Swimming Lessons Crash Course in Cambridgeshire

About Us

Welcome to CG Swim School. We are a family-run swimming school whose aim is to inspire swimmers to be confident and safe whilst having fun. We strive to provide a friendly, welcoming atmosphere with a personal touch. All swimmers are welcome, from 3 months old to 100 years old, regardless of their previous experience and level of confidence. Our lessons are tailored to each individual need and we keep to a strict ratio of no more than 4 babies, 3 children or 2 adults per lesson. This is to ensure we can give our full attention to each swimmer and help them make as much progress as possible.

Our lessons are held across 3 sites in Cambridge: Little Thetford, Caldecote and Newmarket. All pools are kept lovely and warm (32 degrees) with clean facilities. We pride ourselves in cleanliness and creating a warm, welcoming environment so that your whole experience with us is enjoyable.

Learn to Swim Awards

In our children’s lessons, we follow the National Plan for Teaching Swimming (NPTS), as set out by the Amateur Swimming Association (ASA) Learn to Swim Awards. This allows swimmers to progress through seven different stages which make up the core, national syllabus of learning to swim for primary school aged children. They are designed to reward children for their development of the essential aquatic skills they need to be confident, competent and safe in the water.

Each of the Learn to Swim Stage 1-7 Awards has a list of clear outcomes that need to be completed in order to gain each award. Once these have been achieved, children are given a certificate to take home and be proud of.
