The Mall Pool
The Mall School is suitable for:
- Intermediate Swimmers (i.e. those who have good technique on front and back crawl for a minimum of 5m)
- Advanced Swimmers (i.e. those who can maintain good technique on front and back crawl with various breathing patterns on front crawl over 1 length minimum)
Intermediate and Advanced lessons are taught in the pool at the same time and are 30 minutes long :
Mondays only: lessons start 3.30pm, 4pm, 4.30pm, 5pm, 5.30pm
- Tutor ratio: 2 children in each intermediate group and most advanced groups. For the last advanced group there is maximum of 3 children per lane.
- Viewing lessons: Parents are not allowed on poolside, but there is a large airy dining room a few metres from the poolroom where parents can wait during lessons.
The school is on Hampton Road, very close to a few local landmarks – Fulwell Bus and Train Station; Squires Garden Centre; The Old Goat and Loch Fyne Restaurants.
Parking: There is no on-site parking, but plenty of residential roads that are within a few minutes walk. The best places are Golf Side and Stanley Road (behind the Loch Fyne Restaurant); Wellesley Road; Fifth Cross Road. Hampton Road near the school itself has lots of parking restrictions. As the council seems to be extending restricted parking everywhere, we would advise you to check carefully before parking on any road.
