Swimming Pool Success

Swimming Pool Success(Posted on 12/07/18)

Students and Staff at The Maelor School, Penley, are very happy to announce that our school swimming pool will remain open for the forthcoming year.  A governors committee met on Monday and voted unanimously to shelve plans for closing the pool and to redouble the schools efforts to market it to the local community over the next year.

Governors were overwhelmed with the supportive comments from the local community, nearby primary schools and community councils.  Headteacher Simon Ellis stated “We all felt very proud of our local community for campaigning to keep our pool, it is an important asset to the school and one that is vital in teaching pupils both young and old essential skills for life. I would like to thank the governors, local authority and community in joining together to keep the pool open.”

Business Manager Andy Heron said “Together with the local authority the school will be exploring ways to increase the pools usage over the coming year, the community are proud to have the pool and we want to see them able to use it.”
