Project Outline

Windermere School is an independent, co-educational boarding and day school in the English Lake District. Being responsible for large numbers of young people plus staff, they take water safety very seriously and required implementation of a complete a water-safe solution.


Prior to taking the role of operations manager at Windermere School, Richard Hennah managed the water-safe contract for Barrow Borough Council and was therefore aware of the importance of appointing a competent water regulation compliance company. Having done some research on providers, he appointed Aquatrust because we met all his requirements. We have delivered a range of services including legionella risk assessments, monitoring and control systems and remedial works to ensure that all water systems remain safe for students, visitors and staff.


Aquatrust’s risk assessments have been thorough with detailed schematics and photographs helping me to identify the weaker areas on my new estate. They also implemented professional monitoring procedures and have also been very responsive to remedial improvements.

I therefore have no reservations about recommending Aquatrust to any Estates Manager who wants the confidence that they have identified the significant risks and are following a suitable and sufficient water-safe programme.”
