Intensive Swimming Lessons - Summer 2021

We are pleased to announce that we will be running crash course lessons for all stages from Ducklings (3 ½ years) and Stage 1 through to Stage 7 (5 years +) over the Summer Holidays. These intensive lessons will run Monday-Friday for 30 minutes per day and are available at all Centres.
Due to COVID we will still be running with the following changes to how the lessons will run below until further notice. These procedures will be reviewed regularly, and changes made as and when required.
Current changes to swimming lessons are:

  • No more than 9 swimmers in each swimming lesson.
  • The levels of chlorine in swimming pool water have been adjusted to meet current industry guidance. According to the scientific literature, there is no increased risk of contracting COVID-19 from swimming in chlorinated pools, and pool operators adhering to previously set guidelines will control risk from waterborne COVID-19.
  • All lessons will be instructed from poolside.
  • During lessons, swimming instructors will ensure other swimmers at a safe distance at all times.
  • All lessons will be 30 minutes
  • All swimming teaching stations and equipment cleaned between each lesson.
  • Only one class will be using the changing room at one time.
  • An attendant will be available at all times to keep the changing area clean and to ensure hygiene rules are followed.
  • All swim school participants should arrive ‘beach ready’ with their swimming attire under their clothes, showering at home.
  • Swimming instructors will not assist pupils with hats and goggles, so please ensure these are in place ready.
  • All customers should arrive 10 minutes before the lesson, ready to start on time. Any latecomers will be denied entry to the swimming lesson.
  • No lockers will be available, and belongings must be taken to a designated bag drop off point poolside.
  • One way system will be in place on poolside and around the building; signs are displayed for guidance.
  • If using the showers, swimmers must shower in their swimwear and take no longer than 2 minutes. Where possible, showering at home is advised.
  • Customers should not be in the changing rooms for any longer than 5 to 10 minutes.
  • Whilst the lessons are taking place there may be no viewing area at Atherton Leisure Centre and Newham Leisure Centre and parents may need to wait outside the centre. This will depend on government and local authority guidance. The spectator area at East Ham Leisure Centre will be be available. 

If a child is displaying any signs or symptoms of COVID-19, they must stay at home and follow Government Guidelines. 

If you require any further information or would like to know the spaces we have available to restart your child's lessons, please contact  with your child's ACT number or their full name and a contact number. Please note that emails will be prioritised on a first-come-first-served basis.
