Closure Notice


Dear friends of Tritons Swim School,

It is with great sadness that we have to inform you all that as of the 31st January 2020 Tritons Swim School will be closing. It has been our pleasure to have been part of such an amazing swim school for the past years, which is why this email has been one of the most difficult we have ever had to write.

As a way of saying thank you for your support over the years we would like to offer you as many lessons as you can manage between now and the end of January. We are trying to sort out a way of making online bookings for classes- until we have sorted this out, please just come to the pool during one of our sessions and we will slot you into the next appropriate class!

Pool coordinators will be available to speak at the poolside about what happened, provide advice on alternative swim schools and inform you about your child's progress.

Unfortunately the terms of the lease of the pool mean that The Community Pool CIC cannot generate the capital needed in order to create an environmentally efficient and economically viable swimming pool for the long term. The directors have taken the decision that The Community Pool CIC cannot continue trading in these circumstances.

We extend our thanks to the people and organisations that have supported the pool over the last decade: the pool staff, our users, and the many others who have given their time and efforts to provide this facility to the people of Waltham Forest.

The directors of The Community Pool CIC and the management of Waltham Forest College are discussing the future of the pool in the hope that it can reopen for community use and education some time soon. In the meantime, if you have any questions about this announcement, then please email or
