About Swim Academy

The Surrey Sports Park Swim Academy programme consists of 46 weekly swimming lessons with a 2 week break at Christmas and the summer holidays. With lessons starting at £32 per month, your child will have access to weekly tuition, be able to swim in our pool at any time to practice, and receive access to Home Portal to track progress.

Swimming lessons take place in our state-of-the-art 50m Olympic pool with a UV water treatment system that helps to keep chlorine levels low.

Swimming is an essential life skill and possibly the only sport which could save your child’s life. Our aim for Swim Academy is to help as many children as possible not only become safe swimmers, but gain the tools and skills necessary to enjoy all forms of water-based activities.

For any general enquiries, please email swimacademy@surrey.ac.uk.

    Guest Notice – Face Coverings

    From Saturday 19th September, it will be essential for every person in Surrey Sports Park’s communal areas to wear a face covering. This is in-line with the campus-wide policy introduced by the University of Surrey.

    The policy does not apply whilst taking part in sport and exercise and activity areas are exempt.

    The University considers that the responsibility of wearing a face covering sits with individuals and we expect all our staff, students and public to adhere to this requirement where possible.

    Please be mindful and respectful towards members of our community who, due to exceptional circumstances, may be unable to wear a face covering; their reasons may not be visible to others.

    Thank you,

    Surrey Sports Park
