The pool for families

The Academy’s pool facilities include an experience shower, sauna and steam room which, along with our spa pool, is the perfect way to unwind and relax after a swim in our 4-lane pool. There is also a separate baby pool where parents and our younger members can enjoy time together in the water. In the interest safety, all our members and guests must adhere to our pool rules and child safeguarding guidelines.

Harrogate School of Swimming at The Academy

Harrogate School of Swimming is the new member-led swimming school at The Academy Health Club.

We believe that Harrogate School of Swimming is one of the leading swim schools in the area offering an outstanding development scheme for children.

Following the British Amateur Swimming Association (ASA) Learn to Swim Framework, group sizes are small (maximum 4 children per class) so that each child receives the attention they deserve, which enables them to progress at their own pace. Tuition is 'hands on' with the extra security of having the teacher in the water at the early stages of swimming.
