Our Swim School is run by locals for locals, with a wide range of Swimming Lessons and programmes as well as private lessons.

  • Our teachers are all highly qualified and experienced.
  • Our warm and private facilities are specific to teaching swimming.
  • Our teacher pupil ratios are the best in the region.
  • We operate two pools:
    • A 9 metre by 4 metre heated indoor pool
    • A 12 metre by 6 metre heated outdoor pool.

We run our lessons year round, and while we specialise in teaching children, we can cater for all ages and abilities, and encourage you to contact us to discuss your, or your child’s needs.

Unlike other swim schools, we keep our group sizes small, and specific to ability. While we take a proven, and structured approach to developing swimming skills, we do not work to a rigid “teaching by numbers” programme.

We pride ourselves in actively encouraging progression at the students individual pace.
