TO BE ARRANGED
Our Swim School provides lessons for pre-school children through to and including adult learners with exclusive use of a private pool in Dunswell for our younger swimmers and at the Mercure Hotel for our more advanced swimmers.
Our lead teachers are qualified Amateur Swimming Association and/or Swimming Teacher Association qualified with First Aid and Lifesaving qualification. All team members are cleared by the Criminal Records Bureau with an Enhanced Disclosure together with certification in Safeguarding Children and Vulnerable Adults.
We provide a unique and professional learning environment for our preschoolers and young swimmers.
The fantastic pool facilities allow us to work with small groups of no more than six in the pool with two swimming instructors. This means they get really good quality teaching and more time for swimming. We are Covid 19 fully complient following Government Guidance, Swim England and pleaseSTA Regulations
Our area of specialism lies in swimming lessons for SEND children and adults. Mainstream swimming lessons can be quite challenging but again we can offer private, one-to-one teaching or small groups with the ability for parents and carers to support in the water if desirable. Our ethos is to treat everyone as an individual, assessing their needs to provide a bespoke teaching plan. Our teachers are all highly experienced and qualified and are simply passionate about teaching this life skill.
We also teach adults who are either learning to swim or want to be more confident in the water. Public pools can feel intimidating and we have found that adults enjoy the privacy of the pool and improve much quicker with the one-to-one learning and support and non-intimidating environment.
The most important thing for all of our coaches is to develop strong relationships with our clients. Our approach is always person-centered with tailored lessons to suit their confidence and ability, there is no one-size-fits-all.
