Adult Swimming Lessons

Our Adult Swim Programme is dedicated to getting adults in the pool, no matter whether you're a total beginner, or someone looking to improve technique and stroke

Our swim instructors tailor lessons to your individual needs in line with guidelines from Swim England.



Key Information

Our instructor led adult swimming lessons offer guidance to complete beginners, or those looking to improve your confidence in the water.

Each 45-minute tailored session offers support and guidance to swimmers in line with Swim England guidelines. 

  • Beginners: Suitable for nervous adults, or those just getting started on their swimming journey. If you are not confident swimming with your face in the water, or haven't yet started to learn front crawl, then these are the lessons for you. 
  • Improvers: for confident swimmers looking for stroke technique advice to help improve efficiency. Our instructors can work on breathing technique and timing and help improve your fitness in the pool. 
  • Advanced: If you are already swimming laps of the pool, but want to train for a specific event, such as a triathlon, then our advanced classes or our SwimFit sessions will be the better fit for you. 

LED members with an Aqua, Unlimited or Core membership (including swimming) are eligible to receive 1 swimming lesson a week. Alternatively PAYG members can buy blocks of lessons via reception in our Leisure Centres. 

For further information or advice, or if you'd like to book in for a taster session, please contact your local swim coordinator.

Customer stories

I want to say a massive thank you to Kevin over the past few months for teaching me how to swim and improving my confidence.


Having swimming lessons as an adult is daunting, but Kevin was very patient and encouraging. I went from barely being able to swim 10m to swimming lengths, and was able to learn all strokes...even diving!

I was the only participant for many of the lessons, even though others have said there was a waiting list. I think if you had to book onto the lessons week on week like the gym group classes then this would be fair to all, and ensure more people can benefit from Kevin’s classes!

I’ve always found all the staff at Led very kind and helpful so thank you.
