White Oak Leisure Centre runs a full programme of over 40 swimming classes and courses designed for everyone from the babe in the arms to the adult non-swimmer. Taught by our experienced and qualified instructors, our trained team of staff will be pleased to help you select the class or course most suitable for you or a member of your family.

Our Swimming Academy is a programme based on the nationally recognised STA scheme, which includes a wide range of water confidence and stroke improvement activities for children and adults. The STA, who are the only swimming organisation that incorporators a comprehensive water safety programme into its teaching and learn to swim qualifications, believe that the number one reason for teaching water safety is to save lives by reducing the number of deaths by drowning.
