Welcome to the Swim School at Bramcote and Kimberley Leisure Centre. Swimming is an essential life skill so we recognise the importance of all children developing water confidence and learning to swim. Our Swim School offers a wide variety of swimming lessons for all ages and abilities. We work in partnership with Swim England, the National Governing body for swimming.
We provide a high standard of quality swimming lessons, focusing on stroke technique and skill development. As a result we have received recognition for our high standards by achieving the Swim 21 accreditation. All our swimming lessons are delivered by highly qualified, skilled and committed swim instructors.
Our swimming lessons follow the Swim England national teaching plan to enable us to provide a structured framework.
As a progressive swim school, we recognise it is important to offer long term athlete development for all children. Therefore in addition to our standard swimming lessons, we also offer a range of other pool based activities. These include; Mini Polo, Synchronised Swimming, Diving and Lifesaving. Furthermore these additional water activities provide an alternative to our swimmers in a fun and sometimes competitive environment.
- Adult & Baby/Child lessons – for 0 to 4 years (adult in the water)
- Foundation and Stage Awards lessons (1-10) – for 4 years and over
- Over 8 years and Teens lessons – for 8 years and over
- Aquatics Sports Academy – Flip ‘N’ Fun Diving, Mini Polo, Rookie Lifesaving and Synchronised Swimming
- One-to-One lessons
- Inclusion lessons
- Adult Beginners and Improvers lessons
We recognise that children progress at their own pace. Therefore our Learn to Swim Programme allows children to be continuously assessed each week by the instructors rather than set times throughout the year. As a result children are continually learning so are moving up through the swim stages.
Our classes also run continually throughout the year so we can ensure progressive development.
Swim School lets each parent log onto a ‘home portal’ to enable them to view the child’s progress each week. This allows the parent to choose the day and time for their child’s lessons when they’re ready to progress to the next stage.
