ImageHeaderBox ContentBox

Learning to swim is one of the biggest milestones of your child’s early years, with most of us able to remember the first time we swam independently and the sense of achievement we felt. This is the feeling that awaits your little one as they begin their journey on our Learn 2 Swim programme.

The Active Blackpool swimming lessons run for 50 weeks a year with 2 weeks off over Christmas and New Year.

Active Blackpool offer swimming lessons for all ages and offers parents free access to the most up to date home portal system that allows you to:

  • Monitor your child's progress against the national award outcomes
  • See badges that have been awarded
  • When your child is ready to move up to the next stage you can choose the next class day time and teacher online from the comfort of your own home

Is your child ready to dive into swimming lessons? The Swim England Learn to Swim Framework (Learn to Swim Stages 1 to 7) is part of the Swim England Learn to Swim Programme. The all inclusive programme which takes the non-swimmer from his or her first splash to developing confidence and competence in the water.

Stages 1 to 7 are suitable for school-age children with no previous swimming experience. If your child has had swimming lessons before, they may join Active Blackpool Learn 2 Swim School at a higher stage. Babies and children under 5 will love our Discovery and Duckling programme.
