Adult swimming lessons

Adult swimming lessons

It's never too late to learn how to swim, build water confidence or improve your technique, with our Learn to Swim programme for adults.

Our greatest wish is that you learn to love swimming and continue to improve. We will always work with you to encourage and support you, and move at your own pace. 

We appreciate that learning to swim as an adult takes a lot of courage, many of our students tell us they wish they had done it years ago.

Beginners: specifically designed for adults to gain water confidence, learn basic strokes and swim up to a distance of 5 metres.

Improvers: for adults who can already swim short distances (5-10m), to help develop their swimming stroke and improve their stamina.

Stroke Development: perfect for those who are wanting to perfect their technique, or maybe in training for a triathlon! These classes focus on improving your technique, strokes and breathing. Swim ability of over 25m.

We offer a variety of ways to learn to swim.

  • courses of 12 week blocks, in a group session
  • drop in sessions, taught in a group
  • one to one sessions - the focus is totally on you, and will be specifically designed around you
