Swimming lessons are held at the Lord Butler Leisure Centre, Saffron Walden.

If your child is swimming please ensure that they have their swimming kit with them on Wednesdays, including a swimming hat. 

Contributions are £4.50 per week to cover the cost of the coach, tuition fees, pool rental and guards.   Please make any cheques payable to Essex County Council.

Payments should be made on Mondays (or the first day of the term / half term if different)

It would be extremely helpful if you could encourage your children NOT to bring toys, notepads, pens etc to swimming in their swimming bags to prevent items of value to the children getting mislaid or damaged either on the bus or in the changing rooms.  Similarly please could your child avoid bringing non-essential accessories (friendship bracelets, elaborate hair accessories, watches) on swimming days.

Swimming hats

We have a limited supply of Chrishall School printed swimming hats available for purchase from the office at £3 (payments to Chrishall Primary School please).
