Our Swim School has returned!
(following government COVID guidance including reduced class sizes.)

Currently our Stage One classes are full due to reduction in numbers allowed in classes under current COVID regulations.
We are currently operating a waiting list for those who would still like to register their interest for Stage One classes.

The Stamford Swim School is open to pupils of the Schools, parents and the public and offers lessons to children from the age of 4 right up to adults following the Amateur Swimming Association (ASA) Learn to Swim Framework. Lessons run after school and in the evening during weekdays as well as at weekends, throughout the majority of the year. There is also Water Polo, Competitive Swimming/Diving, and Synchronised Swimming for the higher levels once a student has reached and passed level 7.

Our dedicated ASA qualified team of teachers will provide your child with a specific progress report at the end of each term. All teachers are Enhanced DBS checked. The Stamford Swim School prides itself on the quality and wealth of experience that all of our swim teachers have. Most of our teachers hold the level 2 swim teacher certificate and others are working towards this qualification.

It has been exciting to see so many keen swimmers return to our pool. However, we are now fully booked, with a full waiting list, for those starting to learn to swim in Stages 1, 2 and 3. Because of this, we have had to suspend new enquiries until further notice.

ASA 'Learn to Swim Framework'

The Swim School lessons are run in accordance with the National Plan for Teaching Swimming (NPTS) as endorsed by the Swim England Learn to Swim Framework. The Swim England Learn to Swim Framework is about developing confident and competent swimmers through fun and enjoyment, and Learn to Swim stages 1-7 are at the heart of the Swim England Learn to Swim Programme.

To help ascertain your child’s level the below checklist can be used. However, we still highly recommend a free assessment performed by a teacher – these are every Saturday at 12pm and must be pre-booked.
