Group swimming lessons

Welcome to Splash Academy 

 Swimming is both a fun way to stay active but more importantly could save a life. We believe that everybody should have the opportunity to learn to swim and one of the main Splash Academy's objectives is to offer a fun and exciting way to learn to swim for everyone.

We are proud to be in partnership with the National Governing Body ‘Swim England’ and follow the Swim England Syllabus.

Your child will be rewarded with Badges and Certificates when successfully completing each stage, these are included in your Splash Academy Membership. The teacher will produce your child with a badge slip, that will need to be handed into reception, this will enable us to update your child’s records and a certificate will be generated for the following week.



As your child improves and achieves the criteria set within each stage, they will start to progress through the programme. This process will be determined by their swimming teacher providing your child with a transfer slip. Once you hand this transfer slip to reception the process of transferring you child to their new class can take place.  



If your circumstances alter and it is necessary for your child to change day or time, please contact reception to complete a Transfer Slip to change your class. Please note that class changes are subject to availability, every effort will be made to accommodate your request.
