New swimming pool at Derwen

The swimming pool was built in 1971 at a cost of £15,800.

Forty-six years later, in 2017, we raised £50,000 – enough to replace the pool’s heating system.  This ensure’s our students can continue to use the pool for recreation, sport and even training for Duke of Edinburgh’s awards.

During 2018 Derwen Charity fundraised for a hydrotherapy pool (the building of which was completed during the summer of 2019). The pool allows students who require this beneficial therapy to receive sessions which help them to relax, and to ease pain, provide resistance, and encourage a wider range of controlled movements.
