    "Pete has an outstanding approach with all the kids, they clearly enjoy their lessons. We can see the progress throughout the lessons. My husband and I are both secondary school teachers, and are really happy with his teaching techniques and consistency. We love that he has his lesson plan on the side. We also love that he sticks to the rules and cares about health and safety."

    "Andy's class is the one John is always most excited about. He engages so well with each child and parent and creates an atmosphere that is light hearted fun and educational. John's confidence and respect for the water has grown significantly since starting Andy's classes a few months ago and it's the only class that John (2 yrs) actually focuses on and listens. Thanks for being our favourite teacher Andy!"

    "Maggie has been a wonderful teacher for my daughter Freya over the last few months. Maggie has great energy, is really good company and has a real knack of bringing out the best in Freya - whether that's as part of a class full of other children or on the rare occasions when it's just been Freya in the pool.  She has an encyclopaedic knowledge of difference swimming exercises and builds great rapport with all the children in the pool so far as I can see. Overall I think that she does a great job."

  • Monique

    Swim Academy classes-

    Saturday Aspire Centre

    "When my son started Swim Academy, he could swim but wouldn't put his face in the water or jump in. His confidence soared, he achieved his 10m award and mastered many swimming techniques! I would highly recommend these classes to any parents wanting their child to learn in a fun but structured environment which engages children from the second they get in the water until the second they get out!"

    Louise Buck, Drew's Mummy

  • Becky


    "Ever since Becky started teaching my 7.5 month son, Finnegan, I’ve seen his sheer delight at being in the water at each lesson. It’s been wonderful to see him grow more confident in the water and splash about with excitement each time. Becky is patient and encouraging to both mum and baby."
