Opened in 1987 by Olympic gold medallist David Wilkie, Stonyhurst Sports Centre features a 25 metre, six-lane swimming pool, heated to 28 degrees.

The swimming pool is open to members of the public for monthly or annual membership, as well as being a facility for Stonyhurst pupils.


Our swimming pool is very much at the heart of the Stonyhurst Sports Centre, with our gym overlooking the 25m pool area, and a viewing balcony for parents and supporters.

Swimming is the ideal, low-impact workout and by swimming regularly, you really will start to feel the benefits, whatever your age or ability. It’s the perfect way to start or end your day!

UV Chlorination

The swimming pool water is treated by UV lighting technology, making it safer and cleaner for our swimmers. We currently use 75% less chlorine in our pool.


The Sports Centre is open 360 days each year, closing only for the main Christmas holidays.
