Learn to Swim

<-Back to Squads page.


BPSC’s Learn to Swim scheme is a safe, supportive and fun environment in which we teach your child their first strokes and improve their current technique, allowing them to increase their water confidence and develop a lifelong enjoyment of the water.

BPSC’s Learn to Swim scheme offers the following:

  1. classes for children from 3 years of age and up;
  2. classes to suit a variety of experience and abilities;
  3. the SwimEngland Framework for swimming teaching;
  4. SwimEngland-qualified teachers and water helpers – all over-16s are DBS-checked;
  5. pool water helpers to support your child’s development – the majority of our water helpers began their own swimming journey at BPSC and currently swim in our squads;
  6. value for money – BPSC is a non-profit registered charity;
  7. two free taster sessions for new starters;
  8. numerous sessions across the week, at various Barnet venues;
  9. natural progression into the club’s squads, with the opportunity to participate in competitions.

Where possible, we aim to be inclusive and welcome children with special educational needs and/or disabilities. However, not all our locations may be suitable for all children. Please email information@bpsc.club to discuss specific requirements.


If you are interested in finding out more, or would like to enroll your child, please send an e-mail to information@bpsc.club, providing us with your child’s details including current swim level, age, and preferred sessions.
