Swimming Lessons & Courses

Swim School (Juniors)

Following the Prime Minister’s recent announcements regarding the Government’s latest guidance and response to the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Pandemic we have cancelled the remaining lessons for the Spring Term Swim School. This was not an easy decision for us to make and we hope everyone can accept our apologies.

We are hoping that we will still be able to run our Summer Term Swim School, details of which can be found below, but we will be monitoring the situation daily and will inform attendees of any changes in plans.

We run weekly swimming lessons for ducklings and stages 1-7+ during term-time.

Lessons will last 30 minutes and will take place on weekday evenings between 17.15 and 20.15 (16.15-20.15 on Wednesdays). Your child’s day of attendance will depend on your child’s swim stage and will be confirmed prior to the start of term.

Lessons cost £6.50 per week, payable termly.

Summer Term 2020 Dates
