When you think about the amount of water in Norfolk - rivers, broads and coastlines - swimming is one of the best ways to help keep your children active and safe. That’s why we're dedicated to helping parents keep their children active by providing excellent, safe and well-established Swim Schools at our pools in Diss & Wymondham.

How to book a place at Swim School
If you are new to Swim School, you need to contact our leisure centres, where they will asses the swimmer's needs and allocate a competency level. You will be given a pupil ID and then can either book into a class online, or at the leisure centre.
For existing Swim School pupils, bookings can be made online before the new term starts (see below for details of the booking periods). If a pupil is graded as staying at the same stage, then please ensure you book within the specified ‘stayers’ timeframe to ensure a place within the same class for the new term.

Where is Swim School?
National Plan for Teaching Swimming (NPTS)
All our Swim School sessions form part of the National Plan for Teaching Swimming (NPTS) and all our teachers are certified with the Amateur Swimming Association (ASA). With the NPTS, children can take part in Swim Schools from just four months old. The NPTS is an all-inclusive programme which takes the non-swimmer from their first splash, all the time developing confidence and competence in the water.
