Claygate Community Swimming Pool

Update - July 2022

There will be a lot going on with the pool whilst the children are away over the summer. 

What stage is the project at?

Most of the mechanical and electrical work are underway and much of the interior painting has now been completed. We have taken delivery of all the roofing materials and the windows are currently in production.  Over the summer the air conditioning plant and the ground source heat pump equipment will be delivered.  The cladding and translucent panels have been delivered and will be installed.



Plumbing, filters and pumps!

The filters, pumps, and boilers have been installed. The main distribution board is also in place and the general plumbing has been first fixed.



Great progress on the steel work

The cross beams of the roof will be fitted this week and the decoration of the steel work is now complete.

What about access to the pool?

Our jubilee walkway is underway, the new access path has been graded and the base course is being laid.

When can my children at CPS start swimming?

We anticipate that the children will be able to start their school swimming sessions in the Autumn Term.

When can the community start swimming?

The pool will be ready for swimming in the Autumn Term, and we will let members know as soon as it is open for use.

How do I become a member?

Membership is now open! Please apply by emailing

Please note that all members will be required to agree to the terms of the CCP Membership Agreement prior to the first use of the pool to ensure safe and responsible use

We look forward to seeing you in the pool soon.

An all year round swimming pool in Claygate


Why our pool matters

CPSPA was founded in the 1970s to fundraise for the existing open air swimming pool at the school that so many children have enjoyed and benefited from.

The pool was hand dug by parents and has been maintained since by the PA. It has been a long term aspiration of the school, Claygate Parish Council and many in the local community that the pool can be opened to the local community but without a roof, changing rooms and showers such opportunities have been limited, even during summer months. 

Our Vision
  • A high quality independent building.      
  • A building which uses the existing space dedicated to the swimming pool with no encroachment on the school field and playground.    
  • A design in keeping with the surrounding school buildings.     
  • A roof structure with potential to harness solar energy.     
  • A design that maximises natural daylight.  
  • A sustainable and well insulated facility.
  • Dedicated fully accessible route to the building.


How will this enhance our community?
  • A long life, high quality and sustainable, purpose-built swimming pool building.  
  • Year round swimming for all pupils, local residents and groups. 
  • Modern changing facilities and showers     
  • Additional community room, with kitchen, to be used in association with the swimming pool or independently.
  • Income stream to Claygate Primary School.
