Barrow School

A charming 10m x 5m primary school pool located in the village of Barrow, a short drive away from Bury St Edmunds.

A few years ago, we redeveloped Barrow CEVC Primary School’s old pool for the enjoyment of our valued customers, the school itself and the local community.

The pool offers a warm, quiet and pleasant environment where your child can boost their confidence and enjoy their swimming lessons whilst making great strides in their technique in a short space of time, as you would expect from ESA.

We hope you love your time at Barrow School Pool as much as we have loved renovating it.

Important Rules for Barrow School

  • Any smaller children and babies that are not being taught must be kept under your control and not be allowed to leave your side.
  • Once you are in on poolside, please remove any outdoor footwear or put on overshoes provided. Buggies are not allowed on poolside to ensure good hygiene.
  • Please use the bins provided for used hand towels and general waste only. Please do not use the bins for soiled nappies, sanitary towels or clinical waste of any kind. These items must be taken off site by you.
  • No students are allowed into the pool outside of designated lesson times. Please do not get in early. When lessons have finished please get changed in the changing rooms (or on poolside) and leave quietly so as not to disrupt the next class or other users.
  • There is strictly no food allowed on poolside to protect our floors and cleanliness standards.
  • Please do not let your children and families run around the swimming pool or changing rooms once in the facility. Children must stay with you at all times, especially in the case of siblings during the lessons. Please do not let them run around outside either as cars will be coming and going and the surrounding areas are privately owned.
  • We take no responsibility for our students, their siblings, or families outside of the actual swimming pool and designated lesson time. It is your responsibility to make sure that your children (and families) obey the pool rules at all times and do not cause danger to themselves or others outside of your lesson time.
