Swimming Lessons

Teacher led learn to swim programme following the Amateur Swimming Association (ASA) learn to swim pathway. From beginners to competition standard, our lessons are based on continuous assessment to help build confidence and strength in the water, whilst also giving you a life skill. All lessons are undertaken by our fully qualified ASA teachers and participants receive badges and certificates at every stage through the scheme.


Lessons for children start from post natal with our introduction to water and run right through various pathways to competition standard. Children will work their way through the various stages building water confidence, learning new skills such as treading water and aquatic breathing and then performing and perfecting different strokes.


Aqua Fun

Are you brave enough to take on our 15m pool inflatable?  It takes skill, nerves of steel, concentration, balance, co-ordination and determination to get to the other side. You will encounter slippery slopes and obstacles along the way. To add to the fun of being in the water, why not shoot down our flume at speed and splash into the water beneath - great fun for kids and adults alike! For the younger element why not play with the wide range of mats and balls available in the small pool. Aqua Fun sessions are available at set times. 

Please see our pool timetable for more information at

Please note that for safety reasons users of the pool inflatable must be a competent swimmer and lifeguards have the discretion to restrict use.
