Brought to you by the experts at Puddle Ducks West Berkshire.

Taught by Senior Teacher Lauren for the very first time we will be extending our Baby & Preschool expertise into Primary school aged classes.

Swimming is a journey, not a destination and here at Swim Academy, we learn and have fun all the way! We'll take your little one from 'happy getting their faces wet' to 'swimming up to 100m using 3 different strokes'!

Technically, we focus on beautiful swimming and the right technique. Our programme deconstructs each stroke in a unique way.

Suitable for primary-school aged children aged 4 to 10 years old, we teach a natural and smooth swimming style, starting with simple skills that we build on in line with your child's physical ability and confidence. These are balanced with fun activities to develop skills including life-saving, floating and surface-diving.

Whether your child has swum in our Baby and Pre-School classes, or has only ever dabbled with the family, we'll have a class that's just right for them.

Our Swim Academy classes are currently running at the following pools:

  • RAF Odiham on Sundays at 3:30pm & 5pm
  • The Avenue Hydro Pool on Fridays at 5pm & 5:30pm 

Children are grouped by skill, not ages. If you are unsure which level would be most suitable for your child, or you would like further information on our Swim Academy classes, please complete the form below and we will be in touch shortly. Alternatively, email us on or call us on 01252 418250, we will always be happy to help.
