We teach children aged three and above. We do encourage parents to familiarise their children with a swimming pool environment before bringing them. This is to hopefully minimise any tension or stress that can be caused in the initial stages of learning to swim.
Please arrive at the swimming pool ten minutes prior to the lesson and change into swimwear. Then, when possible make yourself know to one of the staff and we will advise you from there.
All you need to bring along is a swimming costume/trunks/shorts and towel. Swimming goggles are optional, but can be useful.
All flotation aids are provided, we generally use swim fins which are worn on the back and expertly weighted to provide support when needed.
Each lesson is assessed and if a teacher is deemed necessary in the water then this will take place. However, in certain circumstances it maybe appropriate for the teacher to coach from the poolside.
Classes have a maximum of 6 children per teacher. Advanced classes have 8 per teacher.
We ask parents to pay the first week of a new block of lessons. Payment can be made by cash or online bank transfer.
All children are assessed on a continual basis. The focus of each term will be to learn the skills set out in line with the National governing body award schemes.
Your child’s instructor will record their progress weekly and upload the progress online during the term.
We give out certificates and badges three times a year, in December, April and July.
Group LessonsYour payment has reserved your place just for you and if you miss a lesson for any reason we are unable to refund you.
Private lessons (1-2-1 lessons) and Adult Swimming LessonsNotice of a cancellation of a private lesson within 24 hours of the start of that lesson will result in the full fee being due or deducted from any credit balance as appropriate.
