Welcome to AquaStars Swim Academy

AquaStars Swim Academy is a privately owned family run swim school which first became established in 2016 at Ladybridge High School in Bolton. We first began with just 20 members providing 1.5 hours every Saturday, however we quickly grew to include more hours to our programme and now deliver swimming lessons on Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday evenings and Saturday mornings. We offer lessons for a wide age range, children can join from 3 years old and we also offer lessons for adults.

Our classes sizes are kept small and our swimming instructors are water based for all beginners up to stage 3.

AquaStars swimming lessons are priced at £55 per term, and each term consists of 10 consecutive weeks of 30 minute lessons

  • positive review  My daughter has done really well since she started with Aquastars, has only been swimming for about 5 weeks and has made me so proud of what she had achieved. The teachers are so good with the children. If your child is a little scared of the water they won't be when they learn with Aquastars.

    positive review  Brilliant teachers who have helped my sons overcome many leaps and boundaries. This has helped them gain more confidence in life as a whole and more hungry to develop wider skills.

  • positive review  We moved to this swimming provider as my daughter had lost all confidence elsewhere and refused to swim anymore. My daughter struggles with listening but the teachers here have been amazing and patient. She is now swimming without any aids and jumping in, I can’t believe the confidence she has. A huge thank you for supporting her in gaining confidence and learning to swim. My other daughter thoroughly enjoys her lessons too and has made lots of progress. Thank you!

  • 5 star review  Excellent family run swimming club. I can't recommend them highly enough. Rae and Julie have a passion for swimming and this come across in the way they teach the children. If you want your children to learn to swim and to be safe and confident around water there is no better place.
