At Aspire Leisure Centre we provide a calm and relaxed environment where anyone can learn to swim or improve their technique. We have a variety of classes and group sessions for all ages, ranging from babies to adults.

We also provide group and one to one swimming lessons for disabled adults and children in our wheelchair accessible swimming pool.

All of our swimming instructors are qualified to Swim England standard, or equivalent, so you can feel secure in the knowledge that pupils are in safe hands and learning from the experts.
