We've developed our Swim England accredited swimming lesson programme around you and your children. It’s a fantastic experience that opens up new possibilities for everyone - whether it's starting on the swimming lesson journey, improving technique or getting more comfortable in the water.
We offer structured and progressive coaching with qualified swimming instructors. We follow the Swim England Learn to Swim Programme, and our swimmers’ progress is continually assessed. For every stage or course you complete, you'll receive a certificate and badge to acknowledge your achievement.
Why should I encourage my child to learn to swim?
Swimming is lots of fun for people of all ages and children especially love getting in the water and enjoying themselves. But it is not just fun, swimming also provides loads of health benefits which can help to keep your children healthy and happy at the same time. Swimming keeps your child’s heart and lungs healthy, improves strength and flexibility, increases stamina and even improves balance and posture. But the most important reason why swimming is an essential skill for a life is water safety - its the only sport which can save your child’s life.
