Community Cohesion – Pool Sessions

Welcome to the Loyne Hydro Pool.  Fully accessible to all, our pool is 12m by 5m with a maximum depth of 1.2m and an average temperature of 34°. Click on the session name below to learn more.  Please note all sessions are booked for 1 hour including changing time.  As our Hydro Pool is so lovely and warm we recommend you do not spend more than 40 minutes in the water.

Although there will always be a Life Saver present parents/carers are responsible for their children at all times.

Our pool ratios are as follows:

  • 1 adult to 1 child under 4 years
  • 1 adult to 2 children 4-7 years
  • 1 adult to 4 children 8 – 12 years

Please note: If you are pregnant we advise you do not use this facility.

All sessions are offered as block bookings per half term.  However, if you are unable to attend a session due to unforeseen circumstances you can transfer the session so you won’t lose any money providing you contact us to let us know.

Taster sessions are offered depending on availability.  Please contact us, telephone 01524 64543 or email pool@loyne.lancs.sch.uk.

Swimming Lessons

Our swimming lessons are run by our ASA Level 2 Aquatics Teacher who has over 13 years experience of teaching swimming. We offer ‘Learn to Swim Lessons’ from the year your child goes to school. At this age we feel that children are more able and confident following instruction and learning as part of a group.  Unfortunately we cannot facilitate 1:1 lessons or allow parents/carers in the water with their child.

Our Swimming Lessons are extremely popular and book up very quickly. Children love learning to swim in our beautiful warm pool which is heated to 34 degrees and does not exceed a depth of 1.2 metres.  Because of the heat, length and depth of the pool our top swimming distance is 100m before we encourage children to continue their swimming journey in a larger pool.

For further information please contact 01524 64543 and leave a message on our Hydro Pool phone, or email pool@loyne.lancs.sch.uk.
