St Hugh's Swim School

The 20m indoor swimming pool at St Hugh's is heated to 29 degrees Celsius and is a superb modern facility, with changing rooms, pool-side seating, and a viewing gallery.  Our Swim School offers lessons across a wide range of ability levels, delivered by experienced and qualified swim teachers.

An additional benefit of the St Hugh's Swim School is small group sizes - with a maximum of 6 children per teacher.  This enables us to observe, track progress and encourage each child on a more individual basis, promoting greater water confidence and more rapid improvement.

St Hugh's Swim School is a registered member of Swim England and lessons are delivered in accordance with the Swim England (ASA) proficiency criteria. The links below explain more about each level.

Please note Little Fishes is not a Swim England award, but an in-house St Hugh's Swim School award aimed at children aged 3 years and older, and is a stepping stone to Swim England stage 1 award.
