We want your family to have a great time every time you come to swim with us. That’s why, dependent on age, children can swim in our pools without the supervision of a parent or guardian – but only after they have completed a NStars swim test with a member of our qualified swim team.
NStars swim test: This assessment must be completed by a qualified swim instructor or lifeguard. Once your child has passed the test, they will be issued the relevant coloured band to wear in the pool.
Coloured bands: your child must always wear their band when using the pool. Coloured bands are required to be worn by children on each visit to identify their age group and access to the gym. Replacement bands can be purchased from reception for 50p.
*Only available at selected facilities which have a separate children's pool. No additional cost.

Swimming is one of the most important life skills – and you’re never too young to start! We’re proud to partner
with Water Babies, the world’s number one baby swimming school. Working closely with Swim England, the programme
helps develop babies’ natural instincts and works towards swimming with confidence, at their own pace.
Available at selected Nuffield Health Fitness and Wellbeing Centres*, many children attending Water Babies go on to
develop their swimming skills with the Nuffield Health Learn to Swim programme.
