I brought my son for his first swim before he started his lessons with school. I was very impressed with how organised and clean everything was and the lifeguard took the time to speak to my son about what to expect when he came with school and it was a pleasant experience for him. He’s been since with school and thoroughly enjoyed it. Thank you!


I just wanted to comment on the swimming lessons our Year 5 and Year 6 pupils have recently undertaken. The quality of the teaching has been impressive with an emphasis on gaining water confidence through enjoyment and fun. As a result, so many have improved immensely.
