Children’s swimming lessons

There is currently a large demand for children's swimming lessons. To add your child to the waiting list, please complete the registration form, by clicking on the 'Apply for Swimming Lessons' link below. 

Please be aware there will be an extensive wait to be allocated a space due to demand but also due to the impact of Covid-19. The wait could be around 18-months from point of application.

Children from the age of 4 can join the waiting list for 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 - 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.

Before completing the form, please make sure you have read our terms and conditions. Once you are on the list, when you receive a message detailing the swimming lesson offered, please contact us, before the deadline date, to secure the place.
