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.

Duckling Awards

Duckling Awards are designed to help toddlers learn to enjoy swimming and have fun in the water. Parents/guardians must be in the water for these lessons. 

There will be 3-12 months, 12 months + and Pre-school (3-4 years) lessons available.

With Duckling Awards your child can work towards four different colourful Awards. Each Award has its own certificate and badge.

Duckling 1 will see children start to move by themselves in the water.

By Duckling 4 they will be jumping in, going underwater, floating and swimming five metres without support.
