Captain Awesome’s summer programme is an intensive, 2-week programme offering weekday lessons, during the summer months. This allows participants to complete a full term’s worth of lessons in just 2 weeks! Our programme has been developed in partnership with the relevant schools to provide swimming lessons to all ages and abilities, including adults, squads and persons with disabilities. This partnership supports participating schools with the ongoing costs associated with the running of a school pool, while providing the community with our awesome learn to swim programme.

Lessons for those over 5 years of age are held in the school pool, whilst children under 5 years of age are catered for in our fully-enclosed, heated mobile pool,

Dates offered will vary at each School due to local commitments, so please refer to the schedules below for relevant dates.
