One to One Lessons

The personalised approach 
Although group swimming lessons are brilliant, they are not for everyone and we find that some young people progress better in one to one lessons. 
The same as our group lessons the one to one lessons follow the Swim England Learn to Swim framework. 
Participants that are sometimes struggling on a specific area within a stage often take the option of a few one to one lessons to help them master the technique or skill to help them progress. 
One to one's are open to swimmers of all ages, and abilities. 
Classes are 30 minutes in length availability is dependent on teacher and pool availability. All of the instructors are the same instructors that deliver our group lessons so are all Swim England or STA qualified and DBS checked. 
Although they are one to one sessions, they can be run with up to two pupils. 
One to one lessons are not included in the Junior Active membership and are available in 3 or 6 session packages.
