About Us...

Jorvik Swim Academy is a local teaching scheme run under the ASA "Learn-to-Swim" scheme.

The academy has drawn many customers through it's exceptional ratios during classes and friendly atmosphere, which combines experienced teachers and in-water assistants currently swimming and competing who have a desire to give something back to the younger generation.

Class hours and times

The swim academy runs between 1215 and 1430 on Sundays. Terms are normally 7 weeks long and we try to line these up with school half terms as much as possible.

The swimmers are divided into classes which run at separate times, to make sure they get the best teaching experience.

Stages 1 & 2 have 45 minute lessons and stages 3 and up have a one hour lesson.

If you are unsure which stage your child is at we offer a free assessment, please just email us at enquiries@jorvikswimacademy.co.uk.
