The Blue Coat School

The Blue Coat School, Somerset Road, Edgbaston, Birmingham, West Midlands B17 0HR.

The Blue Coat School swimming pool is a great site to use as the depth varies allowing us to teach a variety of ages / abilities and provide loads of room for the swimmers.  The site is clean, and offers great facilities that include a reception areas, cafe and multi changing rooms.

At Diamond Swim Academy our focus is on quality rather than quantity and, therefore, our classes have no more than six pupils at a time and also provide a 10 minute gap between lessons to allow for communications between teachers and parents/guardians.

We will be running lessons, camps and other aquatic opportunities throughout the term time and also within the half term and summer holidays. Please do ask for more details and keep a eye on our website for updates.

We run all stages from Duckling Beginners to Stage 10 and offer provision with a number of teachers.
