Child learning to swim in a swimming pool


Swim! is our bespoke learn-to-swim programme designed for 3+ years old and is delivered by expert teachers. We have small class sizes and teachers in the water with beginners. Adopting a child-led approach makes learning this vital life skill fun and progressive. All swimmers’ achievements are celebrated with certificates and badges. There will be a dedicated business manager on site to answer any questions regarding the programme too.

Founded by Olympians Becky Adlington OBE and Steve Parry MBE, Swim! strives to ensure that every child learns this invaluable skill in an environment that is both enjoyable and safe. We can’t wait to start your child’s swimming journey with us.
