Swimming programmes

We have been delivering swimming lessons for over 20 years, providing a positive learning environment for children and adults to develop their swimming ability.

We make swimming fun and enjoyable whilst building confidence in the water. We work in partnership with the Swim England (previously known as ASA) to deliver the nationally recognised Swim England Learn to Swim Framework. Lessons delivered in this way use fun and games to take children from their first splash to full competence in the pool.

Adult's lessons

We offer lessons for complete beginners through to advanced. Please note that dates, times and course length may vary according to school term dates, pool availability and closures.
