The Borough of Harrow Swimming Club runs Harrow Swim School, offering Monday, Wednesday evening and Saturday and Sunday morning swimming lessons.
Please note, Harrow Swim School teaches children from 4.5 years to adult swimmers.
We offer small classes to provide greater individual attention and continued development for your child. The lessons are for all abilities, from non-swimmers to those who need to develop confidence and competence in the water.
The Borough of Harrow Swimming Club Swim School is committed to providing the best teaching for your child. The lessons follow the Swim England Learn to Swim Programme. This offers a structure for progression within a fun environment.
Our dedicated Swim School team will make sure your child is in the right group and provide assessment reports at the end of each term.

Cancelled lessons by the club
In the unfortunate event that Harrow Swimming Club must cancel a lesson, we will notify you by email. We will endeavour to add an alternative date to the course. If you are unable to make the alternative date, the lessons will not be refunded, credited or transferred.
If Harrow Swim School unable to provide an alternative date, a credit in lieu of payment will be issued for next term course.
Refunds cannot be offered if the cancelled lessons were due to circumstances out of our control such as adverse weather conditions, power interruption, ‘acts of God’, pandemic which are deemed to be contractually outside of our control.
We have a maximum of 7 swimmers to 1 teacher in our beginner and improver classes. Our deep-end and lengths classes have a maximum of 10 swimmers to 1 teacher.
The teachers who work in the water will teach by supporting the body and aiding correct stroke technique through demonstration and manipulation.
Assessing is programmed into each term over 2 weekends on specified dates for all swimmers towards the end of each term. However, if a child has progressed to pass the criteria during the term we can move swimmers. Teachers will recommend to our Learn to Swim Programme Manager if they feel a swimmer is ready to progress to the next level.
Please note, we will not be able to guarantee the same time or day as the current class if children move during the term. Children will be allocated a place in the next class dependant on availabilities.
Once swimmers have completed stage 7 they are offered the opportunity to enrol in to our Academy squad, which can then lead onto our Squad programme. Those with the potential and enthusiasm are encouraged to consider entering our competitive squads which can involve training several times a week and entering galas.
The last lesson of each term is a fun swim. This lesson builds the swimmers water confidence and encourages different water skills, outside of the usual lesson environment.
All swimmers are required to wear a swimming hat. We sell these at poolside for £5.00. Any swimmers who are not completely toilet trained are to wear swim pants.
All swimmers should refrain from wearing jewelry whenever possible.
