Alleyn’s School is a 4-18 co-educational, independent day school in Dulwich, London, England.

Intensive Swimming Course


Each lesson lasts for 30 minutes. Class sizes are kept between 6 to 12 pupils per teacher to ensure plenty of individual tuition for each swimmer. Class sizes may vary in the higher ability groups.

Lessons are delivered by specialist instructors in the school’s 25-metre pool, taking place at time between 8.30am and 10.45am, each day. They are suitable for children aged five years and above.

Teachers will accompany non-swimmers and beginners in the water to provide an environment which is fun, friendly, and enjoyable. Parents are welcome to watch their children from our spectator area that overlooks the pool.

Our courses are open to all the community.
