About Us

We are Sylvestrian Leisure Centre

A fabulous dual-use, 5 million pound Leisure Centre, located in the heart of Forest School.

In 2008 Forest School opened its doors to the community and created the Sylvestrian Leisure Centre. Opened by the Duke of York in January, we then invited the community to use our facilities at exceptionally reasonable prices when you consider the range of equipment, staffing and facilities that are on offer.

In 2012, Sylvestrian Leisure Centre was choosen from a pool of 90 other leisure facilities to operate as a quiet training camp for five sporting disciplines for Team GB.

  • Hockey (men’s and women’s)
  • Fencing
  • Boxing
  • Taekwondo
  • Swimming

These teams and individual athletes used our facilities for the duration of the Olympics, utilising the fantastic facilities while being out of the hustle and bustle of the Olympic Village.

Within the last few years, our own programme of activities has rapidly developed into the cutting edge of service providers within the area. Click on the below links for more information:

We welcome you to Sylvestrian Leisure Centre with open arms and to assist you on your journey for either yourself or your children.
