Holiday Programme

January Holiday Programme

Every school holidays we run an intensive week long course (Monday to Friday) at all of our locations. What makes our programme unique is that we offer water safety and an 'aquafun' (swimming related games i.e. snorkelling, flippaball, raft building) component too, so it keeps it really fun for the children and offers a point of difference to the term time swimming. The children attend for 90mins each day and have 30mins of each swimming lessons, snorkelling and water safety (not necessarily in that order dependent on availability). There is also an option to do just a 30minute swim lesson if you prefer.
Week 1: Monday 13th January to Friday 17th January
Week 2: Monday 20th January to Friday 24th January

Swimming Lessons
Doing a daily 30min swimming lesson in the school holidays can be a great progress booster if your child has been 'stuck' at the same level for a little while and is struggling to master a skill. The repetition of daily lessons is great for reinforcement, but also the children don't have time to 'forget' between lessons!

This is also a fantastic option for anyone considering starting regular, weekly term time lessons. It can be a great intro and also a good kickstart into term time lessons.

The holiday swimming lessons are all 30mins in length and the same levels and objectives as our term time classes are used. Read about these by clicking here. This means the instructor can make an accurate recommendation of which class level your child would need in our normal term time lessons.


Our brand new Aquafun component of our holiday programme is 30minutes of fun water-based activities which will increase your child's confidence and enjoyment in the water. The activity will be different each day and is at the discretion of the instructor but some examples include: snorkelling, flippaball, raft building, ball games. Each of these activities will aim develop both water and life skills.

All equipment is provided by the swim school.

Water Safety

We place a lot of emphasis on our water safety programme during the school holidays. This is the reason 99% of parents will want their children to attend lessons - to be safer around the water. Throughout the week long course we cover a different topic each day, through a programme designed closely with Coastguard. We cover topics from how to help others in difficulty, how to help yourself, rescue equipment (including improvisations), lifejackets, swimming with clothes on and boat safety. This course is suitable for any age group and try to best match age groups to enable a similar level of understanding as best we can.
