Swimming lessons

All lessons are taught by qualified and experienced teachers. The pool is almost infinitely adjustable with 1-6 lanes and up to 6 width-ropes across the pool, meaning that different abilities and group sizes can work together at the same time. The pool is equipped with equipment and aids necessary for younger swimming tuition such as tummy-bands and noodles. For more information on any of the lessons we provide at Trinity Arts & Leisure please browse the sections below...

» Adult lessons

The Adult swimming lessons run every Sunday morning during term-time. The lessons are run with a maximum of six adults per class and we currently have a beginners, intermediate and improver group.

We also run 1-1 and 1-2 private adult swimming lessons upon request. The classes are 30 minutes in duration and take place in a dedicated area of the pool away from other pool users during the Adults only swimming session

» Friday development squad

Friday development squad continues on from the Saturday swimming lessons. All swimmers that have completed all of the levels within the Saturday swimming lessons are invited to join the Friday development squad, as well as other swimmers with good technique of all swimming strokes. The squad is aimed at children between the ages of 8 and 18 years old and takes place every Friday evening during term-time between 6.00pm-7.00pm.

The Friday development squad is run by experienced teachers and gives all swimmers the opportunity to improve on their swimming technique and fitness. The emphasis of the squad is very much non-competitive. We believe that not all children want to join competitive swimming clubs, but instead to continue swimming at a high level in a relaxed informal environment. As well as continuing stroke development, swimmers also learn some water sports including water polo.

» Holiday intensive swimming courses

Every half-term and holiday we aim to run Holiday intensive swimming courses. These run along the same lines as our Saturday swimming lessons, but with a maximum of eight children per class. Likewise, for the younger groups we also have an assistant in the water, which brings the ratio of adults:children to 1:4.

Lessons last for 30 minutes each day and run Monday to Friday (except for those weeks where there is a Bank Holiday). Classes cost £5.50 per child per lesson for 30 minute lessons, payable in advance. We are also open for slightly extended Public swimming sessions during the holidays.

» Individual lessons

Individual lessons at Trinity Arts & Leisure swimming pool can be organised at a mutually convenient time during our normal opening hours. Anybody from the age of 3 years is able to have individual lessons.

The individual lessons are designed in such a way as to be completely flexible to the requirements of the individual having the lessons. The qualified and experienced teachers will help all swimmers to build on current skills, learn new skills or simply improve confidence in the water.

Lessons take place in reserved lanes where space permits, providing an excellent environment for the less confident swimmer. Lessons are run as 30 minute or 60 minute classes depending on the needs of the individual.

We also offer two-to-one lessons for children of similar abilities who want to have lessons together. Lessons can be paid for as individual lessons or by blocks of 10 lessons.

» Saturday swimming lessons

Lessons from 8.30am-3.10pm
We now run the 'School of Fish' lessons on a Friday after school as well! The information below still applies to the Friday lessons, but if you specifically want to join the lessons on a Friday afternoon please let us know via the enquiry form below.

The Saturday swimming lessons at Trinity Arts & Leisure are the main department of the School of Fish swimming scheme. Run every Saturday during state-school term-time the classes are available for all children between the ages of three and 13 years old. The lessons have been running since January 2005 and now have more than 300 children learning to swim every Saturday. If you would like your son or daughter to join the 'School of Fish' Saturday swimming lessons waiting list please complete the enquiry form below.

The Saturday swimming lessons follow on from the Ducklings classes, and for those children that have completed all levels of the Saturday swimming lessons we offer a Friday development squad.

All classes on a Saturday are limited to an absolute maximum of eight children, with the lower three classes also having a swimming assistant in the water. We have a five minute break between each class; time for the teachers to prepare and register the next class. This ultimately means that the children don't lose out on any lesson time. We have all of the necessary equipment and swimming aids for all lessons, and we avoid using arm-bands in lessons as they restrict movement in the arms. Instead we use tummy-bands and noodles.

At the end of each term all children are tested over two to three weeks on their ability in the water, as well as distance testing. On completion of each level, all swimmers receive a certificate and are automatically moved to the next level. When swimmers improve on previous distances we have certificates and badges available to buy for £2.70.

All swimmers must wear a swimming hat for their lesson, although they can choose to wear alternative swimming hats if they wish. There are also Friday lessons at 4.00pm-4.30pm, 4.35pm-5.05pm and 5.15pm-6.00pm.
