Offers fun and engaging swimming lessons for children from aged 4 years and up!  

We follow Swim England's Learn to Swim (Stages 1-7) and our small class sizes mean we can give your child all the encouragement and specialised coaching that is right for them.  

Our swim teachers are fully qualified, ASA Accredited and DBS checked. Your child will learn competence and confidence, safe swimming and how to have a lot of fun in the water.

Our courses follow the Gloucestershire's school term dates, with breaks for half terms, Christmas and Easter.  Lessons are 30 minutes long and allocation time is dependent on your child’s ability.

Classes are £9 per half an hour and payable by direct debit. Unfortunately we are unable to refund missed swimming lessons however, if a serious illness or condition arises, we will review this on an individual basis.

All our children are assessed with the opportunity to achieve an award as each stage is completed.

Our instructors use iPads to assess the children during their lessons, regularly updating information so that they can report back to parents at the end of each course. Children can move between stages at any point when the teacher assessment shows their ability has reached the required stage.

Additional crash courses are available in the half terms, Easter & summer holidays. These sessions provide a focused boost to the weekly lessons and can often speed up a swimmer’s progress.
