Our learn to swim programme, written by industry leading professionals, is specifically designed for children ages 3-11. All classes have a maximum of 6 swimmers so we can cater to your child, letting them develop their skills and gain confidence in a way that suits them. We also understand that as a parent, it's important for you to see your child's progress so we make sure we update your online account at least once every 4 weeks. 

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 don’t 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, by offering 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.

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.

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 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 Swim England Learn to Swim framework. Children will receive their highest achieved award free of charge each term.
