Charleston Academy’s Scuba Diving Club is open to all pupils. At present we have 15 pupils who regularly attend our club ranging from S2 to S5, ex-pupils and their parents.

The Diving Club meets once a week for pool training and theory lessons. This important training allows our club members to scuba dive out in “open water” where they will continue to develop their knowledge, skills and understanding. Once they have completed the course, pupils are presented with a certificate which will allow them to join other clubs and dive around the world.
