St John’s is fortunate to be one of the few primary schools in Hertfordshire to still have an outdoor heated swimming pool. Our pupils benefit greatly from using the pool during the school year to develop water confidence and basic swimming skills.
During the summer term the pool is open after school and during the summer holiday for social and family swimming and a qualified lifeguard is employed for these sessions.
We are very grateful to the PTFA who fund the upkeep and running costs of the pool. Recent work includes the installation of brand new changing rooms and new paving around the pool area.
