Pool Safety

As many of you are aware the security at BISP school is currently being reviewed. As part of this measure the pool facilities will be locked outside of curriculum classes.

Parents and/or students may only enter at designated times when a lifeguard is present (or they are registered in a class or session.)

Adult Swimming

Classes

Adult classes are available for booking via the flying fish programme. Please email[email protected]

Adult Lap Session

We are fortunate to be able to use a lifeguard this year to offer some additional adult lap sessions. No coaching is offered at these sessions. Adult lap sessions are available on Friday 8:05-9:05 at the 50m pool (4 lanes) and Saturday morning 8:30-10:30am at the 25m pool (2 lanes).

This is lap swimming only and no students/children are allowed to be in the pool premises at this time unless registered in another swim class.

Any adults using the pool facilities must remember to only use the adult bathrooms at the deep end of the 50m pool. The bathrooms located at the sports hall are only for BISP students and supervising teachers.

Please only enter the pool when it is being supervised by a lifeguard or coach.

Family Swim Session

BISP is trialling a family swim session from 1:30-3:30pm on Sundays. Parent/guardians are still responsible for supervising children and it is expected that users follow all pool rules.

Families need to be members of BISP and there will be a maximum of 45 people in the pool at any one time. If the pool reaches capacity a sign will be placed on the door and no additional families will be allowed to enter until other users leave.

Lap Swimmers and Family users please note:

In case of inclement weather swimming will not be allowed. It is unsafe to stay in the 25m pool area if a thunderstorm is nearby and this venue may be evacuated. Sometimes there is staff illness, major BISP events or other extenuating circumstances that will mean we need to cancel Adult Lap or Family Swim Sessions.

Please check the google swimming pool calendar for up to date information before proceeding to the pool. This calendar will be up and running in the next week.

Private Lessons

Some BISP staff offer private lessons at the pool. This is by agreement with BISP and pool space for these sessions is booked by the coach.

Private lessons are normally only available after 5:00pm weekdays, weekends and where pool space is available. Prices are set by individual coaches, please ask coaches or check website information available here.
