About Us

KS swimschool was founded in 2014 with highly qualified teachers using the latest teaching and coaching techniques to help all pupils learn to swim quickly and safely. We regularly assess the children through the ASA learn to swim program and kelloggs distance badges. This contains 7 stages and once your child completes all 7 stages we can offer synchronised swimming as a club for them to continue keeping fit and having fun.

We have maximum class sizes of 8 with one teacher and one assistant. These small ratios give the children more individual attention to help them progress quicker and allow them to feel comfortable with the stability of the same friendly teacher each week.

Each teacher will stay with your child into their next class and complete an assessment badge with them to praise their hard work and improvements!

In our swimschool we aim for every child to complete an asa learn to swim badge or distance badge EVERY TERM! We thinks it's important to never hold the children back and progress them as quickly as they can!

KS Swim School is a swim school that not only teaches the life skill of swimming but inspires, and encourages children to become independent and competent swimmers, through a relaxing and supportive environment with friendly and cheerful teachers that love what they do.
