We are a SwimMark accredited club. SwimMark is about creating the best possible swimming experience for all. SwimMark Essential Club is accredited to clubs that have measures in place to achieve good governance, grow membership, develop volunteers and ensure their activity is sustainable and in line with their club objectives. It is accredited every two years.

We are also a learning destination for the Children's University where our youngsters can 'travel' with their Passport To Learning. We provide high-quality learning activities and experiences which have passed the Children's University's own quality-assurance process. We will stamp your passport after every mini water polo or swimming session. Later you can become an assistant swimming or water polo teacher; these voluntary positions can be used to move up through the CU undergraduate levels.

Then, once you are 16, you can move on to gain all kinds of water-related qualifications which may lead to part-time or even full-time employment.
