Swimming lessons

Lessons are currently run on a termly basis and roughly follow the school terms. During school holidays we run a range of ‘crash courses’ designed to spark or continue an interest in swimming.

For swimming prices and opening times please see our swimming pools - prices and times page.

National Pool Lifeguarding Qualification

The RLSS UK National Pool Lifeguard Qualification (NPLQ) is the most awarded lifeguard qualification in the United Kingdom and Ireland. It is also internationally recognised.

The NPLQ is an excellent starting point for anyone looking for a career in the leisure industry. NPLQ courses and exams take place at Bracknell Leisure Centre during half terms and holidays on these dates.

To book and for details of NPLQ courses, please visit the RLSS website.
