Dear parents and carers,

Cancelled lessons 14th, 15th and 16th May 2021

We have been advised from Brookfields School that we will not be able to use the pool this week.

We are extremely sorry we are not able to put on the lessons, we are really sad as we know how disappointing it is and frustrating.

The swimming school is a business that relies on pool hire and is the only way we can provide lessons. It is our passion to provide swimming lessons and as a small business we do our best to continue to do so, especially after a difficult year with the impact of COVID.

We appreciate the support we receive from the families who have continued to stay with us throughout the difficulties and really hope that you will understand our situation and have patience whilst the repairs are carried out on the air handling unit by the school.

Please email [email protected] if you have any questions.

Thank you
Little Dolphins Swimming School

Dear parents and carers,

Unfortunately we will have to cancel this weeks lessons, 7th, 8th and 9th May.

Brookfield School have advised they have had an engineer out to assess the problem with the pool and it is the air handling unit that needs to be fixed. Unfortunately this will not be done in time for us to use the pool.

We are really disappointed that we are not able to put the lessons on this week and appreciate that you may feel frustrated, which we understand, however, unfortunately this is beyond our control.

We hope to be able to get back in the pool next week and will give you another update as soon as we are able to.

Please accept our apologies, we really are sad we won't be able to see the children for their lessons.

We will provide credits for the cancelled lessons.

Please email [email protected] if you have any questions.

Dear Parent and Carers,

We are hoping to have an update regarding our use of the swimming pool at Brookfields School to pass onto you as soon as possible.

The issue appears to be with the air handling unit motor which had to be turned off late Saturday afternoon which meant we had to cancel lessons from 3.30pm and also Sunday.

We have used the swimming pool at Brookfield school for many years and as soon as we have further information we will provide another update.

If we do have to cancel lessons, we will send emails and post announcements on our page and Instagram.

We cannot always call everyone in time for when you may be due to arrive, but we will do our best to contact you.

Please email [email protected] if you have any questions.

Kind Regards
Little Dolphins Swimming School

Welcome to Little Dolphins Swimming School

Little Dolphins Swimming School has been teaching children to swim since it opened approximately 15 years ago, serving over 250 students each year.

At Little Dolphins, we have been teaching at Brookfields School in Tilehurst Reading since the very beginning. Brookfields have a fantastic Hydrotherapy Pool which is ideal for our learners. Our small classes of approximately 8 learners have a swimming instructor and 2 water helpers. of which we have 2 classes in the water at most times. This encourages our learners to have a better understanding of the water and helps them to develop and progress.

Our amazing Swimming Instructors are qualified to teach our learners and hold the appropriate qualifications and have taken the necessary β€˜Continuing Professional Development’ courses to keep the profession up-to-date so our learners are getting the best. Our Instructors are instructive, inspiring and encourage the children that learning to swim should be fun.

We take learners from 3.1/2 years and our lessons take place on late Friday afternoon to early evening, Saturday morning to early afternoon and early Sunday afternoon. The cost of our classes is Β£6.75 per lesson x how many weeks there are in a term for us and would be discussed at booking. Please note you will be asked for proof of passing any previous stages or levels before we will allocate a place (not applicable to Stage 1 applicants).
