Learn to Swim at The Swim School WA

The learn to swim classes run by The Swim School WA run from level 1-6 and  follow the Swim & Survive curriculum endorsed and promoted by The Royal Life Saving Society. These stages also correspond to the stages delivered by the Department of Education and Training during the school term.

Lessons run for 30 minutes and provide a balance of skills, safety and endurance to teach participants each stroke and increase the distance covered. Being a private swim school means that class sizes are kept small, allowing the children more one-on-one time with instructors. Class sizes are limited depending on the level, these limits range from a maximum of 4 children in Stage 1 to a maximum of 6 children in Stage 6.
