THE gym at the Oratory School in Woodcote has been closed to the public.
Members were told they could no longer use the facility after it moved to a new building in the school grounds on Thursday last week.
In a circular email, headmaster Clive Dytor said the independent school wanted to offer longer gym hours to its pupils. He said those who had already paid their £20 membership fee this month would be refunded.
The Oratory has just completed a £4 million upgrade of its sports facilities, including a new 25m five-lane swimming pool with new changing rooms, a viewing area, poolside showers and a cafe.
These are still open to the community, as are its refurbished squash and real tennis courts.
