Learn to Swim with SLT Swim Academy

Our fully qualified swimming instructors use the Swimming Teachers Association awards scheme. We also provide adult lessons, disability lessons, instructed Parent & Baby / Toddler STARFISH sessions and non-instructed Splash Time sessions for those aged under 5 years.
SLT’s Adult Swimming Lesson series covers basic to advanced water skills for the adult who is eager to learn to swim, improve confidence & technique or just get fit with no age limit. Our Adult Swimming Lessons understands that adults have very different needs to children when learning to swim. This is why SLT believes that everyone should have a chance to learn to swim and become the very best swimmer they can be, which is why our adult lessons give a very specific set of aims and targets for adults to follow.
