Lessons at Swimmingly are different from those offered by other swimming schools and coaches; we totally understand that learning to swim can be a challenge but taught in the right way it really doesn’t have to be difficult or stressful. And, after teaching countless adults to swim better than they ever thought possible we know exactly how to make swimming easy and enjoyable.
We work alongside you in the water so we can show you what to do and help you get it right. Most of our lessons use video for instant feedback and we’ll send you a selection of analysed videos after your session along with an individually tailored practice plan so you will know exactly what to do to keep improving your swimming after your lesson.
Our straightforward step-by-step approach combined with your own practice sessions means that you’ll learn very quickly, and if you get stuck between lessons just get in touch and we’ll happily help.

This course is aimed at adult swimmers so the minimum age is 18.
This course is suitable for people who can already swim (any stroke, anyhow) and are confident with their face in the water and in the deep end of a swimming pool. If you are not yet at this stage please get in touch with us to book some one-to-one lessons.
Yes. The course is aimed at people who can already swim a bit but want to learn or improve their front crawl. We welcome a range of abilities including people who can not swim any front crawl. You need to be comfortable putting your face in the water and swimming in the deep end.
Yes. We will teach you how to be more efficient and relaxed in the water so that you swim faster and save energy. Video analysis will show you where you can improve, and we will give you all the drills and skills needed to practice in your own time.
These sessions are about learning good technique, so we do not swim lots of lengths. This means that they shouldn’t be physically tiring. However, learning something new requires focus and concentration so sometimes people find them mentally tiring!
Please bring your swimming costume or trunks (close-fitting are better), swim cap, goggles, drink and a towel.
There is plenty of car parking at the school.
Unfortunately, refunds can’t be offered, but wherever possible we will try to accommodate you on a different course.
