March saw the opening of Windlesham House School’s new state-of-the art new sports complex by 5 times Olympian Mark Foster

The previous swimming pool was built over 80 years ago, although leading the way for a prep school in 1930 and launching the swimming career of Olympian swimmer Duncan Goodhew, the time had come for a new one. The new 25 metre pool has 6 lanes and will be used for galas and recreational swimming. It features the latest energy saving technology and water filtration system.

Mark Foster, Olympic Swimmer, said: “I am blown away by the fantastic sports centre at Windlesham”.

When asked why the new sports centre would make such a difference one child said, “We are really happy about the new sports centre because it is a huge upgrade to what we have had and it will make competitions and galas so much more exciting”.

This is a landmark year for Windlesham who celebrated their 180th anniversary and 50 years of being the first co-ed prep school.
