Learn to Swim at Derby Swimming pools

Our continous year-round Learn to Swim programme is designed to meet individual needs and will be suitable for you whether you are a complete beginner or looking to develop your skills and technique further. Our fully qualified aquatic instructors use the Swim England Learn to Swim pathway to allow swimmers to learn in a safe and fun environment.

The scheme provides the opportunity for every individual to progress at their own pace, achieving their own personal goals.

Learn to Swim stages 1-7 

Participants will take part in stages 1-7 of the Swim England Learn to Swim framework. This program has been designed to take non swimmers from their first splash to becoming confident and having fun in the water. Find out more about Stages 1-7 on the Swim England website here. You can also find a Parents guide to swimming lessons here.

Learn to Swim stages 8-10

Once your child has completed stages 1-7 they can then progress onto 8-10. These stages are discipline-specific and are taught to young people who want to take up competitive swimming or learn to be a rookie lifeguard. You can find out more about Stages 8-10 on the Swim England website here.
