My daughter has been to two lessons so far and I can already see a huge improvement in her swimming ability. Her confidence has increased 100%. All the members of staff as so welcoming, friendly and informative. The Teachers are awesome, so engaging, encouraging and positive. My daughter loves the class as do I.


Was here this morning for the first time with my 3 year old. What a place. A proper swimming lesson. Not your council run 20 kids to a class. There is a maximum of six kids per class which means my sons actually getting proper teaching. Staff and facilities are great. The viewing area is behind big glass windows which is nice and cool so no sitting poolside and roasting. Coffee machine does a decent coffee too. Got my son signed up for classes weekly now. Well done guys keep up the great work


My little boy started his lessons this week place is spotless staff are amazing friendly and so welcoming such a big difference from our last lessons we went to!! Brillant seating area looking on the pool and staff actually go into pool with the kids which is so much better as they get the proper training 😁 times are also great!! Glad I made the choice to move him here!! Keep up the good work guys


Great place for the kids to get proper lessons to learn how to swim. Class sizes kept to a small amount so that kids can get proper one to one lessons. Place is immaculate inside and nice viewing area to relax with a coffee and watch the lessons.


Whole place is immaculate, staff are welcoming and friendly. They've been so helpful and understanding setting up our lessons and getting started. My son really enjoys them.


Both my kids attend here, the facilities are excellent and the way the lessons are run are fantastic. I would definitely recommend, it is worth the higher price.


fantastic staff and excellent set up in just two lessons my son's came on leaps and bounds. He is full of smiles and more confidence after each lesson can't wait to see his progress over the coming weeks.


My daughter had her intro lesson here today and it was absolutely brilliant for a short half hour session and she was jumping into the pool sticking her face in the water and had an absolute amazing time she cant wait till her next lesson staff and facilities are top notch would definitely recommend


Amazing Welcome from the staff! Place is immaculate and purpose built. Lots of Staff and All from Helpful. Fun Warm up before lessons begin. Comfortable place for adults too watch the lessons. All signed up for lessons and daughter can't wait to be back.
