School Age Classes (5 Years and up)

Our school age classes go through a 7 level programme. From level one where we work on confidence and floating, to level seven where we focus on fitness and refining technique. In these classes, there will always be a level to suit your child’s ability, no matter what stage they are at. We also work on water safety techniques throughout all seven levels.

Individual Lessons

We run individual or private swimming lessons with a maximum of two children to a class. These are great for kids who just need that little bit extra to help them move on to the next level or for when they are really struggling with one of their individual goals. The best time to book these classes is during the holidays but we can also arrange them during the school term.

Holiday Programme

We run block lessons in the school holidays where you book in for a week and come in at the same time every day for five sessions. We find these lessons to be very good for giving your child an extra boost in confidence and ability and because there are consecutive lessons within the week, they don’t tend to forget what we have taught them the previous weekend. Holidays are also a really good time to book in some private lessons.
