Swim Lessons

Sherborne Sports Centre runs a very popular swim school for children and adults during term time & intensive lessons over the school holiday period.  Our experienced, STA qualified team will initially assess the learner’s ability and then offer an appropriate class if there is availability.


30 minute daily intensive lessons are run during the school holidays (Mon-Fri). This is an effective way for children to make impressive progress in a short space of time.

These courses are limited to 12 places – Payment is required up front to reserve your child’s place.

The next upcoming Intensive swim lessons are during the Summer 2017, for a sign up form click the link below:

Please call the Sports Centre on 01935 810548 or email gym@sherborne.org for enquiries.
All lessons are half-hour and run in 12 week blocks
