School Sessions

Friday 31 January – Friday 14 February

We are offering schools in the Leeds Metropolitan District subsidised ice skating training sessions.

Skate sessions

The First Steps to Skating programme includes basic tuition by qualified coaches with all ice skates and safety helmets (compulsory for pupils) provided.

There are three daily sessions available on weekdays from Friday 31 January until Friday 14 February:

  • 10.00 – 10.45
  • 11.00 – 11.45
  • 14.00 – 14.45

Skating tuition is limited to two sessions per school on a strictly first come first served basis. Each 45 minute session is limited to school groups of a maximum of 30 pupils. Smaller groups of a similar age range are able to share a session, maximum booking of 15 pupils per school.


All schools will need to arrange their own transport to and from the rink, public liability insurance for those skating, and to follow the approved adult child supervision ratio and respective internal systems for category 2 educational visits. Fully qualified rink staff will provide all on-ice supervision including arrangements for those with specific needs (please therefore provide as much information as possible at time of booking).

Prices and booking

£3 per pupil (VAT may be charged), accompanying teachers skate free of charge. Payment must be made in advance. Any provisional bookings will be held for a maximum of two days and then offered to other schools.

To check availability and/or make a booking, contact the Events Team on 0113 378 6988 or events@leeds.gov.uk. Please book early to avoid any disappointment.
