Find out a little about Great Waves

Welcome to Great Waves Swimming Academy. A swimming school that provides swimmers of all ages and abilities with expert teaching and a supportive environment. Our classes have a maximum of 4 swimmers per group class, as well as 1-2-1 and 2-2-1 lessons, with instructors always teaching from within the water. We specialise in Disability and Special Educational Needs swimming lessons, whereby our experienced and committed teachers guide swimmers through their tailored and planned lessons.

We believe everyone will learn to swim, and are here to assist you on your swimming journey.

Swimming is a life and safety skill and is one of the most important skills a child can learn. It also promotes many health benefits associated with fitness, co-ordination and muscle strength. During every lesson, we will focus on water safety, stroke technique and promote fitness. In the water environment, everyone can learn to swim, have fun and keep fit!

free introductory lesson!

Swimmers learn best when taught by teachers who understand each individual in the class. We strive to ensure that every swimmer is happy and comfortable in our lessons. We offer swimmers a free trial session to ensure that parents and children alike are happy with our teaching support. The trial also enables our teachers to determine each swimmer’s ability and place everyone in a class that continually aids their water confidence and progression.
