Active Nation are delighted to be able to offer you the opportunity to take part in a free half hour springboard/highboard diving lesson at the Quays.

Please note: children can only access a free place by booking via school. Places can be booked directly with the Quays, but these would be subject to a £7.25 charge. Please contact us if you would like us to provide you with an electronic version of the application form and letter for parents. Participating children should be aged between 6 and 13 years and will need to be able to swim at least 25m unaided, to be confident in deep water and to be happy to swim without goggles.

Each session will last for 30 minutes and children will be taught in groups of up to 8 by qualified instructors from the Southampton Diving Programme. Every child who takes part in the scheme will receive a certificate of participation. Children who have previously been offered a place in a taster will only be considered if there are surplus places available.

For divers aged between 6 and 13 years we are now able to offer sessions at the following times:

  • Tuesday 13th Dec, 4 – 4.30pm or 4.30 – 5pm or 7 – 7.30pm
  • Wednesday 14th Dec, 4 – 4.30pm or 4.30 – 5pm or 5 – 5.30pm or 7 – 7.30pm

  • Saturday 17th Dec, 9 – 9.30am or 9.30 – 10am
  • Sunday 18th Dec, 11.30am – 12pm or 2 – 2.30pm

Places will be filled on a first come first served basis and the children will be contacted during the week before the session to confirm their places. Should you be interested please print, complete and return the application form below.


Please return your completed form to school. All applications from Gomer will be sent together in a single batch.

If you have any questions about the scheme, please contact Max on 023 8072 0906 / We look forward to receiving your applications.
