Teaching Swimmers since 2015

Dolphin Academy is a family owned and ran swim school in Oldham, Bury and Ashton-under-Lyne. Dolphin Academy was started with a vision to provide top quality swimming lessons for children of all ages, standards and backgrounds, whilst also creating a fun environment for children to learn. After assessing the standard of several council lessons, and also those of our competitors in the private sector, we knew we could make an instant impact with our unique teaching style and our highly qualified, experienced and friendly swimming teachers.
