Kimbolton School swimming pool is in use by the school throughout the day and remains open in the evenings and on Saturdays for use by pupils and the local community. Our 25-metre pool is open for early morning swimming sessions (subject to school use) and evening use by the general public. The pool is also open during the school holidays.
Since the pool opened in June 2000, our after school swimming lesson scheme has been recognised as a centre of excellence. We offer lessons for children after school and during the holidays for all abilities. We also offer one-to-one lessons for children and adults.
Our pool is also available for private hire by schools, colleges or other groups. It can also be hired for birthday parties.
All employees at the pool have undertaken the relevent criminal record checks and have been trained in the school's safeguarding policies and procedures.
Kimbolton currently holds Approved Training Centre Status from the Institute of Qualified Lifeguards. ATC status was devised to ensure the British public is aware which swimming pools adhere to the strict IQL lifeguard training guidelines.
In December 2014 Kimbolton was awarded 100% at an external Approved Training Centre inspection for its training of lifeguards.
The ATC certificate was first awarded to the pool in 2000. The pool is undergoes regular inspection to ensure it is maintaining strict standards of lifeguard training.
