Great lessons! The pool is the same depth throughout so ideal for kids lessons. The teaching method is great too; my 4 year old goes in the pool independently with armbands on and a noodle. Maximum of 6 in a class. She has been far more confident with swim! than she ever was with a previous place where the parents went in the pool but there were no swim aids. The previous place also had an obsession with dunking the children underwater, whereas swim! encourage kids to put their faces in the water, as a long term preparation for underwater swimming. Just pleased to see my daughter enjoying swimming, rather than the previous place where it felt like a punishment at times.


I joined swim! when my little boy was only 4 months as we were keen for him to be confident in the water. We love the place from the changing rooms to the actual lessons. The instructors are all so lovely and confident in what they do. My little boy is now 10 months absolutely loves the sessions and super confident in the water even if he does spend the time just splashing me


I would recommend swim! Batley to anyone who wants to take their child to learn how to swim, the best decision I made was the bring my little boy here. All staff are very friendly and very welcoming :


We have been coming to this swimming place since it opened and it’s very impressive. My son really enjoys it and having never had lessons before we can see he is making progress. Thank you to all the wonderful staff (you really are great, all of you)


Absolutely amazing swimming lessons. Our son is autistic and has learning difficulties but they are all so brilliant and patient with him. The facility itself is new, and has amble changing rooms as well as a car park. I would 100% recommend them to anyone looking to start to swim or continue on their swimming journey.


My girls go here for lessons and love it. All the staff are so friendly and welcoming and I love that it's tailored just for kids. Plus the online tracker is great to see their progress. Plus as I work different shifts, it's great having different times to choose from after the initial assessment.


Amazing experience for your little ones to learn to swim. The instructors are so welcoming, patient and kind.


The staff are so helpful and friendly, the building is clean and full of facilities that other swim centres don't have. The online system for students is also amazing!


My son had his taster session this afternoon, and the teachers were amazing with him! he got a bit upset at one point and he can be hard to calm down, but the teacher managed to calm him pretty much instantly, my son came away from the lesson absolutely suited with himself and can't wait to come again


We had a taster session this afternoon and I was really impressed with the whole place! Clean, warm changing rooms with lockers. The toilets and shower area was clean too. A lovely seating area for parents to watch their children swimming and the pool was clean, tidy and warm. The staff were really helpful and brilliant with my son who was quite nervous. We have now booked lessons and I am looking forward to watching my son become more confident and learning to swim.


I’ve had children at other swim schools and this is by far the best I’ve experienced. The teachers have so much patience and make the sessions fun, the facilities are immaculate. I can’t believe the difference in the teaching styles from other places we have been to. I would recommend to everyone


I already have recommended it to everyone I think would be interested. The attention to detail and quality of the facilities is brilliant. My son is excited to go each week.


So happy my child is now at swim!. Love that the facility is just for children, lovely venue and well thought out. The lessons look fun and engaging, my eldest has attended and watched her younger sister and said when she learnt to swim it was nothing like the fun at swim!
