Group lessons



With a maximum of 6 swimmers in a class and the teacher in the water in the early stages, the swimmers work through our carefully planned swimming scheme.

Our scheme of lessons follow the Swim England Learn to Swim pathway which encourages swimmers to learn a range of skills and different strokes.

Unlike many other swimming lesson providers there is no pass/fail assessment at the end of the term. Our assessments of the swimmers are done on an ongoing basis and badges are awarded when the swimmer can achieve the criteria over a number of weeks. Our assessment periods run from September- Christmas, January- Easter, and Easter- Summer.

Every child progresses at different speeds and should the swimmer not meet the criteria required for the next stage they will still be rewarded for progress and achievements made.
