Project Description

A Sport for Life

To teach your children the lifesaving skill of being able to swim is so important to us – WHY? Well 585 people drowned in the UK in 2018 with DROWNING being the third highest cause of death in CHILDREN!

As well as saving lives we recognise that swimming is a great way for all the family to have FUN together.

We have partnered with the National Governing Body for Swimming – Swim England – to help us to help you to teach you or your children to swim and with our experience of teaching 1,500 weekly swimming lessons just at Cygnet – we are definitely the ‘go to’ place.

Swimming lessons are currently only available at Cygnet.

Our programme of lessons at both Cascades and Cygnet Leisure Centres cater for all ages – from 4 months to Adults, Rookie Lifeguard and a specialised programme for those who are aquaphobic (have a fear of water) – click below to see the lesson stages below.


With our great Team of Teachers – all motivated, trusted and highly qualified – we GUARANTEE we will teach you or your children to swim.

We also offer a great 1-to-1 swimming lesson programme – submit your enquiry below and we will quickly get you started.


You can even monitor your children’s performance through our Course Pro online service – download the Course Pro App on you phone or register below.

What our members are saying about us …..

I wanted just wanted to say how impressed I was with my daughters first swimming lesson. The organisation and professional manner of the staff was very reassuring, consider the difficult situation, I think they did an amazing job. My daughter really enjoyed it and actually said that she wishes she could go everyday!


Oh wow took my Grandson Clark for his first swimming lesson in 6 months today well what work and care was in place.  Each teacher was there to greet the children, I was a bit apprehensive as he had gone up a class and unsure he was ready – it was amazing staff seating taking/ collecting all perfection. I think It’s the first place Ihave been where I cannot fault your attention to what is needed.  So well done Cygnets and all the staff one very happy child being back in the water.


I just wanted to say that I thought the team did a fantastic job in juggling all the new changes and getting the kids to the pool safely last week! My kids were all quite anxious before the lesson after not going for ages and not being so familiar with Cygnets but came out smiling and loved it!
