- Learn a life skill
- Boost water confidence

Swimming Lessons For All:
Adult & Child Sessions – Our Infant Aquatics programme offers entry level sessions designed to build water confidence. These sessions take place in our small pool and require a parent/guardian to take part.
Discovery Ducklings 1 & 2: 0-1 years
Discovery Ducklings 3 & 4: 1-2 years
Ducklings 1 & 2: 2-3 years
Ducklings 3 & 4: 3-5 years
Junior Swimming Lessons – Our Learn to Swim Programme follows the Swim England stages 1-10 and is suitable for children aged 4 years and above. At each stage there are a range of outcomes which the children must achieve in order to progress onto the next stage.
If you are unsure on which Stage your child should be joining, click here and scroll down to read through the Swim England Award outcomes. In their first lesson they will also have an assessment from the swim teacher who can then advise if the class is the correct level for them, or if any movements need to occur.
Further Aquatic Development – We have introduced Rookie Lifeguard and Pre-Competition Development courses. Built into the Rookie Lifeguard programme are lessons in valuable survival, rescue and sports skills, all delivered in an exciting way that will get children involved and motivated. The course can run parallel to your child’s current swimming lessons and will enhance the skills they learn in the pool. The Pre-Competition Development Awards help to develop the skills and confidence needed for those who want to enter swimming competitions.
Adult Swimming Lessons – Suitable for anyone aged 16+, from a complete beginner, to a competent swimmer who would like to improve their techinque. Click here for more information on the Swim England Adult stages.
Due to an unprecedented demand for lessons we are now at full capacity and at present are unable to take on any new swimmers.
We hope to be able to open spaces to new members soon, but at present we do not have a timescale for when this will be. However, as soon as we have availability, the lesson slots will be visible via our online booking system & will be communicated via our website and social media channels.
All group lesson fees are collected via a monthly Direct Debit on the 1st of each month:
30 minute lessons – £32 a month per child
55 minute lessons – £41.50 a month per child
The minimum period of contract is 3 full monthly payments as per our terms & conditions.
Lessons run for 46 weeks per year as we believe that students learn through routine and consistency, therefore, we do not close on every school holiday. We only have closures for a total of 6 weeks; 2 week period during Easter, 2 weeks during the Summer and 2 weeks over the Christmas and New Year period. The monthly direct debit payment is to cover the 46 weeks that we operate our swimming lessons.
Our next breaks are as follows:
Easter – Tuesday 5th April – Monday 18th April (last lessons on 4th)
If you have any other queries, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will do our best to respond as soon as possible.
Review progress at any time!
All swim school members receive access to their own Course Pro HomePortal account as part of their membership, which can be used to find out information about your child’s lessons and monitor their progress. You can also add additional children to your account if you have more than one child enrolled onto our swimming programme.
If you joined online you will be sent an email to activate your account. Once activated you can simply login using your account details.
What can I use the HomePortal for?
- Monitor your child’s progress and view achievements & badges.
- Gain instant feedback from teachers who can update lesson information at the touch of a button.
- Once your swimming teacher notifies you that your child is ready to move up a stage, you can use the portal to choose a suitable day & time for the new class.
- If you would like to change to another day/time for the same stage you will need to contact us via email or inform the swimming teacher so that we can unlock your portal to allow for you to move to another lesson.
