Holiday Swimming lessons

Our intensive swimming lessons run over school holidays and are a great way to improve skills, meet new friends and work with different teachers.

You will see a difference in your child’s swimming over a short period of time.

The short interval between sessions contributes to the retention and refinement of skills and the overall development of your child’s swimming.

A 45 minute lesson every day, for five days, works wonders for children’s confidence, skills and ability.

These lessons are suitable for children age 5 years old upwards.

We will be running Swim Skill 1A, 1B, 2, 3 and 4 classes during school holidays.

There is also the possibility for swimmers to join one of Kilgraston’s mini camps after their lesson for a top up fee.

Costs for the Monday to Friday Intensive swimming lessons is £50 and must be paid when booking.

Please be aware there are limited places available and booking is recommended early.

If you would like to book your child into our Monday to Friday intensive swimming lessons this summer, please email swimming@kilgraston.com for further details.
