Private lessons

Are you or your child… Wanting to focus on improving a specific part of your technique? Afraid of the water? Better when taught 1-1? The private lessons programme gives an enhanced and tailored experience of our lessons, giving your child a more direct 1-1 teaching format to target their goals.

Private lessons are available for children that would benefit from 1 to 1 tuition. Moreover, the times of these sessions can be tailored to your needs through communication with your assigned swimming teacher. Please note, 2 to 1 or 3 to 1 tuition is also available.

Adult lessons

Adult Beginner sessions run on Saturdays at 11.30am and act as a great introduction to the world of swimming. This course will be beneficial for participants who are new to swimming, have a fear of water, or do not feel ready to join the Improver sessions we provide.

"The swimming teachers are very dedicated and have put in a lot of effort to teach my son to swim. He is extremely nervous in the water and it has taken him a long time but he is finally getting there"

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ - Lisa

"My two young daughters have been taking swimming lessons at the centre for several years with my 7-year-old recently joining black-hats. Every week, since you reopened after the national lock-down, I have sat along-side while my daughters have been swimming. I have interacted with many of the staff dealing with lots of children and parents, coping very well with the COVID-related circumstances and keeping the lessons running smoothly and to schedule."
