Intensive Swimming Lessons

Skill for life this school holiday!

Next Course:  Monday 1st August – 27th August

Aquaschool run weekly Intensive courses during the School Holidays. These are 5 day courses, with one lesson per day – lessons are approx. 20-25 minutes long, in a 30 minute time-slot.

These sessions are taught by our highly qualified instructors and we normally run Stage 1 and Stage 2 lessons. During the summer holidays we occasionally run Stage 3 lessons, a Breaststroke clinic and a Stage 1 Beginner lesson for older children, age 8+.

The beginner class for the older children, still follows the same criteria but it is in slightly deeper water and helps older children who may lack confidence in the water.
