Aquarius Swim School

State-of-the-art facilities and experienced teachers form the core of our ‘Aquarius Schools’ Swim School. With pools in the north, south and east of Coventry, schools are able to access the venue that is nearest to them in order to minimise travel time.

The Xcel Leisure Centre in the south of the city provides a 25-metre pool with adjustable floor height, the pool at Centre AT7 boasts a 25-metre pool with a splash pool and The Alan Higgs Centre offers 50-metre pool with adjustable floor height.

Lessons are thirty minutes in duration, with one-hour multi-aquatic classes available for children who have progressed through all of the stages. We run a continuous assessment for all children, enabling progression at the point when all the criteria has been achieved.

The swim programme focuses on all four main strokes, water confidence and water skills. Children will develop key stroke techniques whilst working towards badges from the ASA ‘learn to swim’ pathway.

You can learn more about our programme of swimming lessons for children below.
