watching week

Parents and carers are permitted to watch the lessons at the poolside once a month during the allocated watching week dates. To reduce distraction during these lessons, we require full co-operation. This means observation without noise please.

Exceptions to our watching week policy for busy working parents can be made. Please speak to reception to arrange this prior to the lesson.

Watching week dates may vary, so please check them here on a regular basis. Further details and any changes will be posted on the black board in reception.

For your comfort we have installed a new CCTV system to enable daily viewing of the classes downstairs in our waiting area. This will remain on during the scheduled watching weeks for those who prefer not to sit at the poolside.

Any questions regarding the lessons must be directed to reception. On occasion some major sports events will also be shown on this screen.

are granny and granddad in town?

Obviously grannies and granddad’s are more than welcome to watch a lesson when they are in town, please make prior arrangements with reception.
