Holiday Swim Courses - St Helen's Enterprises

Holiday Swim Courses

If you are looking to continue your child’s swimming during the school holidays, our holiday swimming courses may be of great value.

Our Swimming Courses

Our range of holiday courses run for one week during school holidays (except Christmas), with lessons taking place daily from Monday to Friday for 30 minutes a day. Where a course falls on a bank holiday, courses will take place on working days only, at a reduced price.

Swimming Crash Courses (Stages 1-6)

Crash courses are ideally suited to help your child gain further confidence, swim without the use of aids, improve stroke technique and progress more quickly. They can also just be a fun way to keep your children entertained during the school holidays.

Crash Courses are available for stages 1-6. Taking part in a swimming crash course during the holidays can help your child progress quicker in their school lessons.

The intense nature of the course with daily lessons ensures children find it easier to acquire new skills, so their confidence grows day by day. This intensive course can really boost a child’s ability.

Stroke Clinics (Stages 4+)

For those who want more targeted support with specific strokes, our Stroke Clinics focus on Breaststroke and Butterfly for stages 4+.

Swim Development (Stages 7-10)

Swim Development is an hour-long session aimed at children in stages 7-10, to develop the necessary aquatic skills required to progress to the higher stages.

It also allows swimmers the time to complete their distance swims and gain a distance award.

Which level do I need?

Don’t worry if you haven’t swum for a while or are unsure as to which level might best suit your child. For more information on the programme and stage criteria, please read our Learning to Swim leaflet.


Swimming courses for upcoming holiday times will be announced soon. Holiday dates, as well as our extended opening times, can be found on our opening hours page.
