Wave Swim School continues throughout the year including school holidays, only stopping for two weeks during the Christmas break.

Manage Lessons Online

Wave Swim School gives you the ability to manage your child’s lessons online, meaning you don’t need to queue to see the teacher or queue to change their lessons as they progress. Using one simple login, you can manage all your children on swimming lessons from the comfort of your own home, or on the move via your smart phone. If you have more than one child on lessons with us, you will be able to manage them all from one login. All progress is logged via a poolside tablet and is accessible as a Record of Achievement. 

Once your child is ready to move up to the next level, you will receive an email alert and you can move them yourself to an available slot to suit you. The system will only show you spaces that are available so you are assured a place for the following week.

Term Length & Payment Options

Wave Swim School teaches swimming for 50 weeks of the year and offers continuous assessment, meaning you child can progress at their pace.

Sign up by monthly direct debit and not only will you pay nothing on the day, but your child will enjoy 50 swimming lessons for the price of 45, meaning you get 5 lessons for FREE!Your child will also benefit from FREE swimming outside of lessons, so they can make a splash at any time!

You will be able to choose to spread the cost of lessons by paying monthly by direct debit or pay in blocks of 15 weeks.

Children on a current course paid for by direct debit will be entitled to free swimming all year on production of a valid Swim School Membership Card. There is no need for the child to have an accompanying full paying adult to qualify for this benefit, although our normal swimming pool admission policy will still apply. 

For example: 

  • A child under 8 years – the child will benefit from free swimming but must be accompanied by a responsible adult 
  • A child over 8 years – can swim on their own, but must observe our swimming pool admission policy (available from reception at our swimming pools or on our website)
