Swimming Lessons

Benfield Swim School offers swimming lessons 5 days a week for swimmers 4 years and over.

Lessons run Mon – Thu; 4.30 – 6.00pm and Sat; 9.00 – 3.00pm.

Lessons are 30 minutes in duration and are paid for in blocks of between 11 and 14 weeks depending on school terms.  Swimmers work towards the National Plan for Teaching Swimming and are assessed at the end of each term.

We currently have a waiting list for our lessons but by completing the waiting list form below we can add your child’s details onto our waiting list and we will contact you about anything that is suitable for your child.

During half terms and holidays we also run fun sessions, crash courses, intensive stroke lessons, diving lessons and much more.
