All swimming lessons offered at Everyone Active leisure centres are taught by teachers holding Swim England or equivalent qualifications. Our lessons offer students the chance to work towards attaining badges and certificates to highlight their progress. We offer lessons for all ages and abilities, with children’s classes beginning from four months old.
Available all year
Sessions run for 50 weeks of the year, seven days a week, and students can enrol at any time.
Our teachers also teach other water-based activities to those with the appropriate ability level. These activities include snorkelling, synchronised swimming, diving, water polo and Rookie Lifeguard training.
All classes last at least 30 minutes, including the taking of registers and parent handover where necessary, with the exception of Rookie Lifeguard classes. We offer a variety of swimming lessons, as well as classes for other aquatic activities, the details of which are outlined below.
Swimming lessons for children
Every year, our swimming programme supports more than 110,000 children to learn this life-saving skill. Classes follow the Swim England Learn to Swim framework and students gain National Plan for Teaching Swimming (NPTS) awards, as well as those for distance swimming. Naturally, all our instructors are Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS)-checked as your child’s safety is our top priority. Your child will receive a different coloured swimming hat depending on their class level, but if they are not happy or comfortable in that class, you can request a transfer between classes at any time. If your children are enrolled on our swimming lesson programme, then you can enjoy up to 25% off your membership fee*.
Swimming lessons for adults
As well as teaching people who have never learned to swim, our lessons for adults also help more able swimmers to improve their technique and stroke . Whatever your age or ability, our swimming teachers will help you progress. Building your confidence and ability in and around water will, in turn, open up a new world of possibilities to enable you to be more active.

One-to-one swimming lessons
Our individual classes cater for one or two students at a time. These are intended to help you or your children focus on a specific requirement or area for improvement. Sessions are open to all ages and abilities.
These intensive short courses run during school holiday periods and are designed to help your children develop their skills in a short space of time. They are open to everyone, including those already on our swimming lessons programme.
