My Grandsons have their swimming lessons here, they love coming, all the teachers have a great relationship with the kids & actually teach them to swim, progress is logged on a tablet, then the kids move up a group as required. Last night was particularly quiet so very small groups, 4 in 1 group then just 1 in another. I'd definitely recommend swimming lessons here


Great place to swim, My little one loves it. The instructors are really friendly and my child has progressed loads since starting. Could not recommend it enough


First time with my daughter (she's been coming for a couple of months now). Excellent facilities, very clean, the whole space is for little ones only. The swim teacher is lovely and our daughter loves every session!


My son absolutely loves it, the skills he has learnt is fantastic and its great the teachers get in the pool and demonstrate to them. The staff are very friendly.


Nice staff the attention is the best in all Oldham, very good place, the pool was immaculate, the teacher is the best with kids, I really recommend this place for kids


I think everything about swim is just fabulous. I would prefer more feedback for how she is doing which understandably has been hard because of covid. Fab teachers and fab lessons. This is the third company I have Booked for lessons for my daughter and the only one who has been able to settle her and get her actually swimming. I would thousand percent recommend swim to other families


I love the way the Swim! team use play to get my little ones swimming. I love to swim but lessons were boring when I was a child compared to this! All of the team are friendly and approachable as well as being highly competent. It's a joy to bring my babies to Swim! and it's great to see the improvement in my little girl's swimming.


Swim has been amazing for my child. He wasn’t confident at all when he first went and now he is loving every second. Staff are lovely and love that they are in the pool with their classes. So happy I decided to join him up.


Absolutely would recommend and have done previously. My nephew is at swim too! Always welcoming and encouraging. Excellent communication too especially if there is any changes to me be made, which is great to know first hand it helps transition from myself to child going into pool much easier.


Highly recommend Swim! Clean, safe environment. Swim teachers are very professional, so focused on the Childrens learning, pushing them to improve skills each week.


We are really happy both with the class and the premises. The staff is also very polite and helpful whenever we need something.
