Colfe's Swim Academy


Here at Colfe’s Swim Academy, we run a variety of swimming lessons of which include: Weekly Group lessons, Private lessons and Holiday Intensive lessons. We cater for Stages 1-10 (4-15 yrs) as well as Adult lessons (16 yrs+).

We follow the Swim England, Learn to Swim pathway and assessments are completed on a weekly basis, meaning pupils don’t have to wait until the end of a term to be moved up if they are ready. More information on the pathway can be found here.

Class numbers are kept low and all stages up to stage 5 have both a teacher and assistant to give pupils plenty of attention and help.

A customer portal is available for all swimmers within our lessons, on this parents can track progress through the stages as well as top up lessons online.

We pride ourselves on the quality of our swimmers and refuse to rush pupils through the program without the right knowledge and experience needed to be a fully rounded swimmer.
