Under 3’s Lessons

Our under 3’s programme can start as early as 3 months old. Our lessons have a child-led approach where all practices are done with the upmost respect of the baby and always requires consent to be given by the child.

Over 3’s Lessons

Our role at the Academy is to develop your child into a confident swimmer, ready to progress into club swimming or any other aquatic discipline that they enjoy. We offer a seamless progression from babies through to pre-club level, in both group lessons or 1-2-1.

Adult Lessons

We offer a range of adult swimming sessions within the academy that offer physical, social, and emotional benefits. We believe being regularly active in water provides an amazing escape from the everyday stress that exists outside the pool.

"Both my children attend MJSA and I can't recommend them enough. My daughter was at waterbabies until she was 5yrs and I struggled to find a class that would let her continue on improving her swimming, but she's loving MJSA and is continuing to improve. My son's swimming was affected by covid and he was reluctant to put his face in the water when he started after turning 3yrs. He has came on so much, now happily going under to swim in only a few months. All the teachers we've had are really good with the children and they both love their lessons."


"MJSA is amazing, my 3 and 4 year old are doing amazing at learning to swim.. Both can swim with a noodle unaided. Thanks Cameron for your hard work."


"Since starting lessons at the Michael Jamieson Swim Academy, my niece’s confidence in the pool has come on so much. Since her first lesson the instructors have been so encouraging and patient, willing the class to learn new skills in the water. Couldn’t recommend more!"


"My Children have been attending Michael Jamison Swim academy for a couple of years now and have progressed so far with the guidance and support of the amazing instructors. The kids love coming to lessons. They find lessons so much fun because the instructors are very encouraging and keep things interesting. They also change things up at lessons making each lesson different from the last. We are very pleased to have chosen MJSA for our children and highly recommend. "
