As our leisure centres re-open on Wednesday 2nd December, after the recent November lockdown, our Learn To Swim programme will resume, with lessons starting on Wednesday 2nd December.

We’re looking forward to welcoming swimmers back to our pools.

Unfortunately swimming lessons at Clarendon won’t restart until 2nd January 2021. So, if you have lessons at Clarendon, then your payments will not restart until after this date.


We will be following the same procedures we had in place when we restarted lessons in September.

All lessons will return on the same day and time as before lockdown. So whichever stage you attended for your last lesson, you will return to that class.

Remember to log into the Learn To Swim portal via the SCL app to check your progress.


If your Direct Debit usually comes out on the 1st of the month, then your next payment will be taken on 1st January 2021.

If your Direct Debit usually comes out on the 15th of the month, then your next payment will be taken on 15th December.

If you pay for lessons via a 10 week block pass, the remaining lessons you didn’t receive due to lockdown remain on your account so you haven’t missed out on any lessons.
