 Swimmer's Progress

We are a Swim England Accredited Swim School. We work towards Duckling, Stages 1 - 7 of the Swim England Learn to Swim Pathway (LTSP), followed by Stages 8 - 10 for multi aquatic disciplines. Many other awards are available for Synchronised Swimming, Rookie Lifeguard and Challenge Awards. Distance sessions are held for those working towards 20m - 2000m.

At the end of each term, progress reports are given. Our lessons are small in order to enhance the swimming experience of every individual and allows each swimmer to progress at their own pace.

Badges and certificates are available to purchase for awards achieved.

Viewing

Due to the lack of space around the pool, we have an exterior viewing area

You are able to view the swimmers from the exterior viewing area through the windows. To access this viewing area go back out the main entrance and turn right towards the tennis courts, continue around the building and you will see the window on your right hand side.  If you need further guidance please see ABC staff at the pool and they will point you in the right direction.

Pool Access 

Access to the pool is via the changing rooms only

To keep the floors clean, please remove shoes before going into the changing rooms and poolside. We provide blue overshoes for a small fee. Please leave buggies and scooters in the corridor or in the entrance lobby.
