Holmleigh Park High School

Swim School - Newsletter July 2019

Dear Parents and Swimmers

Another year has flown by with some fantastic achievements from our swimmers and here we are looking forward to the exciting changes for the autumn term.

As some of you may be aware Beaufort Co-operative Academy recently changed to Holmleigh Park High School, a change which also applies to the Sports Centre and Swim School, so we are now Holmleigh Park Sports Centre.


The school has gone through very exciting and positive changes, the same is true for the swim school:

To enable us to keep class sizes small and provide the very best teaching and support we have had to apply a small price increase for next year, however we are also offering some very positive changes which will have a significant impact on your child’s swimming. 

I am delighted to be able to announce that we will be offering all children enrolled on our swim programme free access to general swimming during the term time. You will need to collect your child’s swim card during the first week of swim school, free access for your child will only be given on production of this card.

I am introducing a 5-minute gap between each lesson, not only will this ensure that all lessons start exactly on time, it will also give the teachers time to record your child’s progress even more accurately than they currently do. This change will ensure a much calmer transition between each lesson with an opportunity, if needed, for you to have a quick chat with the teacher. Please bear in mind that this will mean a slight change to our traditional class times.

Our commitment to the very best teaching possible continues with the addition of new teachers and assistants to meet the needs of our popular lessons.


To secure your place for the September term (15 weeks) please ensure you return your enrolment form this week as places will go very quickly, especially on certain days where we have limited availability in some groups. From Monday the 15th we will accept new enrolments and do our best to accommodate changes of day for our current swimmers. Please feel free to speak to me if you have any questions about our payment plan.

Best Wishes
