Home of WCPSC’s Lessons Programme
Welcome to Winchester City Penguins Swim School. We are proud to be a well respected swim school that has been delivering highly effective and enjoyable swimming lessons to local children and adults for over 70 years.
We are the swim school to choose for high quality, affordable lessons. We are unique because:
The Penguins Lesson team is currently working in partnership with Swim England and their pool providers to ensure we are able to get our lessons program back up and running in a “COVID Safe” environment as soon as possible.
At this time, due to social distancing rules, we are planning on only offering lessons to swimmers in Stage 4 and above from September 2020. We feel as though we would not be able to offer Stage 1-3 lessons to the same high standard without having instructors in the water.
However the guidelines are frequently changing and we shall be constantly reviewing and updating our Covid precautions so that we can get as many of our members back in the pool ASAP, while still keeping them safe.
At this time we are planning to return with 7 width lanes classes for Stages 4 and 5, each class with 3 swimmers in. We shall also be offering 5 length lane classes for Stage 6, 7, 8 and 9, each class with 4 swimmers in. Please note that as guidelines are updated this is subject to change.
We shall shortly be opening a booking system to our current membership bases so that they can apply for a space on our new program. Spaces will be allocated on a first come, first served basis and we shall establish a waiting list.
If you have any questions or queries, let us know. Click the link below to use our Enquiry Form and we’ll be in touch over the next few days.
We understand the importance of keeping lessons fun, cool and engaging for everyone.
No matter whether you are at the seaside, on holiday or at your local swimming pool, we want you, as parents, to feel at ease knowing your child has a good knowledge of water safety and feels confident in the water. Explore our courses and register your child now!
