Children’s swimming lessons

Due to the demand for swimming lessons for children, you will need to complete a registration form (see below) to add your child(ren) to the waiting list.

Children from the age of 4 years can join the Advanced Ducklings swimming lessons. To progress to levels one and above, your child must be in the school year that they turn 5.

Please note - as from 4th September 2017 following a change in CIMSPA and Swim England guidance swimming teachers will only teach from the side of the pool, there will be no change to the quality of teaching provided.

Our aquatic programme also offers:

  • diving
  • rookie lifeguards
  • teen swimming lessons

If you are interested please complete the registration form, so we can assess demand before arranging sessions.

When you receive a message detailing the swimming lesson offered, please contact us, before the deadline date, to secure the place.

Check your child’s position on the waiting list:
