You can learn to swim at any age. All of our lessons are taught by qualified instructors who will help to develop confidence both in and around the water.
If you have a fear of the water, can’t get your face wet or panic just thinking about the deep end then it’s easy to think swimming is not for you.
But if you learn to swim you can have fun in the water with your friends, children and grandchildren. You can also make a splash in the water while on holiday.
The important thing to know is that you are not alone. One in five adults across the country can't swim - but it's never too late to learn. Most pools offer adult classes in a friendly and supportive environment.
The best thing to do is contact us for information on lessons for all ages.
If you are unsure about starting lessons, ask if you can watch a class or two to get a better idea of whether it's for you or ask to speak with one of the teachers.
Most lessons take things at a slow pace - starting off with teaching you to how to stand up and regain your feet, float and swim without fear before being taught specific strokes.

Children's Swimming Lessons
Our lessons are delivered under the Swimming Lessons brand and follows the Amateur Swimming Association's (ASA) Learn to Swim framework. This uses fun and games to take children from the first splash to full competence in the pool and will ultimately help your child develop confidence in the water.
The ASAs Learn to Swim Programme guides your child through ten clearly defined stages. All of the ASA Learn to Swim Programme is supported by the Kellogg's ASA Awards scheme.
Reflecting our commitment to continuously improving the delivery of swimming lessons, we are investing in the latest technology to record the performance of children during their lessons.
Through an internet based Home Portal parents and guardians will be able to access information about your child’s swimming lessons including:
- Assess your child’s performance against the key competencies for their course level (e.g. Swim 100m efficient backstroke)
- A rating from the teacher on how they are doing against this competency (e.g. Needs practice / Fair / Good)
- Notification of when your child is ready to move up a level and the ability to choose from the available times for your child to move into
- Record of all assessments and pass dates for each level
