Children's Lessons

(4-13 years)

Our classes are a progressive swimming journey that run alongside the STA International Learn to Swim Programme. We work to ensure each class has a great group dynamic, and has children all of a similar age and ability, so they are getting the best they can from each lesson. We focus on each individual in a group with both feedback and encouragement, and do our best to ensure they are progressing and growing in confidence on their swimming journey. This includes being challenged as both an individual and as part of a team, whilst learning vital water safety and swimming skills, and continuing to build their love of the water!

Private Classes

We run private classes at our venues in specific time slots, and include private lessons in all our holiday intensive courses. 

Private lessons can be tailored specifically to improving a stroke, for working on breathing practices, and are especially good for building confidence for those who are more nervous - it is amazing to see the progress that can be achieved in a half hour lesson!


We welcome all children into our group lessons and we will discuss the class options and venues with you before booking on to ensure the learning environment will suit them best. Where needed, classes also have a teaching assistant to support. Our instructors have experience with those with ASD, ADHD and other learning needs, as well as working with those who have additional physical requirements.  We will do our best to find the best class to enable your child to achieve their goals, and to enjoy the water
