Swimming Lessons For Children & Adults

STA Brand Ambassador

25 Years Experience

100% Level 2 Teachers

Here at Waves, we absolutely love everything about swimming!

We believe it's not just an essential life skill, but also a fantastic way to have fun with your family & friends and keep fit. We cater to everyone, so no matter the age or skill level, we've got the right swimming class for you! We run swimming lessons seven days a week during term time - we even run special crash courses during the holidays.

Our facilities range from school pools to more private settings. This means we can accommodate all kinds of swimmers, from those who might be a bit nervous in the water to those who may have additional needs and would appreciate a quieter, more personal environment. We’re really proud that many local schools trust us to deliver their curriculum swimming lessons.

Our swim school is managed by Carrie Morrison who has been involved in swim schools from a young age, founding Waves in 2018. Carrie Morrison is an STA Brand Ambassador and we follow the STA swimming programme. Carrie is also an RLSS Trainer Assessor, which means we're also ideally placed to offer training for swimming teachers and lifeguards.

Why Choose Waves?

Our Values

  • Love Learning: Swimming is a vital life skill that happens to be fun, and we're dedicated to teaching it!
  • Safety First: We're committed to creating a secure environment where everyone can safely enjoy the water.
  • Fitness & Well-being: We champion swimming because it's a fun and engaging way to stay healthy.

Our Instructors

All of our lead swimming instructors are highly trained, holding at least a Level 2 teaching qualification. In addition, the majority of our teachers possess a lifesaving certification recognised either by the STA or RLSS, so you can rest easy knowing that safety is a top priority. They refresh their safeguarding certificate regularly and also renew their enhanced DBS every 3 years.

Our Pupils

We tailor our lessons to the needs of our swimmers, reviewing progress three times a term and moving pupils onto the next stage at the point they are ready. We follow the STA Learn to Swim programme that assesses for skills, distance and technique and we award badges and certificates at certain milestones. At the end of the term, every swimmer gets the opportunity to receive an award for their achievements.

Our Reputation

We are a well-established, independent, local swim school with a great reputation. The majority of our swimmers come to us via personal recommendation and we teach whole families. Our class sizes are small, and the management team are always at the pool - they personally know the swimmers and stay up-to-date with their progress.

My daughter had her very first lesson today with Waves. The swim team were AMAZING with her, so calm and patient and really let her take her time. She absolutely loved it once she was in the water and actually cried when she had to get out & changed!! She now can’t wait for next week! We have previously tried other swim schools and honestly, she learnt more skills and had more time swimming in this first lesson than all her old lessons put together! Couldn’t be happier!

My son has had 8 lessons so far from being a non-swimmer to swimming a whole length unaided tonight! He is so happy and loves the lessons! Thank you!
