As well as our sessions in our own hydrotherapy pool, we have several other off site swimming opportunities for our children.

On a Wednesday or Thursday morning some of our children attend the Wythenshawe Forum pool for a "fun session" of swimming. This is led by our own Ashgate staff where the children are able to develop their water confidence and early swimming techniques. On a Thursday morning, we have a second session at the Forum where the children are taught by a qualified instructor supported by our own staff.

We also have a weekly session on a Wednesday morning at the Altrincham Leisure Centre. Children accessing these sessions spend time in the small pool which has slides, water fountains and jets. This builds up their confidence in water but also helps with their physical development and their ability to interact with others outside of the school setting.

There are specialist swimming lessons at the Forum on a Saturday morning that many of our children attend. Please contact the Forum for more details.
