Our heated swimming pool is a fabulous asset for both the College and the community. Lavers Hill College is the only school in the district to have its own indoor pool.
The facility is a legacy of Cliffy Young’s famous win in the 1983 Ultra-marathon and its operation is overseen by the Pool Committee.
