Swimming Lessons Print

Live Active Leisure offer swimming lessons for both children and adults of all ages.  These include:

Adult and Child

Adult and child lessons are available for children aged 3 months to 3 years. These classes are available at Perth Leisure Pool, Live Active Loch Leven, Strathearn Community Campus and Live Active Blairgowrie.

Pre-School & School Age

The Scottish Swimming, Learn to Swim Programme is taught in 10 week blocks.  To aid continuity of teaching for participants, lessons will run for 50 weeks of the year.  Assessments are continuous and ongoing throughout the block.  There is a 2 week break during the festive period.

Pre-School lessons are designed for young children aged 3 to 5 years and are 30 minutes long.  Children take part in our swimming lessons on their own, however we do insist that a parent/guardian remains in the building at all times in case they need to be contacted by the teacher.

School age lessons cater for children from Primary 1 upwards through the various levels.  School age lessons are 30 minutes long. Please note that participants will not necessarily move up a level every block.

We offer lessons that are designed specifically for adults learning to swim.  These lessons are open to adults of all ages and abilities from complete beginners.  Adults attending these lessons are split into appropriate ability levels to ensure they are taught in a group with other adults of a similar ability.  Lessons run in blocks of 10 weeks.


We offer a range of lessons specifically for children with physical, sensory and learning difficulties, who are unable to be catered for in the mainstream lesson programme.  These lessons help to teach water confidence, floating and basic swimming skills.  These lessons are called 'No Limits' and are for children aged 3 to 5 years and 5 to 8 years.

Private Lessons

Perth Leisure Pool now offer private swimming lessons for pre-school children and adults.  Priced at only £8 per lesson they are an excellent way to help your child learn to swim or simply provide a bit of extra tuition and additional confidence in the water.  We offer the following tuition ratios:  children aged 2+ - 1 to 1 tuition and adults - 1 to 1 or 1 to 2 tuition.  Private lessons are taught by our full time Activity Instructors and are available from 9.00am - 3.00pm, Monday to Friday during the school term. For more information contact  01738 454654.
