The AcademySport swimming poolAcademySport Swim School follows the teaching principles set out by the National Plan for Teaching Swimming, we deliver each stage as set out by the Amateur Swimming Association [ASA], and all children are certified at completion of each of our 7 stages, click here for details.

Our ‘Little splashers’ sessions encourage early years swimmers to develop basic motor skills through enjoyment of the water.

Fundamental movement skills which build confidence, buoyancy, stroke technique and safety awareness can then be developed from stages 1–7 of our Swim School courses.

We liaise with many swim clubs so that swimmers of appropriate standard can be put straight in contact with a club for fundamental sport skills and more competitive training.

To apply for a place please download our SwimSchool application form and hand it in at Reception. We give children (aged 5–16) enrolled on a course free swimming membership for the duration of the Swim School term so they can practise their new skills as much as they like!

We also offer private swimming lessons on a 1–to–1 and 2–to–1 basis. These sessions are more focused and suit swimmers requiring individual attention. Please enquire at Reception for more details.

SwimSchool MAX!

During the holiday's we usually run an intensive course designed to improve your kids' confidence and ability in the water, in just one week!

Adult Swimming Lessons
Here at AcademySport we recognise that being able to swim is an invaluable life skill that it’s never too late to learn. If you want to learn to swim or just aren't very confident we have fantastic coaches on hand who can teach adult non-swimmers to swim or improve their current level in 1–to–1 or group sessions.
