Learn to Swim

We deliver our swimming lessons through the Swim England Learn to Swim Pathway – the most successful programme of its kind.    

Our adult swimming programme is about improving confidence, competence and technique with no age limit. It caters for every type of adult swimmer, including those who are unable to swim at all, beginners and those who are nervous about swimming. There is also support for swimmers who are coming back to swimming after a break or just those who want to improve their technique.
