Our swimming programme starts with our parent and child lessons where babies from the age of 3 months are introduced to the water through fun games and songs. Weekly lessons see parents / carers enjoy quality time with the children in the water, where confidence quickly grows.

Once enrolled onto this swimming programme, the Discovery Duckling, Duckling and Puffin Award programme is followed.

Swim Lesson Stages

We encourage children to start enjoying time in the water as young as possible. From the age of 3 years, children can begin the Learn to Swim Framework in Stage 1 daytime lessons and will enjoy lessons with our instructors without a parent being in the water with them. From the age of 4 years onwards, stages 2-10 are available as evening lessons.

That is dependent on age and capability. You will be asked questions on joining the swimming lessons, so we can make sure your child is in the best class for their needs. Your child will be preliminarily put into a class and will be assessed upon the first couple of sessions to establish whether they stay or move from that class. This process allows your child to be in the best class suited to their abilities.

Please come prepared and ready for your lessons, with your:

  • Lincs Inspire card
  • Swimming cap
  • Goggles – not essential but highly recommended
  • Towel
  • Progress card booklet
  • £1 for lockers

We advise against any jewellery (this includes smart watches) in the swimming pool.

We please ask that any jewellery that could pose a catch hazard be removed or covered.

We sell costumes, goggles, swim caps and small towels at the reception.

That all depends on the child, every child is different. Each stage has a list of criteria that your child will need to hit at least three times in order for them to move up stages. Every child’s progression and abilities are different which means some children may be moved quicker or slower than others.

Each class is scheduled for 30 minutes, with no more than 5 minutes at the start of the lesson for administration and taking a register.

Please check our availability.


We operate a direct debit payment, debited on the 1st of every month.

Teachers are all trained to Swim England Level 2 and undergo frequent skills update and refresher courses.

Lincs Inspire is a charitable trust placing your health at the heart of our services.
