We offer a range of classes from Parent and Baby (6 months old onwards) to Swim Club level. Our lessons are run during the day for younger children and after school and Sunday morning for older children. Members and non-members are welcome. Term dates are based on Hertfordshire’s school term.

To ensure your child gets the best possible tuition from our expert instructors, class numbers are limited to the following:

  • Parent & Baby / child - Maximum of 12 pupils in a class
  • Starters (Age 3 Years and older) - Maximum of 4 pupils in a class
  • Stage 1-4 - Maximum of 6 pupils in a class
  • Stage 5-9- Maximum of 8 pupils in a class

We provide towels for our members, a comfortable viewing area and all swimmers are welcome to use our on-site café. Non-members will need to leave a small deposit at reception to borrow a locker key. We ask that all swimmers wear a swimming hat in the pool and all children under 3 years old wear an aqua nappy.
