Banstead School
Where or which school?

Reply from LNW : Hello Michael, I believe that David is interested in all aspects of old swimming pools in any school and is particulary after photos of completed old pools as in this image, but also photos taken during construction.

My question was meant to be "has anyone an idea which Banstead school this is?"

Reply from LNW; This was Banstead Hall we believe. There were other swimming pools at Rose Hill School in Park Road, Aberdour, the school in Shawley Way and also Greenacre. One of our members in the Banstead History research Group helped dig the pool at the current Banstead Junior School and another helped with the construction of the pool at Aberdour. The shuttering started to come away during the building of this last pool and I hope to have more on this soon.

This is the swimming pool I remember from the 1960's not much changed except a ladder for entry and exsit was there at that time

My memory is very sketchy but I do remember learning to swim in the pool at Banstead Junior school. I was there for 4 years ending in July 1971. It thought it was an outside pool but with wooden walls sheltering it from the rest of the school but I may have been mistaken. I then went on to Nonsuch in Cheam which also had a pool.
