Welcome to Amersham Swimming School

This section runs as a feeder programme to Amersham Swimming Club with the aim of providing all children with the opportunity to learn to swim and develop skills towards competitive swimming.

We have two prorgammes, both of which take place in local school pools during term time. Lessons are 30 minutes each and the course length varies according to the number of weeks in each school term.


Learn to Swim

“Learn to Swim” lessons are held at Heritage House School, Cameron Road, Chesham (HP5 3BP) on Tuesday and Fridays evenings. Swimmers are grouped according to ability, with a maximum of six swimmers in each class.







Stage 0 - 2

Stage 3 and 4

(no class)


New class

stages 1-3


Stage 0 - 2

Stage 3 and 4

Our teachers are in the water with swimmers which we find is the most beneficial way to give swimmers confidence and aid their progress into swimming independently. The pool is a hydrotherapy pool so is warm and ideal for young beginners.

Swimmers are assessed each term and will achieve up to stage 4, confidently swimming 10m on their front and back. Hereafter they are invited to continue lessons at our stroke development classes (as detailed below) if they so wish.

Stroke Development

“Stroke Development” lessons are held at Maltmans Green School, Gerrards Cross (SL9 8RR), on Saturday mornings.
