No-shows and cancellations policy

We are experiencing a rise in the number of people who book a swimming session in advance but then do not appear.  Demand for swim bookings is high right now and if you cannot make a session for any reason, please proactively cancel it through our booking system so that someone else can take the slot. If you fail to do so and are a Student Sports Pass holder, you will be charged a £3 no-show fee. Please click here for more details.

Learn to swim

The Team Bath Tribe Swim School provides lessons for children aged from 3 months to pre-school in our hugely popular parent and child classes, as well as our school-aged to 18 lessons in both our hydrotherapy and Olympic-sized 50m pool. We also offer adult improver lessons for those who wish to refine their swimming and strokes further.

Our small class sizes allow for children to get fantastic support and development opportunities in a safe and inclusive environment.

Parent and child classes run on Wednesday and Thursday mornings. School-aged lessons take place in our hydro-pool from 4-7pm Monday to Friday and 9am-1pm on Saturdays. Lessons in the 50m pool are from 5.30-7pm on Monday and Wednesday and 9-11.15am on Saturdays, with adult swim sessions on Mondays from 7-8pm.
