Swimming Lessons

Winner of Best Swimming Class (Ages 4+) Little Vikings Awards 2024!

 

Swimming Lessons

 

Our extensive timetable of lessons follow the Swim England Learn to Swim Pathway. This structured pathway allows all learners to progress at their own pace, developing into confident swimmers. We carefully monitor the progress of each pupil, ensuring that they improve and develop according to their individual needs and ability. You can track this progress online via our Home Portal. All swimmers enjoy 30 minute lessons. This is with the exception of the Development Squads who have 60 minute lessons. Our courses run for four, seven or 12 consecutive weeks accordingly.

All individuals enrolled on any of our swim schemes must complete a Medical Emergency Contact Detail form, which can be found here.

Please note: there is a one-off wristband payment of £5 per person enrolled on our swim scheme. Monthly Direct Debit payments include four free lessons per year to cover a two week break at Christmas and for any unforeseen pool closures.

All our lessons run throughout the year (through school holidays) apart from a break at Christmas and continue on Bank Holiday Mondays as well.

Our waiting lists are temporarily closed, so please wait until July to complete the enquiry form, with as much information as possible about your child’s swimming ability, and we will add them to the correct waiting list.

Waiting list now closed please check again in July 2024

    Children are able to complete The Swim England Swimming Club awards which help children make the transition from the Swim England Learn To Swim Programme to a club level swimmer, plus they can complete distance awards 1,000m to 1 mile.

    During their time in the Development squads, they will learn legal starts and turns as well as timed swims and will have an eight week assessment where they will need to reach various timed swim targets. These will be used to assess their suitability for the Squads and to monitor their improvement over the weeks. Children who are new to the sessions wil attend an eight week trail to ensure that they are meeting the targets.

    They will also need to learn the development terminology, this will be given to them in their first lesson, and how to use the pace clock for rest intervals and start times. They work on timed sets using the pace clock for rest intervals and starts (using the blocks) and turns.
