Pupils at an Independent day and boarding school in Kent are now enjoying the benefits of a 25m, six lane indoor heated pool thanks to a design and build project just completed by Fowler Swimming Pools.

Co-educational Bethany School, set in the stunning Kent Weald countryside, has swapped its 1930s converted outdoor swimming pond for the new fully-tiled, deck level pool, which will be officially opened by Rebecca Adlington later this summer. Housed in a bespoke solid log building, built by Reading-based Norwegian Log, with changing rooms and office, the pool boasts underwater lighting, spectator seating and starting blocks. Underfloor heating in the changing rooms adds an added touch of luxury and comfort, along with lockers and partitions from Aaztec and tiles from Original Style. Plant room and technical fittings were supplied by Certikin.

Despite extremely challenging ground conditions and harsh winter weather, West Sussex-based Fowler Swimming Pools delivered the project with minimum disruption to the school. “This was the wettest site we have had for a long time. We had to install a new ground drainage system and instead of conventional foundations, had to pile. But once that had been done it was straightforward,” said Fowler Swimming Pools MD Tom Holman.

“Fowler Swimming Pools have done a superb job in very difficult circumstances and we are thrilled with it,” said school bursar Simon Douglass. “The team was extremely amenable, they even paused the piling work during exams. We now have a first class pool.”

Tom added: “The log building and pool definitely have the ‘wow factor’ and will benefit the school and pupils for many years to come.”
