We are proud to have our own swimming pool!

Children who attend Sir Harry Johnston International School have weekly swimming lessons in our school pool. Children in years 2-9 are also able to join our after school swimming clubs and compete in various competitions.

Our swimming pool is open to members of the public when it is not in use by the school.


The pool has changing room facilities, showers, a barbecue area, and picnic tables, all of which may be used by pool users.


Visitors can pay a one off annual membership, for unlimited use of the pool during club hours. To become a member, please fill in a membership form available from the school office.


Discounted ‘four-visit’ entry cards can also be purchased. Alternatively it is possible to purchase a day ticket.
