School aged lessons have a strong focus on developing swimming technique, including learning and becoming adept at all the different swimming strokes.

Safety and swim and survive is still paramount in our lessons, with growing your child's confidence in the water.

Our staff are highly trained to instruct and support every child's development while learning to swim. Our programme structure compliments progression through the levels as your child develops.

These levels, as with all our swim school levels, are set by ability rather than by age. This allows your child to move to the next level as soon as they have attained the required criteria.  These swimming classes run six days a week, all year round and are 25 to 40 minutes long.
