K-12 learn to swim

ASL offers a varied program of water activities for students of all abilities in the School’s 25-meter swimming pool, located in the Aquatic & Fitness Center. From building water confidence for beginners, to preparation for competition for advanced swimmers, the K-12 pool program has something for everyone. 

The programs on the this page are for current ASL Families. If you are not part of the ASL community please see our Non-ASL swimming webpage.

The booking portal will open on Monday, 26 February, 12 pm (GMT) for the spring season swim program. 

Children develop at their own pace, and our experienced coaches and swim teachers work to address the needs of each child to enable individuals to progress and perfect new skills.

The aquatics program is separate from the after school programs run by the school. For more details on after school and Athletics programs please use the below links:

Lower school children
  • Swimming lessons, beginner swim training and swim training

All children in the lower school need to be collected by a responsible adult at school dismissal time. This adult would then need to provide supervision. If your child is 9 or older they do not need to be supervised whilst attending the session but do need to be dropped off and collected from the pool by a responsible adult. 

  • AquaFun and artistic swimming

All children will be collected and dismissed in the same way as Lower School ASP's. An adult is not required for these sessions. We will collect from school dismissal and bring them down to the activity and then return them to the lower school for collection/busing at the end of the session.

Busing is not available for swimming lessons or swim training but can be booked for AquaFun.
