School Swimming Lessons

We believe that swimming lessons should not only teach children the key skills they need to stay safe in the water, but should also be fun and inspire children to want to swim more often.

To support your school to achieve curriculum targets, activeNewham offers a variety of options for booking swimming lessons, including weekly 30, 45 or 60 minute lesson options, as well as intensive crash courses of two or three weeks. We  are also pleased to offer training and workshops for school staff interested in supporting your children in the water.
