Don’t stop doing what you love.

Just because the term-time swimming lessons have stopped, it doesn’t mean you have to. We offer 5-day crash courses through the holidays for swimmers of all abilities. So whether you’re looking to continue practicing your front-crawl, or if you’re brand new to swimming, our crash courses are for you.

Why a crash course?

Crash courses are 30-minute group lessons that run for 5 consecutive days (excluding bank holidays), during the school holidays. They are beneficial if general practice is required to improve stamina or if a child has just moved up to a new class, they give a preview of the new skills which will be taught in that level.

Many also use these as a taster for our classes and as a way to assess their child’s ability before enrolling onto weekly lessons with us. Crash courses enable children to maintain the skills they have already learned during term time.

Swim levels

So that we can run classes that are pitched at the right level for all members of the group, we make sure swimmers find the appropriate swim level before they begin their first class.

If you already swim with us, we’ll have a good idea which class would be suitable for your child’s needs. However, if you’re brand new to the centre, please take a look at our group lessons page here to find your swimming level. This provides an initial assessment of your child’s abilities. If you have any questions, concerns or queries, please email us on or give us a call on 01494 433 531.
