Directions and parking
From the A43 exit take Tiffield exit into St Johns Road. Turn into the Gateway School complex. Keep left and follow the road down and around the school perimeter (there are 15mph signs along this road). Follow the road down to the end opening out into a spacious car park. The building in front of you to the right of the sports courts houses the pool. If this car park is busy proceed 25 yards back up the drive and on the left is another car park effectively above the pool the pool car park.
Both male and female changing rooms are located next to the pool.
From the car park go up the steps and enter the building via the black door (there is a ‘swimming pool’ sign on the wall at the top of the steps). Turn immediate left and follow the corridor to the end, through the door and turn right. Please remove shoes so the changing rooms and pool area are kept as clean as possible. The female changing rooms are first on the right and the male changing rooms at the end. Please bring any items of value onto poolside and please do not leave bulky car seats or equipment in the changing areas; bring items onto poolside.
