Swimming lessons

If you were previously booked on a swim lesson course in March, we will be contacting you to join lessons starting from 8th September with a reduced programme. 

For now we are only inviting swimmers over the age of 8 years, this is to reduce the number of people in the changing rooms.  We will not be running any Duckling or Stage 1 classes and only a limited number of Stage 2 classes due to the nature of support these ability groups need in the water.

Your swimming co-ordinator will email you soon with details of how to book online and when your lessons will resume. Please keep checking your emails and don't panic - we will be expanding the lessons and more will become available soon. Please be patient and bear with us.

We are not taking any new bookings or enquiries for swim lessons at present. When we are in a position to take bookings again we will publish the information on this website.

Venues, prices and booking

Courses run for 16 weeks and you can pay by Direct Debit or pay up front in full. Both options cover one lesson per week per child. Lessons last for 30 minutes.

Direct Debit

Direct Debit fees are £18.00 per month (£13.00 concessions) and are calculated by the number of swimming lessons over a 12 month period.  This consists of 52 weeks, minus a 2 week break over Christmas and any relevant bank holidays.  Centre variations may apply to prices.

*Sharks lessons last 45 minutes to help build stamina and technique and this is reflected in the price at £5 per session or £20 Direct Debit.

Pay up front

A 16 week block costs £72 or £48 concessionary rate. Centre variations may apply to prices.

How to book

You can book, pay and sign up for Direct Debit at your chosen centre or call 0151 233 5433.

You can also submit an enquiry online at your chosen centre, and a member of staff will get back to you.

We are not taking lesson bookings or enquiries until further notice. We are hoping to open new registrations soon.
