Designed from the outset with the intention of providing a warm, safe environment for children learning to swim, our purpose built pool has a flat floor and is maintained at a higher temperature than most. The in-pool staircase makes it easy to get in and out of the water, especially important if you are carrying your child. No struggling to climb ladders here!
All of our swimming teachers are qualified to ASA or STA standards, we do not use unqualified teaching assistants.
You are welcome to use our WiFi whilst you are at the pool. The current password is displayed on the noticeboard.
We use Ultra-Violet light to sterilise the water and this means we can drastically reduce Chlorine levels yet still maintain excellent pool hygiene.
We are proud to display the results of our regular water quality tests by a certified independent laboratory on our noticeboard.
Our excellent teachers, comfortable surroundings and small class sizes ensure your child will make rapid progress in learning to swim. Our Swim School terms are broadly in line with the L.E.A. school timetable and we offer classes every day of the week, including weekends. The main categories are shown below but these are further divided so we can ensure the lessons are best suited to your child's ability level. Please contact us to discuss and arrange your free assessment lesson.
These classes introduce your child to the water while having the security of a parent nearby. They are carefully structured, full of fun activities and songs.

Our Crash Courses are a good way of boosting swimming skills and increasing confidence around water. They are very popular and booking is essential so please contact us well before the course is due to start.
These courses are suitable for both beginners and improvers with the children being divided into age and abilty appropriate classes. Children from the age of three are welcome.
We run intensive Crash Courses during the February and May half terms, the Easter break and the summer holidays.
The aim of the courses is to build and improve water confidence in all age groups, to give beginners an introduction to water safety and structured lessons and to develop the stroke technique of those already swimming.

Listed below are some of the questions we are asked most often. If you have any other queries please get in touch.
We generally recommend children should be at least eight weeks old. Even at this young age they will feel comfortable in our warm water.
Our swim school is fully equipped with a wide range of teaching aids so you do not need to bring any floats, armbands or such like. All you need to provide is swimwear, a towel and a swim nappy (where appropriate. We have various sized nappies for sale should you forget to bring one with you).
We do not insist on hats although we do ask that long hair is tied up or back. If you prefer to wear a swim hat you can and we have them for sale at a very reasonable price. Similarly, we do not require children to wear goggles but most of the time they can if they so wish. There may be occasions when we ask them to remove their goggles for certain activities. We have a choice of high quality goggles for sale.
Of course! There are seats at the end of the pool.
Sorry, but in line with our Child Protection policy we DO NOT allow photography of any kind without our express permission. Please speak to us if you wish to photograph or video your child in the water and we will do our best to accomodate your request.
No, our pool is lovely and warm so your baby will be perfectly comfortable in just regular swimwear.
