Nigel about us

Our Swimming Pool

Penguins Swimming Academy’s swimming lessons are based at Leicester Grammar School in Great Glen. We believe our pool is the perfect environment for your child to both be introduced to swimming, and train towards more competitive swimming.

Quiet Environment

Its always bright with ceiling height windows spanning 2 walls of the pool. The pool has naturally good acoustics so is relatively quiet with minimal echoing, much less intimidating for our young swimmers.

Competitive Opportunities

Immediately after some days of lessons the Academy Tigers train. This offers a brilliant opportunity for parents and children of our Academy to experience and introduce themselves to competitive swimming.

Private Pool

When we run our lessons, the whole 25m pool is dedicated solely to our Academy.

Great Location

Our pool is easy to access with ample free parking.
