It’s never too late to learn how to swim! From our youngest toddler members to the young at heart, the Pelican Centre’s Learn to Swim programme offers swimming lessons for every level and ability.

Whether you’re a new learner, looking to improve your technique or returning to swimming after a break, our professional coaches and experienced teachers will help you to gain confidence and new skills in the water.

Learn to Swim swimming lessons

Minnows (U3s) and Squid Squad (3-4 year olds) are our first structured lessons, following the Duckling swimming scheme.

These fun lessons introduce children to water through play, gaining confidence and a love of aquatics right from the start. Children start to move by themselves in the pool, learning how to float, going underwater and taking their first strokes.

Stages 1-7 follow the National Plan for Teaching Swimming, guiding swimmers through the FUNdamental movement skills for swimming.

School holiday intensive swimming lessons

Intensive junior swimming lessons over school holidays help you to really kick on through the Learn to Swim programme.

Choose from 5-day group lessons, stroke workshops or more intensive 1-2-1 personal lessons from our professional swim coaches. Pre-booking and payment is required to secure your place, and book early as places are limited!
