdoor pool, took over a year to build and now plays host to our extra-curricular activities programme, swimming galas and meets with other schools.

Headmaster, Francie Healy, said: “Our pool is a first-class facility and has certainly raised sporting aspirations at Bethany. They did a superb job in very difficult circumstances and we are thrilled with it. The pool has widened our sporting profile, allowing swimming to be part of our sports programme all year round; we are now hosting swimming galas and meets with other schools and the pool is also used as part of the PE curriculum for all Year Groups, teaching lifesaving and fitness training within the Sports Scholarship programme.”

The pool was opened at our annual Speech Day in 2016 by double Olympic gold medallist Rebecca Adlington OBE, alongside Tom Holman from MD of Fowler Swimming Pools and Nick Forrester, MD of Norwegian Log Buildings Ltd.
