We publish on our website the date for open bookings towards the end of each term (March, July, December) and bookings are taken on a first come first serve basis. For more information please contact us via email on [email protected] Do you do one to ones for non-disabled people? Unfortunately no, these are for disabled people only. Do you offer a trial session? Due to running our lessons at almost full capacity we are unable to offer trial lessons. My child can swim but they aren't currently in a Stage, how do I know which Stage to book them in for? We can arrange an assessment to see which stage would be most suitable for them. Please contact the Swimschool office to arrange this.
