Swimming lessons

Take a look at our programme of swimming lesson sessions to find a session to suit you.

Octopus 1 through to Shark 3!

If you're just beginning your adventure in swimming, or you just want to develop your skills, we have a programme that will suit you. Just call the centre to request a swim assessment, and we'll advise you on which level you'll be perfectly placed in.


At the age of two and half years your children can learn to swim with our instructors in a fun environment, where they can get used to the water-based lesson environment without their parents. They will be taught how to position themselves in the water and how to transport themselves from one side to another, with the added enjoyment of singing songs and playing fun games.

Friday night junior stroke improvement

This session is designed as a drop-in session for children who want to develop their stamina and strokes. The session has use of the whole pool, and is used lengthways to help develop the stamina of its students. An ideal session to complete distance badges.

  • Day and times: Friday 6pm - 7pm
  • Cost: £4.50 per session
