NEW! Learn to swim programme for children and adults across the Stirling area.

We currently have swimming lessons at 5 venues - The PEAK, Wallace High, Bannockburn High, Stirling High and Balfron High Schools. Our programme is designed to teach children through having fun, playing games and other activities in the pool that will help them learn core swimming skills such as breathing, submerging and moving in the water. Swimming strokes will be introduced gradually once your child has learned the basic core water skills and techniques.

Our learn to swim programme follows the new Scottish Swimming’s National Framework for swimming in Scotland which provides a clear set of national standards and a pathway which allows you to follow how your child is progressing and their ability to swim. Please see our new programme below.

We are please to offer FREE swimming to all Learn to Swim Direct Debit customers and customers paying annually. This allows your Child to swim anytime free of charge at The PEAK or Balfron High School, over and above their lessons (Terms and Conditions apply - see below). Just bring your Child's Learn to Swim card with you to Reception to access your free swim.

Terms and Conditions for PEAK swimming: please see http://www.thepeakstirling.org.uk/facilities/pool/

Terms and Conditions for Balfron High swimming: Children under 8 years old must be accompanied by a paying adult. A 1 adult: 2 children ratio applies. Free swims are only available during public swimming sessions. Free swimming at Balfron High does not include the fun sessions. This promotion cannot be used in conjunction with other promotions.
