Hydro Pool News at Avalon

 “Thank you so much!” is the message from Avalon’s pupils and teachers, who are grateful for the unstinting support shown by the local community over the past few years. Headteacher Alison Murkin, said:

 “This has been a real labour of love and our pupils have been incredible. They have each used their abilities and ideas to raise money for the pool, and have inspired so many others to help us. I would like to say a huge thank you to them and also to all the local groups and those wider afield, who have contributed to making this pool a reality.''

 With the Hydrotherapy Pool build fundraising complete and the pool in sight, pupils are now setting their minds to funding the £115, 000 equipment needed to fit it out. 


The Hydrotherapy Pool will be built within the school grounds to the designs below, which reflect the buildings in the area. The design has been carefully planned to provide an excellent facility when built, but also to provide the opportunity for further development in the future. As built, the designs below provide everything required to meet the needs of pupils and visiting groups:

·         A pool to meet Sport England’s guidance

·         Three changing cubicles and three large showers

·         One accessible bathroom and changing room

·          A small group changing room 


We now need to start fundraising for the interior equipment which will cost around £115,000 and any support to help achieve this would be appreciated.   

Individuals: Donations will be so gratefully received online via the link to Givey. https://www.givey.com/friendsofavalonpta
