A Swim School Where Quality Matters

Dolphin Academy is a family owned and ran swim school in Oldham, with a second venue in Ashton. 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 on this sector with our unique teaching style and our highly qualified, experienced and friendly swimming teachers.

Swimming Lessons for Growth and Safety

Water safety is an essential life skill that we believe all children should learn. Every year hundreds of children drown because they don’t know how to swim and investing in high-quality swimming lessons might make a real difference for you and your family. Our swim school knows the physical, mental and social benefits of swimming. Our learners become faster, stronger, more confident and make friends. We know that swimming is not just about exercise.
