Jesmond Aqua School LogoAt Jesmond Aqua School we offer a competitive programme of swimming lessons for children from 4 months old to adults.

Our programme follows the ASA learn to swim framework. All our instructors are ASA qualified under British Swimming and CRB checked so you can rest assured that your child is in capable professional hands.



Welcome to Jesmond Pool and Gym, an award winning social enterprise operating as a charity since our reopening in 1992. We are dedicated to working to promote health and fitness in the community across all ages from children and students through to older adults and work with local GPs to facilitate access to our activities and classes.

In our 22m pool we offer lane and family swimming sessions, aqua fit classes, Masters sessions, pool parties, mermaid experiences and chill out sessions. Jesmond Aqua School offers private and group swimming lessons for children and adults. We deliver RLSS accredited lifeguard courses on a regular basis.

In addition to the pool, we have 2 gyms ‘The Basement Gym’ and ‘The Poolside Gym’. The Basement gym houses a variety of different equipment from a range of cardiovascular equipment and weight stack machines to free weight bars and dumbbells.

The Poolside Gym was refurbished in 2019 with all new hi-tech equipment including cardiovascular equipment , weight stack machines and even a sledge. Our in house personal trainer can provide guided sessions in the gyms and our expert in exercise for older adults runs dedicated sessions for the over 50s.

In our upstairs activity room, we run a range of different exercise classes delivered by expert teachers many of which moved online during lockdown. From children’s dance classes to Tai Chi we hope to cater for all tastes. In addition the Jesmond Joggers run out of the pool providing a collegiate group for keen runners around the community. The activity room also hosts a variety of other activities including childrens’ parties
Jala Therapies, hosted in the pool building, provides a range of massage and relaxation treatments.

Jesmond Pool and Gym is a charity. All charities have a board of trustees, individuals who have independent control over, and responsibility for, a charity’s management and administration. Being a trustee offers opportunities to use your skills and experience effectively and get involved in the future of Jesmond Pool and gym, working together with staff. We are always looking for customers who might be interested in becoming trustees. You would be expected to attend monthly board meetings (usually on a Sunday evening), other occasional meetings, and read papers in preparation for meetings. If you would like to find out more, get in touch with our chair at:


“Re the pool generally – the current system for adult swimming is excellent and the staff have really been on top of it since the very start – I have been telling everyone I know how good it is.

I also know that some of my fellow swimmers are coming from Durham/Middlesborough/Heydon Bridge because their council (or other) run pools are not open. Like Jesmond Library, Jesmond Pool & Gym is very much at the leading edge – we are lucky to have it!”
