Our swimming lessons in Glasgow at Holyrood Secondary School are perfect for swimmers of all abilities; from pre-school, non-swimmers and beginners, through to more advanced swimmers. Children are taught how to swim here each week by some of the best swimming teachers in the country.

Situated just off junction 1A of the M74 Motorway, Holyrood is easily accessible to most people in the South of Glasgow. The swimming classes are especially convenient for families living in areas such as Shawlands and Pollokshields due to its prime location.

Pool Information

Size: 20m x 4 lane

Average Temperature: 28 degrees Celcius

Changing Rooms: There are changing rooms and lockers available for all swimmers at Holyrood Secondary School.

Hygiene: Our teachers really love it when children blow their noses and go to the toilet before the start of lessons. This tends to avoid any unwanted surprises and causes minimum disruption to the lessons!

Meeting Point

Once children are changed with caps and googles on, they can make their way onto poolside and head to the pool side where they can sit underneath the colour coded signs relating to their colour of swimming cap. From there, individual teachers will collect them for the start of their lesson. Stickers will be awarded at the end of the lesson and children should head to the near right-hand corner before going to the changing area to meet their parents.

Viewing the Pool

The great thing about Holyrood is that you can sit right on poolside and feel part of your child’s progression. There is ample seating available at the poolside.

Personal Equipment


Eye goggles must be worn to allow for clear vision.
No baggy shorts are allowed as they restrict leg movement.
All children must wear their SwimEasy swim cap to prevent distractions and for pool cleanliness.
Swimming Costumes must be tight fitting preferably one size smaller than normal.
