About Us...

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

The academy has drawn many customers through it's exceptional ratios during classes and friendly atmosphere which combines experienced teachers and in-water assistants.

Class hours and times

The swim academy runs between 12.25 and 14.00 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 Stages 1 to 7 and upon completion of Stage 7 will move to the Viking Awards.

Stages 1 - 6 have 45 minute lessons and Stage 7 and the Viking Awards have a one hour lesson.

If you are unsure which stage your child will swim at we would be very pleased to offer a free, no obligation assessment.  Please email enquiries@jorvikswimacademy.co.uk.
