Children's Swimming lessons

A new swimming scheme was launched at the Sports Centre in September 2011. Following the AquaQuack swim scheme, the lessons are based on Fun, Format and Feedback.

We believe learning to swim is a necessary skill and a rewarding experience. Our committed instructors are continuously trained to ensure they can inspire learning within a structured teaching programme. Our primary focus is to ensure safety and confidence in the water through offering weekly term time lessons or crash courses during the school holidays.

Lessons begin with Duckling Classes for parent and children from the age of 2½ which currently run on a Friday morning. These are followed by four FUNdamental classes (age 4 plus) before the children move on to one of the 7 PROgression classes, which run on Monday and Wednesday afternoons and Saturday and Sunday mornings.  At the end of the course your child will be a confident and efficient swimmer.  We also run a Gulls class on a Thursday afternoon for those experienced children who have completed the scheme.

Low pupil to teacher ratios are designed to maximise learning, with class sizes of 4 – 7 for FUNdamentals, and groups of 8 – 9 for the PROgressions classes.


Swimmers are required to attend a FREE 15 minute swimmer assessment in advance to ensure they are placed in the right level of class.
