Active NAtion


At Active Nation we love teaching swimming! With over 100,000 attendances per year we pride ourselves on delivering consistently quality tuition.

We believe swimming is an essential life skill that everyone should have the opportunity to explore. Whether you’re a child or an adult, swimming can help with motor development, alleviate stress and help maintain physical and mental wellbeing.

The Swimming lessons follow the Swim England Learn to Swim Programme where students are rewarded throughout their progress. To view the swimming pathway click on this link

Lessons run throughout the year on a 50 week plan with students being continually assessed and moved through the stages at their own pace based on ability.  There is also an opportunity for parents to monitor their child’s progress on our state of the art home portal which you can access at anytime and anywhere online.

As a child’s confidence in swimming progresses there are many opportunities provided through Active Nation to pursue other interests in the aquatics discipline including Diving, Lifeguarding and Water Polo.
