Swimming Pool: Lessons

Swim School

A new swimming scheme was launched at the Sports Centre in September 2012. Following the Amateur Swimming Association (ASA) awards scheme, lessons are based on ‘The National Plan for Teaching Swimming’.

We believe learning to swim is a necessary skill and rewarding experience. Our vision incorporates opportunities for your child to achieve lifesaving skills or progress to St Mary’s Junior Development Squad (previously Junior Masters) which is the pinnacle of our Swim School programme.

Lessons begin with Duckling Classes for parent and children from the age of 2. These are followed by seven FUNdamental Movement classes (age 4 plus) before the children move on to three FUNdamental Sports classes. At the end of the course your child will be a confident and efficient swimmer.

Our pupil to teacher ratios are designed to maximise learning, with class sizes of 10 for FUNdamental Movement, and groups of 12 for the FUNdamental Sports classes.

Swimmers are required to attend a FREE 15 minute swimming assessment in advance to ensure they are placed in the right stage class. Please contact us on This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. for further information.

Our new adult swimming course 'Swim Start' will be available from January, subject to minimum numbers. This course focusses on the basic fundamentals of swimming; water confidence building, buoyancy and balance, aquatic breathing and coordination. Private lessons are also available.

Low pupil to teacher ratios are designed to maximise learning, with class sizes of 10 for FUNdamental Movement, and groups of 18 for the FUNdamental Sports classes.

You can enrol you child at any time.  If you know the stage your child requires please check to see if we have availability. Application forms can be downloaded here and are also available at reception.

If you are not sure what stage your child requires we recommend booking a swimming assessment, conducted by one of our qualified ASA Level 2 Swimming Teachers. Swimming assessments are free of charge and can be booked on a variety of days and times. The assessment lasts approximately 15 minutes, after which we will be able to advise you on the appropriate stage for your child. Please contact us on This email address is being protected from spambots.

Ducklings: It’s never too soon to start! Our foundation programme encourages parents to share ‘confidence time’ in the water with their little ones. Suitable for children 2 - 4 years old. An enjoyable experience with a  qualified teacher learning the basic motor skills and having lots of fun as they start their learn-to-swim journey in preparation to move onto the ASA stages.

Swim England Stages 1 - 10: These stages develop basic safety awareness and stroke technique incorporating all the disciplines of competitive swimming.  See your child progress in to a competent and confident swimmer which will lead to a habitual healthy lifestyle.

Junior Development Squad: Aimed at developing the stamina, fitness and skills required to swim competitively. For those with Stage 8 and above. This session is no longer invitation only, however an assessment will need to be conducted prior to admittance to the Junior Development Squad.
