Learn to Swim is the national syllabus produced by Swim England to assist and support the delivery of swimming lessons.
Our swimming lessons are led by our Swim England qualified swimming teachers and there is a maximum of 10 swimmers per class. We will provide a variety of different fun-based activities to help swimmers learn new skills and will provide feedback and instruction to help each individual swimmer develop and improve.
We encourage each and every child to learn at their own pace. Some children are more confident in the water and could therefore progress faster. Other children may take a little longer to build technique but can quite often become stronger, more proficient swimmers as they progress.
