Swimming Centre of Excellence

At GUST, we have a simple ethos – every child should be able to swim with confidence. And when it comes to learning in a safe, fun, and friendly environment, they’ll find nowhere better to achieve that goal.


Family-run, we have our very own purpose-built Centre of Excellence for the express purpose of delivering the highest quality swimming lessons for children of all ages and abilities, from tiny babies to teenagers.


Children enjoy a vibrant and sparkling pool which is a lovely 31 degrees, while for parents every cubicle has baby change facilities. Snacks and drinks are available, and we also have our very own swim shop – all in an irresistibly bright, colourful, and caring environment.

“Eddie has had lessons at GUST Centre of Excellence since it opened, he has had a few different instructors and they have all been brilliant. When we first came I was in the pool with him and he would scream for most of the lesson, now he just has a shark fin and he jumps in, puts his face in the water and has so much confidence”

Why did we build our pool? Research has shown that one in three children are leaving primary school unable to swim. More than 70% of schools do not even implement swimming within their timetable. Also, parents often find existing leisure facilities to be outdated, both in methods and facilities.


At GUST, we see swimming not as a luxury, but a fun, vital, and potentially life-saving skill. One that will bring enjoyment, and safety, for years to come.


The ability to swim shouldn’t be lost to any child. Talk to GUST and BOOK YOUR FREE TRIAL WITH US TODAY!
