About Us


For the past 25 years, T.J Dolphins Swim School has been at the heart of swimming in Wigan.


Having taught thousands of children how to swim, we have established ourselves as the best ‘learn to swim’ programme in the area. We are located at ‘St Wilfrids C Of E Primary Academy’ in Standish, which has the perfect pool for our swimming lessons.


With T.J Dolphins, you can expect high-quality lessons from experienced and trained teachers; all teachers possess a ‘Level 2 Swim Teaching Certificate’ and enhanced DBS check as well as regular training and professional development.


The Team

Harry comes from a family of swimming teachers. Harry worked at T.J Dolphins in 2015 as a swim teacher whilst pursuing a career as a professional jazz musician. He also learnt to swim at T.J Dolphins when he was a child!


Charlotte first started working for T.J Dolphins 8 years ago: initially as a receptionist and then becoming the manager. Growing up in Standish, Charlotte also learnt to swim at T.J Dolphins when she was a child! Since then, she has been working as a professional marketer in London.
