Here is everything you need to know about the return of our swimming lessons and diving lessons. 

We’re so excited to start welcoming pupils back to Swim School & Dive School! As your safety is of upmost importance to us, we have made a number of changes in line with Government and National Governing Body guidance, along with enhanced hygiene measures, to ensure your visits are as safe as possible.

Unfortunately there are some types of lessons that are unable to return yet. Such as baby, pre school and adult swimming lessons.

We have also been working hard whilst we have been closed to make some additional exciting changes to how our lessons are delivered and the way our classes are structured. These changes allow for our lessons to be as fun and more progressive than ever before and your journey with us far easier.

Diving Classes:

We have removed a number of classes, please ensure you check your home portal or visit us within the venue to check class times and make any changes you need.

Swimming Classes: 

A new delivery model that ensures our lessons are safe, progressive and fun for all children taking part. A reduced number of different classes, pupils will be ability grouped and taught by a team of teachers to ensure progression whilst making your journey with us far simpler. Pupils achieving awards won’t mean having to change times or days on a regular basis!
