Learn to Swim

At Preston Primary we strive to be innovative and try new things. Therefore we are proud to start offering Learn to Swim sessions in our school pool. These lessons are aimed at children in Puffins, Penguins and Owls classes. We feel it is important to do everything possible to keep our children water safe.


Sessions will be run by our swimming qualified staff. Lessons are half an hour after school. Maximum of five pupils per teacher. Two teachers poolside, with Lifeguard training. 


We are offering 20 places initially on a Wednesday straight after school. We will safely hand over children from the class teacher to the swim teacher. Therefore there is no need to pick up your child until 4:30pm. However we have a new covered seating area, and you are most welcome to watch your child swim.


Dates are Wednesday 1st May to Wednesday 24th July.


Sessions are all bookable online and payable in advance. We want the lessons to be value for money and have decided to trial this at £59 for 12 lessons.


If these twenty places fill up we will organise and advertise a second day after school. 


If you already buy swimming lessons elsewhere, please consider these as an extra opportunity. All proceeds will go towards the running costs of our wonderful swimming pool.
