Swimming Lessons

​Swimming is an important life skill for everyone and swimming lessons are the perfect way to ensure you and your children are confident and safe in the water throughout your lives. Swimming is also one of the safest and most popular forms of exercise!​​​​​

We offer swimming lessons from 6 weeks to adulthood, by learning to swim and getting the essentials right you are more likely to enjoy swimming opportunities in the future – at your local pool, on holiday, at the beach.

Learning to swim also opens up many sports opportunities. Water polo, diving, canoeing, sailing and snorkelling are just a few examples of fun activities based in and around water.

All of our swimming lessons are run by fully qualified Swimming Teachers. Our Teachers hold a minimum level 2 swim teaching qualification and receive ongoing continuous professional development. We pride ourselves on delivering swimming lessons of the highest quality. We deliver the national Swim England Learn to Swim Pathway, an all-inclusive programme designed to develop children’s skills to achieve their fullest potential. Ensuring your child learns to swim could not only save their life but can open up a world of opportunities for social and health benefits.
