Welcome to Swim Stars School.

Swimming Lessons at Teignbridge Leisure are available at both Newton Abbot Leisure Centre and Dawlish Leisure Centre. We cater for anyone learning to swim, from babies (and their parents), to children and adults. Teignbridge Leisure follows the Swim England Learn to Swim Programme, using qualified teachers to provide important life skills to stay safe in the water. 



Both swim schools run as one; expanding your opportunities to learn this important gift for life. We operate using continuous assessments to ensure that swimmers progress through the scheme at their own pace.


A Jam Packed Membership offers the best value for money with swimming lessons and other activities included, or you can pay as you go.

The Learn to Swim Stage 1-7 Awards are divided into progressive stages. Each of the Learn to Swim Stage 1-7 Awards has a list of clear outcomes that need to be completed in order to gain each Award. Visit the Swim England Learn to Swim stages for a full breakdown.
