All of our courses follow the Swim England (formerly ASA) 'Learn to Swim' programme, to ensure quality and consistency, and are taught by Swim England qualified teachers. Children are encouraged to work towards achieving nationally recognised Swim England awards, from Stages 1 – 7 and then on to Stage 8, Gold & Honours. These more advanced courses will challenge participants and help hone technique, build stamina and improve technical aspects such as starts and turns. The Swim School Co-ordinator is available to answer any questions that you may have. To email her, please click here.
In this scheme pupils are challenged to achieve specific targets relating to timed and endurance swims, smooth efficient strokes and a wide range of water skills. Skills include water entry, sculling, surface dives and object retrieval, treading water and in-water somersaults. Timed and endurance swims range from 100m to 800m.
Our premium courses offer a smaller class size and our most experienced teachers, meaning that your child will get more attention each session, and will likely progress faster through the Swim England Stages. These courses are perfect at helping your child improve quickly if their progress has begun to plateau or if they need particular attention on a specific area of stroke technique.
