If you are interested in booking your children into swimming lessons at Huish Leisure you can call us to reserve a space today. Your child will be added to the waiting list and a member of staff will be in touch to book your lesson.


Huish Leisure will be following the Swim England Learn to Swim Programme which is the leading national teaching syllabus for delivering safe, inclusive and effective swimming lessons for all ages.

Our Swimming Instructors will be using the following framework;

Pre-School (Duckling) – This Framework is aimed at babies and toddlers aged between 0-5 years old. It helps to build the foundation for a lifelong love of water. 

Learn to Swim (Stages 1-7) – This Framework is made up of the seven stages of learning to swim, which develop confident and able swimmers using fun and enjoyment to engage learners.

The 25 metre indoor swimming pool will provide the Primary School students, Academy students and the local community with swimming all year round.

The swimming pool will be supervised by RLSS qualified lifeguards, providing a safe environment.

For pool amendments and Bank Holiday opening times please see the ‘What’s Going On’ board in Reception, visit our website or follow us on Twitter or Facebook for the latest updates.
