Adult Swimming

PoolSkool specialises in Adult swimming lessons. The experienced staff will be able to teach the nervous beginner or an Adult who just wants to improve their stroke. The pool is kept at 90 degrees and is private which is the perfect combination to learn to swim. The lessons are held during the day, evenings and weekends so there is plenty of opportunity for the busy adult. The lessons can be booked for 30 minutes or an hour. We also provide training, for specific goals. For example, sub aqua, snorkelling, training, triathlon, or test for specific jobs.

Please contact us at PoolSkool where we will be happy to answer any questions.


“I just wanted to say a huge thank you for this morning, and I’m very glad I got to have you teaching me.  I can honestly say I never never been so relaxed and confident in water EVER than I was this morning.  Perfect!!”

“Just a quick email to say how pleased Steve and I are to have found Poolskool. I couldn’t believe how quickly Steve’s swimming came along from nothing, in such a short space of time, especially being so nervous to begin with. The instructor certainly put him at ease though and was consistently encouraging and supportive each week; we thought she was fabulous! Steve seems to have found a new passion for the water; we’ll certainly look forward to putting in more hours of practice to carry on all the hard work and keep on improving! We have already been raving about the brilliant team at Poolskool to all our friends and family! Many thanks again.”

“I am 62 years old and have never learnt to swim. I believe the main reason for this stems from negative experiences of being taken to the local swimming pool by my primary school teachers.  Earlier this year I plucked up the courage to take swimming lessons with Pool Skool. It’s turned out to be one of the best decisions I have ever made.  The patience, encouragement and skills and experience of my tutor Gaye has enabled me to overcome those mental obstacles that have been in place for over 50 years.  If you want to learn to swim or simply improve your swimming then I recommend Pool Skool.”

“I had 5 days of adult improver lessons and I just wanted to let you know they really paid off – I have been in Turkey, sea and pool swimming and am now swimming much further without anything like as much effort or strain.”

“I enjoyed my lessons very much once I got over my fear of water. I am by no means a perfect swimmer but can now do a reasonable breaststroke and a little front crawl and do have the confidence to try backstroke. My fitness has improved overall and I have been able to do 14X25 lengths in a public pool. Not bad for someone of my age who couldn’t swim at all 2 years ago!

“Thanks to my teacher (he was marvellous) for his patience and understanding. I would have no hesitation to recommend PoolSkool to anyone who wants to learn to swim.”
