Swimming Academy


The Cranleigh School Swimming Academy is based at Cranleigh School’s indoor 25-metre pool, and runs on Saturday mornings during term time and various evenings thoughout the week.

There are classes to suit all abilities, from Armbands to Competitive Development Coaching.  We aim to have no more than 7 swimmers per lesson and at the beginner levels we have an extra assistant in the water.  All swimming instructors are qualified with the ASA or STA (or both).

Sessions are held throughout each term and new swimmers are invited to book a free trial lesson.
