Inclusive: We teach all ages and abilities from 3 years and above
Low Ratios: Only 6 children in each class
Teachers in the water: Especially with the non swimmers to provide support if needed
We teach the ASA / SASA Learn to Swim Framework: Swimmers will receive nationally recognisable qualifications and they will be taught the skills of swimming and not just distances. Our swimmers progression is monitored on a continual, week by week basis, with an individual written report from their instructor on week 11 of the course which is uploaded onto your online account!
No Waiting Lists: If the course is full then we will add an extra teacher or book more pool time as we understand if you are calling to book onto swimming lessons then you want to do that now – not in 6 months time!
Olympic Standard: Total Swimming is run by Olympic Medalist Steve Parry, who has designed the programme to give every person an opportunity to blossom and enjoy learning to swim.
