Welcome to Quackers Swim School
The Prime Minister has announced a provisional opening date for leisure centres of Monday 12th April 2021. Assuming that there are no changes to this between now and then, we plan to start lessons soon afterwards. An exact date has not yet been confirmed, but as soon as the decision has been made will be in touch. Take care and stay safe.
Quackers Swim School provides traditional swimming lessons from age three months to pre-club level. We also offer 1 to 1 lessons, 1 to 2 lessons, disabled lessons, rookie lifeguard lessons, mermaid lessons and family bubble swims. Courses are run in school term time, but we also provide intensive courses during the holidays.
Your child will learn to swim in a safe and friendly environment. All of our teachers are fully qualified and DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) checked. Our lessons are competitively priced and we guarantee smaller class sizes.
The Lenton Centre pool reopened in 2008, but was originally opened in 1966. The pool is 18 metres long by 7 metres wide. There are showers and separate male and female group changing facilities.
Quackers Swim School is an affiliated member of Swim England.
Quackers Swim School has a special place in our minds because this is where my son started swimming at the age of two. All the staff at Quackers have been great at building my son’s confidence. He has really enjoyed the lessons even though he was anxious before the start of some of them. Now he is 5 and we are moving out of the area – so sad to leave this great swim school! Special thanks to Jo for bringing a positive change in every aspect since she joined.
Dear Quackers team, thank you for all your hard work teaching our three children to swim. They have thoroughly enjoyed their time at Quackers.
Thank you for teaching me to be a good swimmer. I’ve loved every minute of it.
My girls have all enjoyed Quackers lessons over the years. Great instructors such as yourself, Lisa, Ben and Connor have ensured that my girls have progressed at an amazing rate whilst having fun and feeling safe. Please pass on our love and appreciation to the team and all the best for the future.
Just a quick note to say thank you for everything you have done for Abigail with her swimming. Since she joined Quackers her progress has been amazing with her achievements over the past 3 ½ years exceeding our expectations. The friendly calm and dedicated approach of the team has seen Abigail’s confidence grow weekly with her looking forward to her sessions. Her technical advancement is incredible and it is a delight to watch her swimming. Thank you for all your support and we wish you all the very best in the future.
Dear everyone at Quackers, thank you for teaching me to swim. I really enjoyed coming to Quackers.
Olivia is very happy with her achievement; her very first swimming badge and certificate. We are all so proud of how well she’s started swimming and how much her confidence has grown despite being blind. This wouldn’t have been possible without the amazing team at Quackers Swim School. The Manager Jo Lester even went into Olivia’s school to braille the certificate so Olivia could read it. Jo and her staff go above and beyond for my daughter and I’ll be eternally grateful. Thank you and well done to Olivia.
Let us take this opportunity to thank you and the teachers at Quackers for the years of excellent lessons our children have received. They are now really confident swimmers and thoroughly enjoy pools and sea swimming on holiday with the knowledge they are safe to do so due to their lessons. I hope the Swim School is able to teach for many years to come.
