Bridge College moved into this new building in 2012. They have a fantastic 8m x 4m hydrotherapy pool which is ideal for babies and toddlers.

The water is kept at a temperature of 33-35˚C with a depth of 1.2 metres.

The steps are easy and safe to descend whilst holding your baby and there is some poolside viewing – it’s very warm so we suggest light clothing is worn when watching a class.

Once parked please follow the Aqua Babies signs around to the back of the building.

Buggies can be left in the first waiting area and shoes can be left in the area outside each changing room.

Bridge College has two male and two female changing areas with showers in each and a playpen in the middle changing room.

Aqua Babies is delighted to be working together with Bridge College and Together Trust, supporting them with their hydrotherapy facility.

What our Customers say...

“I just wanted to say that we really appreciated the (free) Extra Classes. They have made a massive difference in just a few weeks and Oliver is back to being confident and happy swimming.”


Grace is loving her new swimming lessons, so I just wanted to say thank you to all the teachers who have taught her.

I think Aqua Babies is a wonderful swimming class for young children and my daughter has definitely benefited and have recommended Aqua Babies to all my friends.

Helen has been brilliant with my daughter. I am totally delighted with the results we have achieved in the last two terms!

Charlotte Wedd with Pre-schooler Gizelle

I have had Sue teach throughout for both boys and think she is excellent at what she does and more importantly my children respond well and really like her.  I have nothing but praise for the classes I have been attending.
