  • No additional charge for badges or certificates




The scheme offers a diverse range of lessons from the absolute beginner to the more confident swimmer. We are proud of our ability to offer something for everyone and our commitment to maintain the highest standards of quality.

To improve the continuity of your child’s swimming lessons we run 50 weeks per year which include the Easter and summer holidays.


The benefits of continuous swimming lessons include:

  • Swimming is taught by repetition therefore no interruption of the child’s classes throughout the year enhances the learning process.

  • A child who has swimming lessons all year round will receive 25 hours of instructed swimming.

  • To maintain the level of skills and fitness of your child.

  • The more water access your child gains throughout the year, the better water skills and development they will have. Weekly exercise also sets good habits for later in life.





During the school holidays there are also swimming crash courses (usually lasting 5 days) which are suitable for beginners aged 3+ years.  These are also a good way to introduce your child to regular swimming lessons. For details of these courses please see the Children’s School Holiday Activities section on the website.





Children who are Swim4Life students, who pay by direct debit can benefit from FREE swimming. Swim for FREE during any public swimming session (including Floats fun and Inflatable sessions) - please note that our standard terms and conditions apply, including bather ratios and under 8s must swim with an adult (max 2 under 8s per adult).
