Swimming Lessons

At East Leake Leisure Centre, we will be running our excellent Activ Swim programme throughout the year. All swim classes are structured so that they are in line with the Amateur Swimming Association’s (ASA) National Plan for Teaching Swimming. The National Plan for Teaching Swimming offers a clearly defined progression from adult and child to competitive and adult swimmers. The NPTS has been developed to use fun and games to take children from their first splash to full competence in the water via 10 stages. It is underpinned throughout by Long Term Athlete Development (LTAD) principles, with clear progression between each stage. Our programme goes on to include competitive swimming and rookie lifesaving which is run in conjunction with the Royal Life-Saving Society. If you are currently on our Activ Swim programme then you can  view your child’s progress by logging into the Home Portal. If you need your member record number please give us a call on 01509 852965 and we can email it out to the address on our system.


We run a no waiting list scheme for our group lessons and instead have 4 assessment days throughout the year*.  If you are interested in joining our lessons then come along to our next assessment session with your child and their swimming costume. All of our assessment days are between 9am – 11am and is on a first come first serve basis. The assessment dates for 2018 are as follows.

  • 16th March
  • 24th May (4pm – 6pm)
  • 3rd August
  • 12th October
  • 21st December

*If your child is under 5 years old then you can call the Leisure Centre between 9am – 3pm on the Thursday before the scheduled assessment date to book into a suitable class (subject to availability). If this is something you’re unable to do then you’re still welcome to come along to the assessment day.

Adult & Child – Our adult & child classes provide the perfect introduction to the water for children aged from 6 months old. Through the use of toys, games and music, children are able to become familiar with the water in a safe, comfortable environment.

121’s – We operate a waiting list for 121 swimming lessons for both adults and children. The lessons are purchased in blocks of four at a time to suite you.
