Fab ! Very good lessons as in learning how to swim we’d definitely recommend


This is a great place for your kids to learn how to swim. It is spotlessly clean and secure. The greeting at reception is friendly and efficient. First and foremost though, the swimming instructors are first class. You can see the improvement in the children's ability week on week. The kids love it and can't wait to go back. Well done all involved.


Brilliant place to take your kids to learn how to swim. My son has special needs and they are brilliant with him


We love our lessons here! Amazing venue and the lessons are brilliant! Best place by far for swimming lessons

Amazing facility and teachers, have so much time for the children and really want to help them. Teacher has been amazing with my little girl and can’t thank her enough!


We have really enjoyed our time with Swim! so far, my son has really quickly developed his skills and looks forward to his lessons each week


10 without a doubt. Will was very unsure about moving into a new group but the staff did EVERYTHING they could to make him comfortable and he is now super happy coming to swimming again!


Excellent lessons. My little one has come on so much since taking swim lessons. Im really proud of her and the teachers are amazing.


Swim is an excellent facility! Always clean and well maintained. Staff are friendly and welcoming and there’s always someone around if you need anything. Every week the teacher gives her encouragement and the reassurance she needs to attempt new things. We are really pleased we signed up and are enjoying watching our daughter progress.


Love it! The teachers and staff are really friendly. They help you with any problem you may have and look for different ways to deal with the situation. They have amazing activities each week. My little boy love it!!
