In line with national restrictions, our leisure centres are currently closed. We look forward to seeing you as soon as we are able to reopen.
We believe that everyone should learn to swim and that it should be fun.
Our Ducklings programme offers swimming lessons for children ages three and four, which follow the ASA Learn to Swim Framework giving them everything they need to feel comfortable and confident in the water.
Our Swim school uses the ASA Learn to Swim Pathway a nationally recognised scheme, which will help your child work towards everything they need to be skilled and confident in the water.
Our qualified instructors will boost your child’s confidence and motivate them through every stage of their Learn to Swim journey.
Each stage has a different aim and set of skills that your child will develop through their 30-minute weekly lessons. As your child improves and becomes more confident, they will move up to the next stage.
Our lessons run continually throughout the year and even better when you apply, you'll be able to enjoy a host of amazing benefits:
