Intensive Swimming Lessons at activeNewham

Dear Parent/Carer,

We are pleased to announce that we will be running crash course lessons for all stages from Ducklings (3 ½ years), Stage 1 through to Stage 7 (5 years +) over the Spring Break from Monday 4th - 8th & 11th - 15th April 2022. These 5-day intensive lessons will run Monday - Friday for 30 minutes per day.
The cost of the 5-day intensive lessons is £26 or £19 if you concession member.
Due to COVID we will still be running with the following changes until further notice. These procedures will be reviewed regularly, and changes made as and when required.

Current changes to swimming lessons are:

  • The levels of chlorine in swimming pool water have been adjusted to meet current industry guidance. According to the scientific literature, there is no increased risk of contracting COVID-19 from swimming in chlorinated pools, and pool operators adhering to previously set guidelines will control risk from waterborne COVID-19.
  • All lessons will be instructed from poolside.
  • All lessons children lesson will be 30 minutes.
  • All swim school participants should arrive ‘beach ready’ with their swimming attire under their clothes.
  • All customers should arrive 10 minutes before the lesson, ready to start on time. Any latecomers will be denied entry to the swimming lesson.
  • Customers should not be in the changing rooms for any longer than 5 to 10 minutes.
  • Whilst the lessons are taking place there is no viewing area at Atherton Leisure Centre. Newham Leisure Centre and East Ham Leisure Centre have a spectator area available for parent/carers. 

If a child is displaying any signs or symptoms of COVID-19, we advise your child not attend Swimming lessons.

If you require any further information or to book your place, please contact our Customer Services Centre on 0300 124 0123. Please note our Customer Service Centre is open Monday- Friday 9am - 2pm. Please note there may be delays due to a large number of incoming calls.

The Newham Swim Team
