Swimming Lessons

Providing affordable, flexible and fun lessons to swimmers of all ages and abilities.


Our lessons run out of the Castle View Community and Fitness Centre and Thornhill School. We aim to provide affordable, flexible and fun lessons to swimmers of all ages and abilities.

We run three blocks of lessons per year correlating to school terms. Enrolment for each term opens about one week before the previous terms holidays commence (for example to start lessons in January enrolment will commence the week before children break up for Christmas). Where spaces are available enrolments continue up until the half term of each term.
