10 MAY 2021 - We currently have a backlog of enquiries for private lessons (any level) and beginner places If you have already contacted us, please be patient. We are trying to make space for a few new groups, and will be in touch as soon as we can. Unfortunately we cannot respond to new enquiries at the moment.
We do have a handful of spaces for intermediate & advanced students. They must be able to swim at least a width independently and consistently.
Private Swimming Lessons
Private swimming lessons are available for anyone who feels they need them. A few examples -
- Disabled people
- Very nervous beginners (adult or child)
- Anyone who wants a parent/carer/friend in the water with them for whatever reason
- If you want to learn something specific (eg Tumble Turns)
- Just prefer personal attention
We have exclusive use of the pool for all our classes. This means your private lesson will not be run alongside a noisy public swimming session. There will be a few other classes - either private or very small groups - but that's all. This is important for those who value their privacy.
Private lessons are available for children or adults. Most of our adult students come for an hour at a time, but some prefer just half an hour. For children we recommend only half an hour.
