Swimming Lessons In Rossendale

At Rossendale Leisure Trust, we are dedicated to providing swimming lessons in Rossendale to the highest quality. Accordingly, the Swim Academy launched in January 2018 and utilises the STA’s International Learn to Swim Programme (ILSP), while using STA’s wealth of experience to provide excellent standards of swimming tuition going forward.

The Swim Academy ensures effective progress for your child by offering 50 weeks of teaching per year, as well as the opportunity to further develop skills through one-to-one swimming lessons and exciting aquatic activities such as Junior lifeguarding programmes.

    "I brought my son for his first swim before he started his lessons with school. I was very impressed with how organised and clean everything was and the lifeguard took the time to speak to my son about what to expect when he came with school and it was a pleasant experience for him. He’s been since with school and thoroughly enjoyed it. Thank you!"
