It can often be extremely difficult to think of different activities to keep the kids entertained during half term. What better way to get them up and out of the house in the morning than our half-term intensive swimming course? The course is running from Monday 29th May - Friday 2nd June. For just £32.50, your child can come along to a swimming session at the same time each morning.

Why book on to the course?

Learning to swim is a necessary life skill, especially as Portsmouth is an Island! With over 240,000 children missing out on learning to swim due to the pandemic, there’s never been a more important time to Learn to Swim.

All of us find some swimming strokes and techniques easier to master than others and an intensive course during the school holidays is a great way to work on weaker spots and even develop whole new techniques or skills. The intense nature of the course means your child can learn new skills quickly and they are a great way to get active and have fun during the school holidays.

Who is the course for?

Ideal for first-time swimmers or those who need a little extra practice, this course will work on the skills required to pass each level and develop your child’s confidence in the pool. The course is suitable for children aged 4-16.
