The Jackson Pool

 The Priory Academy LSST recognises the importance of aquatics as being life skills that will ultimately enrich our students’ lives beyond their time at school.


During KS3, particular focus is given to developing fundamental swimming skills, water safety, lifesaving and personal survival skills.  In addition, games such as water polo, water volleyball and even the basic skills of kayaking and canoeing are explored.

All the activities are led by our own qualified and experienced swimming coach and lifeguard. 

 Priory Leisure

The Priory Leisure gym membership also extends to the Jackson Pool.  Two nights a week, students can use the pool for their own recreational use.  On poolside there are session plans available that offer a structured workout for all abilities, together with items of equipment and buoyancy aids. Alternatively, students can choose to have a water polo game with friends.  The pool is open for use to Priory Leisure members on a Tuesday and Thursday from 3.15-4.30pm.

Scuba Academy

The Priory Academy LSST is delighted to be able to offer a fantastic opportunity to learn how to scuba dive. Working in partnership with Stellar Divers, a local dive centre, the Scuba Academy offers the following PADI qualifications:

PADI Discover Scuba Diving
PADI Open Water Diver (referral or full course)

Sessions are part theory (classroom based) and part pool.  Later in the open water course, divers are taken to outside venues to experience deep open water in specialised dive lakes.  The PADI certification is recognised worldwide and will open up a whole host of  opportunities in learning further scuba diving specialties.
