Abigail Parkin

Operational Director/Instructor/STA Tutor

I began teaching back in 2006 after an ex olympic swimmer, the manager of the swim scheme I was lifeguarding for suggested I try teaching, and I haven't looked back! Learning a new skill, at any age, can come with challenges and development highs and lows, and I find supporting all our swimmers to reach their goals and find a love of the water and being water safe truly fulfilling. 

I hold the Level 1 and 2 Swim England (Previously ASA) teaching qualifications along with the STA Baby and PreSchool Teaching Award and STA Level 3 Baby and PreSchool Diploma. I am an STA Baby and PreSchool Aquatic Tutor and an NPLQ lifeguard trainer assessor, along with holding a Pool Plant 3 Operator.

Agata Bury

Administrator and Instructor 

I have been working in various Customer Service roles for the past thirteen years. I started in retail and then moved onto office work mostly for a local authority. My first role for Oxford Swimming Academy was as a pool supervisor at Headington Pool. After the pandemic and maternity leave, I came back as part time Office Administrator. I now also hold the STA Baby and Preschool Teaching Award and STA level 2 Award and Certificate in Teaching Swimming and am really enjoying beginning to teach and develop in this role too!
