Swimming Lessons

Water play ducks

junior intensive swimming lessons:

The Lido’s junior intensive swimming lessons take place in an environment which is always friendly, combining excellent teaching practice with play and water confidence. Parents and siblings are welcomed on poolside during lessons.

Our swim teachers work alongside experienced teaching assistants who offer direct support and encouragement in the water.

Junior intensive group lessons are for 3 years of age and over ( for under 3s please ask about a separate 1:1 lesson)

Summer lessons run for the first three weeks of the summer holidays , w/c 25 July, 1 August and 8 August, as follows:
(taught in small groups of 4) at 9.45am, 10.15am and 10.45am;
(in a class of no more than 8) at 11.15am;
(in a class of no more than 8) at 11.45am.

Beginners are NPTS stages 1-3 the aims are to learn water skills, increase confidence and start to swim without buoyancy aids.
Improvers are typically NPTS stages 4-5; the aims are to increase distance travelled and improve competency in three strokes.
Advanced learners are at NPTS stage 6 and above and the aim is to practice and improve stroke technique, style and stamina.

All lessons are sold by the week Monday - Friday. If your child cannot attend all week, you may still book, but unfortunately we are unable to offer a reduced price.

If you are not sure which class your child should be in, please contact us and we’ll be happy to discuss their needs. We can also offer 1:1 lessons at certain times during these weeks; again please contact us with your requirements.

The café and changing rooms will be open throughout our lessons timetable. There is no need to rush off after your lesson and we welcome you to stay and enjoy some refreshments, and relax on the lawn.
