Swimtime swimming lessons are fun, safe, and rewarding.

"I would recommend Swimtime to any parent looking for excellent quality, value for money lessons for their children. Not to mention the competent, skilled staff whom my daughter adores."

Charlotte, Swimtime mum

Swimming is a life skill that everyone should possess. We take this seriously at Swimtime, but that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy yourself while you learn to swim with us.

Our lessons for children are fun, and we seek to help your child feel absolutely safe whether it’s their first lesson, their first venture into deep water, or their first time in a more challenging class. It’s our aim that your child should progress through the STA Learn to Swim Programme at their own pace, but more importantly that they develop a love for being in the water that lasts a lifetime.

If you are an adult learner, fun may not be the adjective that springs to mind when recalling your childhood lessons, but at Swimtime we think that you should enjoy your lessons just as much as our younger pupils. We want you to look forward to your time with us, and feel relaxed as you learn to swim or improve your existing swimming strokes.
