Learn to swim



Welcome to the Learn to Swim page, home of the AquaForce Bubblefish!


Its official! Our classes are proving so popular that we are introducing an additional class on a Monday evening, and four new classes on a Saturday in order to try to keep up with demand!

Our current fee’s are £25 for a block of ten lessons for our Learn to Swim classes, and £30 for a block of ten lessons for our deep water preparation and improver’s classes.

Our learn to swim classes are normally limited to eight pupils per session in order to benefit from one of the lowest student to teacher ratio’s available locally. We endevour to have an appointed adult or supervised Aquaforce helper in the water for our learn to swim classes to assist those who may be nervous in the water.

All of our teachers are ASA qualified, and hold current enhanced CRB certificates which you are welcome to inspect. Our lessons are run using the National Plan for Teaching Swimming Awards.

Parents are welcome on poolside to monitor the progression of their children.
