Lessons are for swimmers of all ages and abilities, with children’s classes beginning from four months old. All our swimming teachers hold Swim England or equivalent qualifications and our lessons allow students to work towards attaining badges and certificates to highlight their progress.

They’re also designed for swimmers of all ages and abilities, with classes for babies aged just four months available, all the way up to advanced lessons for teenagers and adults looking to get involved with swimming clubs and competitions. Each class lasts at least half an hour, including the taking of registers and parent handover where necessary.
