A complete swimming lesson programme that takes children of all abilities and experience levels and develops them to be confident and able in water.

Our aim is to teach every child to swim and achieve stage 6 of the national teaching plan by the age of 11.

Our school swimming and after school swimming programmes mirror each other  and both offer the same nationally recognised  programme and quality of teaching.

All our swimming lessons are fully inclusive.
Lessons can be adapted as necessary to help all children achieve their potential. If your child has specific needs, please discuss them with your local swim school.
