We believe in delivering the highest quality Childs swim lessons, that is why we deliver our Childrens lessons using the STA Learn to Swim Programme which allows your child to develop 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, we understand that your reason for learning to swim will be personal to you, that is why we ensure that we take a tailor made approach that is designed around your aims and goals. Before you embark on your swimming journey our head coach will have a detailed conversation with you to ensure that your program is designed to suit your needs! So no matter your level be that a beginner swimmer or someone looking to improve performance, We want to ensure you look forward to your sessions with us, and feel that you are receiving a service that is specific to you and your needs.

Richard is a very good coach.He explains everything clearly and empowers you to push on and attain your swimming goals whatever they may be.I was a decent swimmer before taking lessons under Richards guidance and my stroke and technique have been improved greatly thanks to his tuition and knowledge.
