Learn to swim with Swimming Academy

You can learn to swim at any age. For those wanting to start swimming we offer learn swim classes for all age groups from parent & baby through to adults. All of our lessons are taught by qualified instructors who will help to develop confidence both in and around the water.

Swimming Academy

Our lessons are delivered under the Swimming Academy brand and follows the Swim England, 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 Swim England Learn to Swim Programme guides your child through ten clearly defined stages, and there’s a foundation level to get babies as young as six-months-old started. All of the Swim England Learn to Swim Programme is supported by the Kellogg’s Swim England 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/guardians will be able to access information about your child’s swimming lessons including:

  • 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

For more information contact us.

1-to-1 Lessons

Lessons can be enjoyed as a group, on a 1-to-1 or a 2-to-1 basis. Contact us to book individual lessons.

Adult Lessons

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.

We now offer a range of gentle and more fitness orientated classes including Aqua Jog, Aqua Fitness and Aqua Circuits.

Here are some of our current sessions, but do check out our timetable for the full list of workout classes.

Aqua Fit

An aerobics session in the pool that can maintain and improve stamina, strength and suppleness as well as increase cardiovascular fitness. Unlike aerobics on land Aqua Fit is low-impact and the cushioning effect of the water protects joints in the spine, ankle, hip and knees. It is suitable for people of all ages and abilities as participants can work at a variety of levels by increasing effort and using resistive equipment.

Aqua Zumba

Known as the Zumba “pool party,” Aqua Zumba gives new meaning to the idea of an invigorating workout. Splashing, stretching, twisting, even shouting, laughing, hooting and hollering are often heard during an Aqua Zumba class. Integrating the Zumba formula and philosophy with traditional aqua fitness disciplines, Aqua Zumba blends it all together into a safe, challenging, water-based workout that’s cardio-conditioning, body-toning, and most of all, exhilarating beyond belief.

You or your children can enjoy other pool based activities including parent and baby swim and Family swimming.

Aqua Babes

  • Fun toys and floats for children to enjoy with their parent.
  • Swim Teacher on poolside for tips and advice if desired.

Here’s what other people have said about Swim4Health:

“ My confidence in water has really grown since doing Swim4Health. I now feel able to come swimming with my two year old and my five year old. “ Gina, 34, full-time mum.

“ I always thought of exercise in water as just being for people wanting gentle exercise. How wrong I was! After doing a fast paced Aqua Circuits class I feel like I have really worked out – which has helped my fitness tremendously.” Aaron, 38, retail manager and Sunday league football player.

“I enrolled on Swim4Health a few months before going on holiday abroad with my daughter, son –in-law and seven year old grandchild, Ellie. I found it helped me feel much happier with being in water – as I hadn’t swum for years. I did some aquacise classes and built up from the odd width to doing a few lengths of the pool twice a week. On holiday I went in the pool every day with Ellie and loved it ! I would have probably just sat by the pool and watched her if I hadn’t done Swim4Health. It really helped me find my water-wings!” Daphne, 66, retired factory worker.
