Due to Covid, all of our Stage 1 & 2 classes will be running as adult & child with each swimmer needing to be accompanied by an adult in the water. There are currently no changing facilities at Kings School so swimmers need to arrive “beach ready” with their costume on under their clothes. When the lesson is over, they will need to wrap up in a towel/coat and immediately leave the building without removing their costume. Lessons will finish a couple of minutes early to allow swimmers enough time to layer up and exit poolside before the next classes arrive. Bathrooms will be available. Because of the limitations of people, we are allowed in the pool building parents/guardians will not be able to spectate the lesson.

If you are unsure of your swimmers’ stages do take a look at our Stage descriptions here – Lessons Stages & Awards – Winchester City Penguins Swimming Club (

Easter Courses Feedback

Thank-you to everyone who took part in our Easter programme. It was an incredible first week back after the latest lockdown with 334 swimmers jumping back in the water and continuing their development. The feedback has been fantastic with 100% of attendees saying they would book onto a holiday course again.

“My daughter came out of every lesson smiling from ear to ear and couldn’t wait to come back the following day. I am very impressed with the progress she has made in a week.”

“All the staff were so patient and positive. The bubble machine and music while queueing up was a great addition!”

“AS we can’t currently see our swimmers swim, the reports are brilliant for offering feedback. The teacher clearly recognised my child’s strengths and weaknesses.”

“My children have absolutely lover their week of swimming – please pass on my thanks to your amazing team.”

“As always, you and your team have delivered an absolutely outstanding service and I can never quite believe how much progress they make in such a short time!”
