      Group lessons not for you or your child?* Then maybe our one-to-one lessons are. These lessons will help give you or your child the specific teaching points needed to improve. Whether a relative beginner or experienced swimmer, our teachers can tailor the lesson to suit you.

      *Please note that you must be a minimum of 4 years old.

      Each 30 minute lesson is £20 and can be booked in at any mutually convenient time. If you would like to book a lesson please contact swimlessons@sandfordparkslido.org.uk
