Restoring the Swimming Pool at Fawcett Primary School in Trumpington

We are excited to announce that this week we started work on redeveloping and enclosing the old outdoor swimming pool at Fawcett Primary School in Trumpington. We have invested heavily into saving the derelict swimming pool from demolition in order to provide a vital facility for generations to come.

The swimming pool has been in a state of disrepair for the past 5 years so Fawcett Primary School were delighted when Elite approached them to partner on saving it.

The pool shell is being completely restored and a glass enclosure is being installed over it. There will also be a small changing block complete with showers and toilet facilities meaning the pool will be able to be used all year round for swimming lessons.

ESA Managing Director Ed Williams said “It is a huge privilege to be involved in this project to provide a much needed new facility for children to learn to swim. We have worked on similar renovation projects in the past but this will be our biggest transformation yet by turning an outdoor pool into an indoor one.”

The swimming pool will be heated with an air source heat pump and the pool water goes through a special recycling chamber making it an incredibly energy efficient project. The Trumpington Federation will have use of the pool during the day time and Elite Swimming Academy will use it to run private swimming lessons outside of school hours.

Executive Head of the Trumpington Federation Oriana Dalton said “We are delighted that the children at Trumpington Meadows and Fawcett Primary Schools will be able to use the pool all year round. This is an example of how collaboration and partnership can benefit the community”
