We aim to growing alternative community swimming classes and activities following our launch but initially our main focus will be on the above classes.

Why us?

Our swimming academy is due to launch in September 2021 and is based in the heart of Calderstones School. We aim to serve our local communities with excellent swimming provision, aided by professional and experienced coaches who always strive to develop our swimmers. 

Our pool is a well-maintained facility measuring 20m x 8m with male, female and disabled changing facilities. We ensure our classes are kept at sensible capacities to enable our swimmers to receive the dedication they deserve when it comes to either learning to swim or enhancing their current swimming ability levels.

 All profits generated through our swimming academy are reinvested back into our facility and the overall education of our students at Calderstones School. Not only are you therefore receiving first class swimming coaching by being part of Calderstones Swimming Academy, you are also assisting us with our main objective as a school; providing the very best educational standards we possibly can and ensuring our children are given the best opportunities in life.

Our swimming academy is a new and exciting journey for us and we would love you to join us on this journey.
