Learn to swim

Achieving my next badge

Learning to swim is an essential life skill. 

If you can swim you can enjoy all of the exciting activities that the water has to offer.  We offer lessons for all ages and all of our lessons are taught by qualified teachers.  We work to the National Governing Body for Swimming’s (ASA) Learn to Swim Pathway in all of our sessions.

Pre-school lessons

Sessions are aimed at babies and toddlers aged between 4 months-4 years old and aim to build the foundation for a lifelong love of water.

Swimming Lessons for School Age Children

Seven stages of fun and exciting lessons developing all of the skills needed for children to be competent, confident and safe in the water.

Aquatic Skills Lessons

When your child has completed stage 7 of the Learn to Swim Pathway they will have the opportunity to choose from a number of other aquatic activities such as; Competitive Swimming,  Rookie Lifesaving, Synchronised Swimming and Water Polo.  (Please note, activities vary between sites).

Adult Swimming Lessons

Adult lessons are available for all abilities whether you have a fear of the water, haven’t been swimming since school or if you want to refine your technique ready for an event.

Private Lessons

Whether you are an adult who has never swum before, or you would like some extra water confidence ahead of a big holiday, we can help.  For children we offer private lessons as an alternative or in addition to group lessons.  Private lessons are a great way to help your child if they are struggling with certain criteria on the curriculum and get them moving towards the next Stage in their swimming lessons. 

Intensive Summer Courses

Get a head start in lessons or practice the skills needed to move up to the next Stage. Our intensive Summer courses are a great way to get some extra practice in and build on swimming skills quickly.  Each course runs Monday - Friday and costs £27.75 per child.  If you are unsure of which Stage is appropriate for your child, just give us a call and our Swim Co-ordinators will help.
