Swim School

Important Notice

Our pool is now sparkling and we are ready to welcome back swimmers. We are working to government and official swimming guidelines to bring lessons back to the pool. On 31 July we will be opening up the remaining spaces in our swim school to new applicants. Please email Jo Scarlett, Commercial Manager, at jscarlett@royalrussell.co.uk for up-to-date availability. 

Swimming Lessons Autumn 2021 for children of 4+ years

As well as social distancing we will need to introduce additional measures to ensure that all COVID-safe government and swimming association guidelines are met. We hope to be able to reopen our changing room facilities soon, however, until further notice, the following procedures are in place:

  • There will be a one-way system of operation from the front of the building, through to poolside, then leaving by the designated exits.
  • All teachers will be required to teach from the poolside/platform.
  • The changing rooms and showers will not be available for use unless a pupil requires the toilet.
  • All pupils will be required to arrive ‘pool ready’ i.e. wearing swimming attire underneath their clothes, preferably a robe/dressing gown/onesie. At the end of each lesson pupils will need to towel dry and slip into their dry attire without removing their swimsuits.
  • All adults and pupils will need to leave the building via the side exits as marked.
  • One adult will be permitted to accompany each child and will be required to stay on poolside for the duration of the lesson.

Please watch our step-by-step video below on how to enter and exit the pool during the operation of these lessons.

We are very much looking forward to welcoming you back to Royal Russell Swim School for the 2021 Summer Term.
