Are you unable to swim but always wished you could or would you like to brush up on your technique and improve your fitness? Adult swimming lessons provide a professional and positive approach to teaching using a variety of techniques to help you achieve your goals.

Children and Families

For information about the swimming pool in the Walled Garden, including swimming lessons for children, please click here.

Children aged 9 and over may use the Cedars Pool during Open Swim and Family Swim sessions. Younger children may use the pool during these sessions if they are able to swim a length (30m) unaided, which is in line with the Swim England Stage 4 Award.

To enable families with mixed ages and abilities enjoy a swim together, the Family Swim sessions from 3.00pm to 4.30pm on Saturdays and Sundays are designated as ‘All Age Family Swim’ sessions. These sessions are open to all ages, irrespective of swimming ability.

During school holidays, All Age Family Swim Sessions also take place between 3.00-4.30pm each Wednesday.

All non-swimmers must be accompanied by a competent adult swimmer in the water, with a maximum ratio of two non-swimming children to one adult.

Children under 13 years must be accompanied by an adult swimmer at all times. Whilst in the pool, they must maintain a constant watch over the children for whom they are responsible and be in close contact with weak or non-swimmers in their care.

Junior members aged 13 years and over who are competent swimmers may use the pool unsupervised.
