Welcome to aspirations wellbeing


What are the SwimSchool dates and the enrolment dates?

Our website provides lots of information regarding session timetables, swimschool enrolment and lessons, forthcoming events etc.  Please check our website for details.  You will also find a copy of our most current swimschool newsletter which will give you the relevant dates.  If you wish to be informed about this and other information please click on our 'Keep Informed' page and enter your details. 

Do you accept CVs in support of Job Applications

No, we do not accept CVs as we have a standard application form that needs to be completed.  Having a standard form means that we are able to look at the merits of all candidates equally.  If there is a job advertised that you wish to apply for please contact Human Resources on 01933 352991 or you can email hr@aspirationswellbeing.org.uk with your name and contact details (stating the post you are applying for) and an electronic verson of our application form will be forwarded to you.

What are your Membership Prices?

We have various Memberships including Swim Only.  Please click here for information. 

When are the Public Swimming Sessions?

Our Swim Timetables will give you all the information you need.  Click here to access them.

Do I need to book into a Group Class?

Yes, we ask that you let us know (up to 7 days beforehand) if you wish to come to any Group Class even if you are an Aspirations Wellbeing Member as we cannot guarantee places for anyone who turns up ad hoc.  Classes have limited numbers so we also ask that you let us know if you need to cancel your place in order that we can offer it to someone else as we hold a waiting list when sessions are fully booked.  Contact the Nene Centre on 01832 734090, the Pemberton Centre on 01933 350324 or Splash Leisure Pool on 01933 410505.
