One-to-one & One-to-two tuition:

  • Tailor made lessons to accommodate every individual standard and need. Please note that in our experience One-to-two tuition works better the closer the two children are in ability.

General class structure:

  • To maximise learning we aim to give individual tuition and feedback within the class environment. In our younger levels of class the teachers give the teaching points to the class as a whole, and then work with the children in 1's or 2's depending on the complexity of the skill they are working on. From experience this is the most effective way for children to learn to swim. Our upper levels again receive teaching points as a class, before practising the skill being taught in regular lane swimming formation.
