We use carefully developed programmes in intimate class sizes that cater to all swimming abilities from ages 3 upwards, allowing your child to develop their skills with confidence, and for you to see their progress.


Low class sizes

Your child will never have to fight for attention – low class sizes make for an enhanced learning experience. We work to a close ratio of 1 teacher to a maximum of 6 children, except for the Advanced Classes which is 1 teacher with up to 8 children.

Our Programmes are developed by Olympic athletes

We're proud of that, but dont think that because of it your child is going to be pushed too hard ! We understand that fun and engaging lessons are at the heart of children's development, but at the same time we believe that if you are going to learn how to swim, you should be taught properly. That's what we do, and offer a high standard of teaching that can't be bettered. 

Progression monitoring

All progress is monitored on an ongoing basis by your child’s swim instructor. Reports are uploaded to your online account for you to check as soon as they are added.

Personalised tutoring

Children of a lower ability benefit from our instructors leaving the sidelines and getting into the water. Direct contact builds up trust and confidence, ensuring your child feels comfortable at all times.

Quality Venues

Our venues are carefully chosen and thoroughly checked to make sure your child is learning in an environment they enjoy and feel comfortable in. 

Fun lessons

We ensure that all of our lessons are fun for pupils; by making lessons enjoyable, we encourage children to learn, progress and get the most from their classes.

Nationally recognised awards

We work towards nationally recognised awards, with children in the UK following the Amateur Swimming Association (ASA) Learn to Swim framework. Children will recieve their highest achieved award free of charge each course.

Qualified, dedicated and passionate instructors

All of our instructors are DBS or PVG checked and ASA/STA qualified, working with the sole aim of helping your child to reach their full swimming potential.
