The Junction Swimming Academy offers a full programme of swimming lessons throughout the year for adults and children aged from six months upwards.

Our aims are to progress confidence in the water as well as learning what a vital life skill swimming can be. The Junction Sports & Leisure Centre has always prided itself on providing swimming tuition of the highest quality.

In January 2019 The Junction implemented the International Learn to Swim Programme (ILSP) drawing on the STA’s wealth of experience to provide exemplary standards of swimming tuition going forward. Our aim for all children participating in our lessons is for them to enjoy the water and realise the fun that can be had in a safe environment by building confidence in their own ability, whilst learning that ever-important essential life skill. We continually assess the children and have the warmest pool in the area.
