Summer Intensive Lessons

Our intensive lessons are the perfect opportunity to build your child’s confidence and skills in the water during the holidays.

Our teachers are dedicated to producing strong, confident swimmers using the Swim England Learn to Swim pathway. The University of Birmingham Sport have been delivering swimming lessons for many years, seeing children progress from complete beginners to as far as national level swimmers.

Summer intensive lessons will run for five day blocks starting on Monday 29 July, Monday 5 August and Monday 12 August, please find the times and prices below.

Please read the Parent/Guardian information document before completing the sign up form.

Summer Intensive Swimming Lessons are now full. Intensive lessons will be available again in Easter 2020.
