We are a family business which is run by Katy Sexton MBE and her husband.
Katy is a Portsmouth girl who is a double Olympian and former World and Commonwealth champion swimmer. Being Portsmouth born and bred, Katy wants to give something back to her local community. This will involve her taking an active role in delivering some of the lessons.
At the Academy, we feel it is important for all to be able to swim, be water safe, as we live on the coast, and it is a great way to stay fit and healthy.
The Academy caters for children and adults of all ages and abilities. The aim is to run a high level of tuition at a good price, but most of all making learning fun.
We follow the STA ( SWIMMING TEACHERS ASSOCIATION ) which is well structured and nationally recognized. It allows the swimmer to develop all aquatic skills and obtain awards for their achievements along the way. They must also attain certain skills within each level before they can advance to the next stage.
