Children's Swimming

Follow the ASA Learn to Swim Pathway and support your child to develop their swimming technique and awareness of water safety and personal survival.

Tutor: Jill Henderson - ASA Level 2 Swimming Coach.

Our 'Guide to the ASA Learn to Swim Pathway at Astley' explains our swimming groups so you can enrol your child for a suitable session. Our friendly qualified swimming teachers will also assess your child’s skills so that they can improve at the rate that’s best for them. We offer swimming lessons to children aged 5 and above or when they start reception.
