    Kimbolton Swimming Academy Lessons

    Children's Group Lessons

    'Swimming is the only sport which can save your child's life' - Swim England

    Drowning remains one of the most common causes of accidental death in children, so being able to swim is one of life's essential skills. Learning to swim is a life skill once learnt is not forgotten and it is open to people of all ages.   

    Kimbolton Swimming Academy offers a safe, friendly and fun environment in which to learn to swim. Our children's Early Years' group lessons and Junior group lessons have a low ratio of swimmers per class and are taught by ASA Level 2 qualified teachers. The teacher usually remains in the water for low ability groups, while all lessons are supervised by qualified RLSS lifeguards or teachers holding a life saving qualification.  Children taking part in our lesson scheme are awarded certificates as they progress through the class levels.

    Parents are only allowed to view the first and final lesson to enable the children to concentrate better (see Term Dates below).

    You are welcome to visit the pool with your children during our public swimming sessions and the staff on duty can answer any concerns/questions about our lesson scheme.

    The Swimming Pool operates a waiting list for classes that are fully subscribed or if your child is under 4 years old. Please click here to complete form.  

    For children over 4 years of age joining our scheme we offer a 'Free' water test to access their ability. We recommend the test to children wishing to join our lessons from another school/pool.

    Our lessons are spread into three courses mirroring school term times: Spring, Summer and Autumn.

    Your child can join a lesson at any point throughout the term.  If your child joins us part way through the term you will pay for the remaining weeks of the term. Should our lessons be full, we operate a waiting list and can keep you informed as to when bookings re-open. To be added to our waiting list please either call or pop into the Pool office, or fill in out enquiry form here
