Reading Swimming Club Lessons

Learn to Swim with Reading Swimming Club - Registration Period 2022 to 2023




We welcome anyone interested in learning to swim or wanting to improve their strokes from the age of 4 up to adult. Our swimming teachers are well qualified and enthusiastic, with a genuine interest for the sport of swimming.


The club is very proud to be SwimMark accredited. This provides evidence that the club and its programs and policies has been scrutinised, and found to be current and up-to-date with all the required regulations and that it will continue to improve.


All our swimmers wear swimming hats, for safety and hygiene reasons. Swimmers will need to get theses hats from the swimming teachers at a cost of £4.50. Red-Stages 1-3, White - Stages 4-6 and Black Stages 7 upwards including Academy, swimfit and Adults. Our swimming teachers have these hats at all our Sites.


We run the Teaching Programme from four different venues:


Highdown School, Emmer Green (Tuesday evening) Stage 3 and above

Sonning Common Primary School (Friday evening) Stage 1-2 only

Kendrick Girls' School (Friday evening, Saturday and Sunday morning) Stages 1-10 and Adult Lessons

St Andrew's School, Pangbourne (Wednesday evening) Stages 1-10 and Adult Improvers.



Our programme of lessons are structured to encourage progression from each stage to the next as the swimmer improves. Lessons run during term time only and are payable by a lump sum or monthly once we have sent an invoice to you. Stages 1 - 6 lessons run for 30 minutes, Stages 7 - 9 run for 45 minutes and Academy sessions (Stage 10) run for 45 - 60 minutes. Swimfit 60 minutes and Adult lessons are 45 minutes. 


From Stage 6, if your swimmer would like to take part in swimming competitions we encourage swimmers to move into our training section - starting with the Dev 4 Squad which is 2 sessions a week. Please see our 'Join Us' button on the home page or the 'Squad' tab for more details.

We do not permit parents onto poolside during their lessons as we feel this distracts and disrupts the childrens learning.  For some medical conditions parents are allowed to stay.
