At GL1 we take being able to swim really seriously. With our Swim School, we offer swimming lessons 7 days a week, 50 out of 52 weeks a year – meaning that even with your busy lives, there will be a day and time that works with you and your family.

Here at GL1 we follow the ASA Learn to swim pathway. This programme is all inclusive and takes your child all the way from their first lesson to being confident and competent in the water, whilst at the same time being great fun!

It’s doesn’t stop there – if swimming becomes a passion, there are opportunities to continue in other advanced aquatic sports such as competitive swimming, snorkelling, waterpolo, diving, synchronised swimming, rookie lifeguarding and more.


Children attending these lessons will receive badges and certificates as they work their way through the stages.

We take children from 4 months for our pre-school and toddler lessons and 5 years for our after school and weekend lessons.

Whether you’re a Swim School parent or you are part of Swim School yourself, you can track your weekly progress using our Home Portal here.

Get your children ready for your holidays by learning to snorkel at one of our Junior snorkelling lessons! These take place during the school holidays and one of the key elements of the course is fun!

There are seven levels to complete the course and get a certificate, not to forget being able to call themselves a Dolphin Snorkeller!
