    At Swim Central, we prioritise the privacy and comfort of our participants in women-only swimming classes. Here are the measures we have in place:

    • Female instructors and lifeguards: All staff supervising and teaching the lessons are also female.

  • What makes women-only swimming lessons different from mixed classes?

    Our women-only swimming lessons at Swim Central offer the same high-quality instruction and curriculum as our mixed classes. The key difference is the environment itself. Our women-only classes are taught by female instructors and lifeguarded by female staff, creating a more comfortable and private setting for some women. This allows them to focus solely on learning and improving their swimming skills without any distractions or concerns about mixed-gender environments.

  • Is there a viewing facility for use during the lesson?

    Yes, we have a comfortable viewing gallery where parents, family, and friends can relax and watch their loved ones learn and progress in the water. Younger siblings can also attend but they must be accompanied by an adult if under 12 years old.

  • How long is each swimming lesson?

    Each swimming lesson at Swim Central is 30 minutes long. This intensive session allows for focused attention from our instructors and ample time for you to practice and refine your skills. Lessons are held weekly at the same time each week during your chosen time slot, making it easy to incorporate swimming into your routine. The cost for our weekly 30-minute lessons is £55 per month.

    To make the most of your swim lesson at Swim Central, we recommend bringing a swimsuit, a large towel, goggles if required, your preferred shower supplies, and a change of clothes. We have hair dryers available in the changing rooms for use free of charge and secure lockers.

    Babies and toddlers will also need a swim diaper (reusable or disposable).

    Swim Central will provide any equipment such as floats and armbands during the lesson and we have a small store for customers to purchase any additional items they require at the front desk.

    • Babies (6 months and up): Our baby swim lessons focus on water acclimation, basic safety skills, and bonding with parents in a gentle and playful environment.
    • Children: Our children’s lessons follow a structured Learn to Swim program that teaches essential water safety skills, stroke development, and builds confidence in the water.
    • Adults: We offer adult lessons for all levels, from beginners who have never been in the water before to experienced swimmers looking to refine their technique or learn new strokes.

  • How can I cancel my lessons?

    We understand that circumstances can change. If you need to cancel your swim lessons, we require notice of one full payment cycle. This ensures that we can adjust our class schedules and offer your spot to someone on our waiting list.

    In the rare event that Swim Central needs to cancel a class due to unforeseen circumstances (e.g., pool maintenance, instructor illness), we will notify you as soon as possible via email or phone. You will have the option to reschedule your lesson for another time or receive a credit towards a future lesson. We understand the importance of consistency in learning to swim and strive to minimise any disruptions to your schedule.
