Our Pools & Classes
We swim at lots of beautiful hand-picked pools around Brighton, Crowborough, East Grinstead, Goudhurst, Hailsham, Hassocks, Maidstone, Sevenoaks, Shoreham-by-Sea, Tonbridge and Tunbridge Wells.Our Pools & Classes
Baby & Pre-school Swimming Lessons
Our Baby & Pre-school programme is a wonderful bonding experience. Progressive lesson plans instil water-confidence and a love of swimming whilst our expert teachers tailor activities to your child’s abilities and needs. Taught in lovely, warm pools with a maximum of ten children, our classes incorporate rhyme, music and movement based on extensive child development research; we are the only national baby swim school that is 100% child-led. Our lessons are so well-received that the children we teach can often swim over 10m before they start school.
Swim Academy - aged 4-10 years
Swim Academy teaches primary-school children up to the age of 10 to swim beautifully and efficiently, as well developing essential water safety and lifesaving skills. Our close-knit class sizes mean all children get the right level of support to suit their age. Small enough to nurture; large enough to let go. Children learn through experience, fun and some repetition. Practice makes perfect. We keep our classes fun, lively, varied and exciting to help your child stay engaged and challenged in the water.
