Here at West View Leisure Centre you have access to a great range of sessions, which means that when it comes to developing your skills, teaching your child or just having fun, there’s never been a better time to take the plunge.

If you’re honing your swimming technique, or introducing your little one to the pool, you’re in great hands. We’re one of the UK’s largest providers of swimming lessons and courses, with expert guidance from qualified swimming instructors. We also work closely with the Amateur Swimming Association to provide lessons for both adults and children, from 3 years+.



Swim for Fun

We believe that swimming should be fun and exciting for all the family. That’s why you’ll find a wide range of fun swim sessions. There’s something to make swimming fun for kids of all ages – and mum and dad too.

With lots of holiday activities too there’s never been a better time to head to our pool and take a dip.

On Saturdays at 2pm we have a 50 minute fun session with floats and inflatable for ages 8 to 16 years. No need to book just turn up and enjoy the fun!


  • Adults - £3.90
  • Children - £2.25 (5 - 16 years)
  • Children - free (0 - 4 years)   

Please note children under the age of 8 years are not allowed onto the inflatable during the fun swim. Under 5s must be supervised on a 1:1 basis. 5-7 year olds must be supervised on a 1:2 basis and in the shallow end only.

Swim for Fitness

If you’re looking for a low-impact way to get fit and healthy, swimming could be the perfect choice. Whatever your fitness levels, age or level of ability, you’re sure to find a session for you in our pool.

Our Swim for Fitness sessions take place in slow, medium and fast lanes, so you can take things at your own pace. If you’re looking for tips and extra motivation, our qualified coaches are on hand to discuss your training and technique.
