Lee Chapel is our main private exclusive pool location. Our beautiful 25m x 10m pool with depth of 0.9m – 1.5m for deep water practice.
We have two sets of communal use changing rooms at our Lee Chapel pool location, each having fifteen private changing cubicles for use. We are unable to provide baby changing facilities at any of our Primary School locations. Please read the pool information and H&S Rules below to ensure that our facilities meet your expectations and requirements before booking your classes.
We offer classes for all ages and abilities.
For our beginner swimmers an adult is required in the water to support their own child until they have mastered their face & eyes in, breath control and can float unaided. By having this “one to one” parent support, it means they receive 100 percent practice time during their 30 minute lesson. More practice means faster progress.
We do not use arm bands of discs during our lessons. Children need to learn and feel their own buoyancy in the water.
Having Parent Support Classes for all beginner swimmers allows parents and children to learn together, giving opportunity during lessons to work on a 1-1 basis with their own child, meaning 100 practice time. This could be by practicing as a group or doing separate practice where needed during the group class.
It is best to learn to swim without goggles. Please do not bring them to class for your beginner swimmers.
Once “eyes in” has been mastered we do allow goggles to be worn but during every class ALL children will be asked to remove them to reinforce that they “can do it” without them. We won’t be wearing goggles if we unexpectedly fall in!
Our Teachers instruct all lessons from the poolside to ensure they have an overview of the whole class, this also ensures that the correct practice is being performed safely at all times.
