Richard  Rose Swimming Pool

We would like to welcome you to Richard Rose Swimming Pool where your child can learn to swim as early as12 weeks old and continue through our wide range of classes. The pool has a warm and friendly atmosphere and with its bright and cheerful d├ęcor it is the perfect place to enjoy a family swim or to book a party. The pool also offers adults the opportunity to get fit with our Ladies only and Mixed lane swim sessions and our NEW Aqua Pilates classes. There is something for everyone.

All our teaching staff are ASA qualified and believe in making swimming an enjoyable experience. Parents are welcome to stay and watch in the small viewing area although we do find that children often learn and listen better if you are not always present.


Our learn to swim programme follows the ASA National Teaching Plan of awards and we also produce our own range of TOUCAN certificates for swimmers to collect. These awards are used as a guide to test swimmers' abilities and indicate to the teachers which class the swimmers should be attending. By enrolling your child on our TOUCAN swim programme you can be assured that they will receive the best in teaching techniques and skills. We use a multi-stroke and multi-discipline approach with continuous assessment.

Swimmers are encouraged to achieve the skills and techniques required to move up to the next class with our TOUCAN certificates and badges. These incentives make learning to swim fun and rewarding.
