Swim School

There is no better form of all round exercise than swimming. Learning to swim can lead to a whole new lifestyle. No one is ever too old to learn to swim, be it for exercise, relaxation or personal achievement. Our swimming lesson program offers something for everyone.

Canons aims to provide a quality service for children and adults of all abilities. We employ a team of fully qualified, professional and highly experienced instructors. Small classes, a friendly atmosphere and co-operative staff are guaranteed!

The Kellogg's ASA (Amateur Swimming Association) Scheme is the most successful in British amateur sport. The program we offer is the ASA Water Skills and Challenge Awards: take a look at an overview of our lower grading system.

Swim School Terms & Conditions

The swimming ability of each pupil will be assessed the first eight weeks of term. The swimming instructor will complete a progress review sheet during the 10th week of lessons. This review will inform the pupil of how they have performed and whether they are ready to move to the next stage. Places for the following term of lessons can be booked during weeks 11 and 12 of term. Week 13 is fun week!

To help ensure we maintain the highest possible standards we have put together a set of terms and conditions which we ask swimming lesson customers to read and follow at all times.
