Return of swimming lessons

Our swimming lesson programme re-started on Wednesday 2nd December and we are excited to welcome you and your child back. 

We have made some changes to our lesson programme, including reducing class sizes. This has allowed us to expand the programme to offer more classes so that you can restart your child’s lessons. 

We have added more lessons to our programme, check the lesson schedule to find out more. You can check availability for a class by contacting us on swimming.courses@ipswich.gov.uk
