Learn to swim

Achieving my next badge

Learning to swim is an essential life skill. 

If you can swim you can enjoy all of the exciting activities that the water has to offer.  We offer lessons for all ages and all of our lessons are taught by qualified teachers.  We work to the National Governing Body for Swimming’s (ASA) Learn to Swim Pathway in all of our sessions.

Pre-school lessons

Sessions are aimed at babies and toddlers aged between 0-5 years old and aim to build the foundation for a lifelong love of water.

Swimming Lessons for School-age Children

Seven stages of fun and exciting lessons developing all of the skills needed for children to be competent, confident and safe in the water.

Aquatic Skills Lessons

When your child has completed stage 7 of the Learn to Swim Pathway they will have the opportunity to choose from a number of other aquatic activities such as Competitive Swimming, Rookie Lifesaving, Synchronised Swimming and Water Polo. (Please note, activities vary between sites).

Adult Swimming Lessons

Adult lessons are available for all abilities whether you have a fear of the water, haven’t been swimming since school or if you want to refine your technique ready for an event.

A member of our team will give you advice on which lesson would suit your needs.

Diving Lessons

Divers build on skills learned during the Learn to Swim Framework Stages 1-7, working towards stages 8-10. To qualify for these lessons, children should have gained Stage 7 of the Learn to Swim Awards. They cover areas such as the diving hand grab, the concept of a dive, floats, glides and movements in the water. There is also poolside work to refine the basic body positions for diving.
