Swim School Overview
Polam School in Bedford, your leading local 'home from home' independent school can provide Swimming facilities for all a child’s needs.
As your bump begins to grow and your body changes shape, there is little more relaxing than to take the weight off your feet and immerse yourself into a warm pool.
Parent and Toddler
Our ever popular parent and baby/toddler sessions provide a wonderful opportunity for parents to spend a wonderful half hour in the water with their child.
Once children reach 3, they stop going into the water with mum or dad, and are taught in small groups led by a teacher who is in the pool with them.
Young Teaching Groups
Once the children start full time school, usually at age 4-5, they progress to our young teaching groups.
As with our young teaching groups, we keep classes small (maximum of 7 per class) to ensure every child gets special attention and we can give extra help where needed.
Children at the upper age range of the Children's groups with a minimum of a Polam Swim School 200m may be invited to join Squad sessions.
Adult Swimming Lessons
