SWIMMING POOL DEVELOPMENT UPDATE
We are delighted to announce that construction work on Huish Leisure’s new indoor swimming pool is on schedule and will open for use on Monday 11th June.
The £1.2 m project, funded by Sport England, South Somerset District Council and the Academy, will enclose the existing lido pool, thus providing all-year round indoor swimming facilities, including new, accessible changing areas. This will improve the facility for all Academy students, users of the leisure centre and the wider community. It is envisaged the Centre will become a real benefit to the local community offering a variety of swimming activities, including aqua fit, a range of swimming lessons and parent and baby sessions. Attracting more visitors and boosting the local economy.
Principal Chris Wade said “It’s terrific we have been able to invest in this new facility, many students will be encouraged to take up active swimming pursuits and our vision is that all students will be able to swim before they leave Huish Academy”
