Time to Swim

Learn to Swim

Our Learn to Swim programme takes the non-swimmer from their first splash, right through to developing confidence and competence in the water. The programme is ‘all-inclusive’ and teaches the fundamental movement skills needed to swim. It follows the Amateur Swimming Association (ASA) National Plan for Teaching Swimming (NPTS). All members of our Learn to Swim programme are also eligible for free public swimming!

  • Discovery Ducklings (4 months - 2 years)
  • Ducklings (2 years - 3 years)

Swimming lesson payments

Unfortunately we are unable to accept online payments via PayPal or standing orders as we don't currently support these methods of payment.
Payment can still be made via the Leisure Centre and we will be looking at introducing other payment options in the near future. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.
