Junior Swimming Lessons at Club Towers

We operate our own in-house swim school, providing expert tuition for all age ranges. and abilities. Our qualified instructors are there to help learners progress as quickly as their ability allows in a safe and fun environment.

Junior swimming lessons are graded by ability to ensure the best learning environment and regular feedback is provided to parents on the progress of their children, with certificates and badges awarded as milestones are achieved. We don’t pack our lessons with children (max 6 per class), so your child will receive the individual coaching and attention that they need to progress quickly.

Autumn term 2022 will commence Monday 5th September until Sunday 18th December with a break for half term Monday 24th October – Sunday 30th October.
