Learn to Swim
Our learn to swim lessons teach essential aquatic flotation and movement skills, typically from the ages of 4 to 6. We follow the Swim England Learn to Swim programme, the leading national teaching syllabus for delivering safe, inclusive and effective swimming lessons for all ages.
The structured and progressive content ensures children enjoy learning while progressing their confidence and skill in the water. We recognise our children's progress by awarding them Swim England badges and certificates, which helps motivate and support them on their journey.

Bristol North Swimming Club prioritises the welfare of all its members and its SwimMark accreditation is a testament to our high standards of safeguarding.
We have a very experienced team and keep class sizes small, with the younger swimmers having 2 teachers/assistants per class of 8. All of our teachers hold qualified Swim England Teaching Level 1 or Level 2 qualifications and our assistants are working towards teaching or coaching qualifications.
We hold our lessons at Filton Leisure Centre on Sunday afternoons during term time. For full details, see our current timetable. We charge a low fee per lesson (payment for a term's worth of lessons is required).
We would be delighted to help your child become a confident swimmer for life!
