Children Swimming Lessons

Encouraging your child to learn to swim is one of the most important opportunities you can give them. If you get children interested in swimming when they're young there's a good chance they'll enjoy the water for the rest of their life.

Since September 2019, we have entered a partnership with Scottish Swimming and have adopted the Scottish National Swimming Framework. If your child was in lessons prior to this, please click here  for information on the new swimming levels.

The Scottish Swimming National Framework provides a clear set of tried and tested techniques and skills combined with up to date teaching methods, all of which will ensure your child's swimming ability is improved. Enrol your child in swimming lessons today and you'll also have peace of mind that they're safer when they're near water.
