swimming lessons

At Tandridge Leisure Centre we aim to provide the best swimming lessons in the area, with well-structured, rewarding, affordable and fun lessons for all ages and abilities. Our swimming lessons run for 50 weeks of the year, and are paid for via a monthly direct debit. (please note our daytime classes, adult and child and pre school classes are termtime only, and are paid termly), and all our instructors are qualified and have undergone an enhanced DBS check. Swim School members (those who pay via direct debit) are entitled to unlimited swimming (subject to programme) at the centre where they have their lessons.

we are really impressed with the progress my daughter has made and her teacher Joe is excellent

We’re Back!

Our Swim School restarts on Tuesday 1st September

We have made changes to our previous swim school program to ensure our pool & staff follow safe distance guidelines while ensuring our lessons are still fun for students and a great place in which to learn an important life skill!

All swimming lessons will now follow the following guidelines:

- Instructors will teach from the pool edge

- all pupils must be able to stand in their swiming lesson area, the shallow end is 0.9 metre

- there is a one way system in place within the centre and the changing rooms and on poolside, this must be adhered to at all times.

- pupils must arrive 'beach ready'

- there will be a ten minute changover between each swimming lesson to allow for cleaning to take place

Below is a list of our revised swimming lesson days & times at Tandridge Leisure Centre. To book in a lesson or to find out more information please email please complete the enquiry form below.
