Achieve new lengths

At Sport & Fitness, we believe swimming isn’t just a sport, it is also a vital life skill. Learning to swim as a child means that not only do you learn this skill early, you then have a lifetime to enjoy the health and fitness benefits of swimming.

Our teachers are dedicated to producing strong, confident swimmers using the Swim England Learn to Swim pathway.

The University of Birmingham Sport have been delivering swimming lessons for many years, seeing children progress from complete beginners to as far as national level swimmers!
