It’s never too late to learn to swim 

Swimming is a key skill to have at any age; not only is it a great way of keeping fit but it’s a valuable life skill that increases safety in and around water.

Our Swim Academy programme is designed for all ages and for all abilities.

From complete beginners, those who have a fear of the water, to those that are confident in the water and want to improve stroke technique, stamina and overall ability, our fully-qualified instructors guide pupils through lessons in a fun, relaxed way.

Following the STA Adult Swimming pathway, learners will develop a wide range of swim skills and build confidence in the water.

Adult ‘Swim Start’ lessons teach non-swimmers or complete beginners vital lifesaving skills, basic swimming strokes, floatation, aquatic breathing and helps build confidence in a relaxed informal manner. 

Adult ‘Swim Better’ lessons develop effective swimming strokes, diving, and lifesaving. These informal lessons allow adults to work towards individual goals. 


Adult Swimming Lessons Waiting List 

There is currently an extremely high level of demand for swimming lessons and we are currently unable to accept new applications for swimming lessons as our waiting list is full.

Our Swim Academy team are working to offer places to those that are currently on the waiting list.

If you are currently on the waiting list, we ask that you are patient with our team as we are trying to accomodate lessons as quickly as possible, but this may take some time depending on new classes being set up and current pupils progressing through the programme. Please note that when you are on the waiting list, you do not need to complete additional enquiries – our team will action your original enquiry as soon as possible.

If you are not currently on the waiting list but are interested in swimming lessons in future, please continue to check back and we will update as soon as we are able to re-open the waiting list and can take new enquiries.

Thank you
