The School

We are very proud of this imposing and quirky building, Mountains Country House which is situated in 28 acres of land. There are two football and rugby pitches, an athletics field, cricket pitch and rounders pitch. Also three tennis courts, a walled garden, a cross country track, and our very popular indoor swimming pool.

The classrooms are light and vibrant places to work and all the children also use the computer room,  dining room, music room and library. Every classroom has been refurbished during the last eighteen months.

The Sports Hall is well equipped for gymnastics and ball games when the weather does not allow for physical education outside.

We use the grounds whenever possible as an outdoor classroom.  The younger children have outdoor sessions every week, rain or shine, as part of the curriculum and the older children enjoy the space to run about, climb and make dens. Children use the playground, ball court, trim-trail and ‘dingly dell’ during lunchtime play and also the playing fields during good weather.

The School Council recently requested a wildlife area with a pond so this has recently been constructed in the playground.

In front of Mountains Country house are two large car-parks available for Staff and visitors.

Swimming Pool

We have an indoor Swimming Pool which can also be hired when not in use by the school.

This attractive, indoor, heated swimming pool is 20 metres in length. The children swim in the pool from Kindergarten and have weekly lessons throughout the school year.

There are male and female changing facilities and a viewing area beside the pool.

There is a range of children’s swimming lessons offered by independent providers throughout the day and evening at Fosse Bank School. Further details are available at:
