Glovers Swim School offer swimming lessons and develop water confidence for babies, children and adults of all abilities in the Preston, Lancashire area.

The school was founded in 1983 by Diane Glover, and her expertise and approach have developed a reputation for swimming tuition that is unsurpassed in the area. As ex-competition swimmers, her children Paula and Thomas draw on their experience and lifelong passion to teach swimming to a high standard in a safe, gentle and encouraging manner

Years of experience has helped us to understand just what works best, helping nervous non swimmers or adults who have suffered a trauma in the water at an earlier stage in life. We love to see our pupils of all ages gradually getting a 'feel' for the water, and starting to build confidence and enthusiasm for swimming.

Our structured and progressive swim programme has been carefully devised to meet the needs of all who want to be swimmers. We have a number of different venues throughout Lancashire.
