Our swimming lessons take place in an environment that is always friendly, where fully qualified teachers give children the chance to gain confidence and learn to swim in safety. Working alongside the children, experienced teaching assistants give direct support and encouragement in the water. Over the years, many hundreds of children have learnt to swim at The Lido, leaving them with skills for life that extend well beyond the water.

Junior group lessons are for 4 years old and over.
(Confident under 4s by special arrangement).

Lessons run Monday – Friday for the first four weeks of the summer holidays. With classes as follows:

9.00am – Advanced
9.30am – Improvers
10.00am – Beginners
10.30am Complete Beginners
