Why choose Swim Academy?

Children of all abilities love the Puddle Ducks Swim Academy! 

Suitable for primary-school aged children between 4 to 10 years old, we teach a natural and smooth swimming style, starting with simple skills that we build on in line with your child's physical ability and confidence. This is balanced with fun activities to develop skills including life-saving, floating and surface-diving.

Whether your child has swum in our Baby and Pre-School classes or has only ever dabbled with the family, we'll have a class that's just right for them.

As well as our successful, child-led approach to swimming, you might be interested in:

  • Convenience  - we swim at 4 different pools and offer classes across weekends and weekdays throughout Dorset.
  • Start tomorrow! - no need to wait to start swimming, where there is space, you can begin your classes immediately.
  • Relax - your place is guaranteed - once you've joined, there is no need to worry about re-booking every term, your child's place will automatically be renewed.
  • Courtesy classes - let us know you can't make a class and you can book a place at any other class, at your usual pool or elsewhere (T&C apply)
  • My Puddle Ducks account - 24/7 online access to your child's swimming details - see which milestones they've hit, check class dates, tell us about a holiday, ask your teacher a question and much more.

What Our Customers Think


Laura is an amazing teacher and has a relaxed warm approach putting any child she teaches at ease. Our son had never even been in a pool and would run of from even a small pool shaking and upset, Laura has made him feel so secure and with patience and reassurance, without him realising Laura was getting him used to the pool water. Every week he looks toward to going to Laura’s lessons and is lovely to watch him grow with confidence and eager to learn. I know that any challenges his will face with his learning that Laura will get him through it. Laura recognises each child is different and works with them at their pace but the class are doing the same it all works very well, and the lesson well thought out. Nikki, Cameron’s Mum
