About Swimcentral

Welcome to Swimcentral where we are proud to deliver excellent swimming tuition, provided by dedicated instructors. The class sizes are small and the lessons are fun and engaging for the students.

Swimcentral teaches water confidence, strokes and aquatic skills to children and adults. We are known throughout Bath for the highest quality teaching and the protection and safety of our swimmers.

All our teachers are fully qualified and are also trained lifeguards. Our teachers are members of the Institute of Swimming (IOS) which ensures we are up-to-date with new techniques.

Progress is monitored every lesson. Pupils who demonstrate consistency and confidence in their strokes receive their FREE certificate, badge and they move up to the next stage.

Swimcentral is different to other providers because we focus on much more than just teaching swimming. Our programmes are structured around five core competencies:

  • personal safety
  • personal growth
  • stroke development
  • water games/sports
  • rescue
