Swim School

Swimming lessons at Stoke Mandeville Stadium bring wonderful opportunities for your children to have fun while developing a wide range of skills, which result in a competent, confident and safe swimmer.

swim school will be stopping for Christmas as of Tuesday the 20th December with Monday the 19th being the last session and then back as of Tuesday the 3rd January. All customers on a Direct Debit are paying for 50 weeks of the year so no need for a refund, all customers paying in blocks of 16, the sessions will simply roll over to the following week.


“I would like to offer my sincere thanks to your swimming instructor Jackie. My daughter has gross and fine motor skills difficulties. This means she is uncoordinated and struggles to do things most children of her age can. When she first started in Jackie’s class she was flapping around like a fish on dry land!!. Jackie realised she had issues and dealt with her accordingly. Seeing her today, in her new level 3 class, its hard to believe I’m watching the same child. Jackie held her back in 2 until she was convinced Darcey could handle level 3. I totally agreed with her decision and I’m sure it’s the reason Darcey is so confident and progressing well. I can\’t thank her enough and hope you realise what an asset she is to the Swim Team.

I have 3 children enrolled in Swim School and all of them love their lessons and their instructors. I am sure it’s because they are allowed to progress at their own pace and not ‘rushed’ through the stages.

Keep up the good work.”

We currently offer a range of swimming lessons following the ASA’s National Plan for Teaching Swimming. We take children from 6 months to 16 years, complete beginners to competitive swimmers. We offer a range of classes across a variety times of the week to suit all lifestyles. Once your child is a confident swimmer we can also offer interesting and fun courses in Water Polo, Diving and Synchronised Swimming.

Many of our Swim School members are already enjoying the benefits of the Learn 2 Home Portal which include access to progress reports online and the ability to choose a new class when a pupil has reach the required standard to move up to a new Stage.
