Swimming Lessons


If you would like to learn to swim or gain more confidence in the water, we offer a range of swimming lessons for adults and children. More advanced classes are also available through our swimming clubs.


Parent and child classes

If you have children aged from six to 36 months these classes is a great way of introducing them to water. Run by qualified teachers, you and your child will learn how to enjoy the water safely. These lessons run in line with the school terms.


If you have children aged three or four, these lessons will help them to gain the confidence to move freely on their own in water.

Stages 1 to 7 and personal survival bronze, silver and gold challenge awards
