Transforming Sport

The radical transformation of our sports facilities will ensure pupils not only have a state-of-the-art complex in which to participate in a variety of sports and activities but will also enable the most driven to train and compete at the highest level. The building will consist of three linked pavilions; a new swimming pool, sports hall and fitness centre. It will also be available to the local community.

Inside the new facilities

  • An 8 court sports hall - double capacity of the old building
  • 6 squash courts - previously there were 4
  • 6 fives courts - one will also be used for a golf simulator
  • 6 lane 25 metre swimming pool - with tiered spectator seating for 150
  • A large Athletic Development Gym
  • 7 lane shooting range - previously 6 lanes
  • 12m x 12m dojo
  • Viewing galleries
  • Increased changing facilities
  • Flexible space for classes

The next phase of work:

  • External walls, clading and windows in the pool and fitness pavilion are nearing completion.
  • The roofs on all three pavilions are almost finished.
  • The mechanical and electrical services within the pool are due to be finished and then the pool will be rendered.
  • The installation of the mechanical and electrical servies will also begin within all three pavilions.

This will be followed by:

  • Pool tiling and finishes should be completed and the pool filled.
  • Heating will be installed across the site.
  • Internal fitting out of the building undertaken, inc. squash courts, fives courts, sports hall flooring.
  • Ceilings and decorations to commence.
