Swimming lessons

Swimming is a life skill, here at Stanground academy swim school we think it is essential for all children to be confident in and around water. We offer lessons for all abilities of children from the ages of 3 through to 16 years of age. Our swim school follows the Swim England learn to swim criteria, which is a national curriculum. The aim is to develop our swimmers through fun and enjoyment, not only will we teach all four strokes but also a number of other skills, which when put together, give children the ability to do other water- based sports. All of our swimming teachers attain either a Swim England level 1 or level 2 teaching qualification. We also offer adult lessons which aren't run through the learn to swim scheme but still get outstanding results.

 

Also as an added benefit of signing up to our lessons, if you are attending our swim school then children get free use of the pool whenever our public sessions are on (excluding inflatable sessions).

The days/ times, prices and rules are listed below.

Lessons are paid for in 12 week blocks, these may vary depending on the time of year. Payments are welcomed by either cash or card, there is no direct debit system in place. As we dont have a viewing gallery we offer 2 watching weeks per block where you are allowed onto the poolside to see your childs development. These are always 6 weeks in (half way through) and again on the 12th week (the last day of the block).

Our beginner sessions run for 30 minutes (Stage1 -5) and our more advanced sessions run for an hour (Stage 5+).
