Bluecoat Sports have a passionate belief that children should be happy and safe in the water. We aim to promote the enjoyment of aquatics as a healthy sport and as an important skill for life. We encourage a friendly, enjoyable atmosphere whilst maintaining a high professional standard of teaching.
Children’s After School Lessons
Lessons for school-age children (4½ years plus) take place after school during the week and on Saturday mornings, catering for complete beginners to the more advanced. These structured lessons are taught by our professionally trained Swim School Instructors. Pupils are continuously assessed throughout the term.
Due to a significantly high demand for our Children’s swimming lessons after school and on Saturday morning we are currently not accepting anymore new swimmers for this coming term.
We are however accepting bookings for our Intensive Swimming Courses over the Summer Holidays and these can be booked via our website or by contacting reception.
If you would like to be contacted when swimming lessons become available please complete your details in the form below.

Intensive Swimming Courses
During the school holidays, Bluecoat Sports offer week long intensive swimming courses for those wishing to brush up on their technique, learn a new skill or just try something completely different.
These courses cater for different abilities from the complete beginner to the more advanced including Front Crawl/Backstroke and Breaststroke/Butterfly stroke clinics. Flip’n’Fun and Aqua Extreme are also on offer.
A certificate of attendance will be awarded to each child on completion of the course. The courses run for half an hour for 5 days and improvements can be dramatic.
