Our Swim School is one of the best in North Cornwall, and our highly experienced and qualified Swimming Teachers provide the perfect environment for your child to develop their confidence and competence in the water. Our group lessons run on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. We follow the Swim England syllabus designed to reward and encourage children to progress safely. You can purchase certificates and badges at each stage of your child’s progress to motivate them on their swim journey.

We believe that it’s never too late to learn to swim so we also offer adult swimming lessons.

In addition to group lessons, we can also offer one-to-one lessons – perfect for swimmers of all ages - to help improve technique, stamina, or confidence. Please contact us to arrange this.

Parent & Baby Swim

Research shows that children who learn to swim at a young age, reach many developmental milestones earlier than normal. Swimming not only helps develop our physical being, but it also helps to reduce our stress levels and increases our Love hormone (Oxytocin) - essential for building strong bonds with your child. Our Baby classes cater for ages 4-12m and our Toddler classes for ages 12-35m. The swim lessons will be for small groups of a maximum of 6 pairs and are designed to build the foundations for safe, confident and happy swimmers. Lessons run weekly for 50 weeks of the year, last for 30 mins and cost £30 per month.
