Portland Swim School

Our Swim School

The Portland Centre delivers excellent swimming lessons for children & adults.

Our lessons start from the age of 6 months and follow the Swim England Learn To Swim Programme:

The Swim England Learn to Swim Programme

  1. Pre-School Framework – This Framework is aimed at babies and toddlers aged between 0-5 years old. It helps to build the foundation for a lifelong love of water.
  2. Learn to Swim Framework – This Framework is made up of the seven stages of learning to swim, which develop confident and able swimmers using fun and enjoyment to engage learners.
  3. Aquatic Skills Framework – This Framework is made up of three advanced stages, from eight to ten. These build sport specific skills for the other aquatic disciplines, Water Polo, Diving and Synchronised Swimming.
  4. Adult Swimming Framework – This Framework is suitable for older teenagers and adults of all ages and aims to improve confidence and technique, whatever their swimming ability.

Children gain awards as they progress through the stages. We believe in small class sizes to ensure every child gets the very best tuition from our Swim England qualified teachers. Our classes run during term time only giving the children much needed rest to aid in their swim development. We also offer adult classes which are tailored to your individual needs and are taught in a very relaxed environment. So whether you are a beginner or just wanting to improve your stroke Portland is the perfect place for you.

All swim school members receive FREE general swimming!
