With over 25 years of experience as professional swimming teachers, the Swim People have developed a unique, tried and tested method for teaching adults how to swim.

We have fantastic success rates and guarantee that, after an intensive swimming 'crash course' or a set of weekly lessons with us, you will not only feel far more comfortable in the water, you will also be much more confident in your abilities as a swimmer.

Residential Swimming Courses

Our residential and intensive swimming courses are extremely popular. If you need accommodation, we can book you a stay at a local hotel, leaving you to relax and enjoy the beautiful South Coast and learn to swim while you are here!

With over a third of adults in Britain being non swimmers, our quick and easy residential and intensive swim courses are very much in demand. So, whether you are terrified of water or just need to brush up on your technique, we are here to help you.

Weekly Private Swimming Lessons

For those lucky enough to live on the beautiful South Coast, we are able to provide 60 or 90 minute lessons. This can be on a weekly, fortnightly or ad hoc basis, depending on your diary and budget. We provide tuition for the water phobic and beginners starting their swimming journey through to people needing to work on specific areas of their stroke and triathletes. Whatever your level we have a lesson to suit your needs. As all our lessons are 1:1 we very much tailor your session to your exact requirements.


These hour long sessions are specifically designed for athletes, triathletes and the serious fitness swimmer.

Two-day Course

If you can swim but want to get stronger and more efficient at it, the 2 day course is the one you need.

Three-day Course

If you can move through the water but without style or grace and you want to improve your swimming, this is the course for you.

Four-day Course

If you can't swim but are not scared of the water, this 4 day course will give you lots of time to get the hang of the whole process.

Five-day Course

The 5 day course will give us plenty of time to crack the science of swimming and to build your confidence in the water.

“Amazing!!!! I had never swam prior to doing the 5 day intense course, and really wanted to give it a go. I wasn't sure if the 5 days would be sufficient but I can now swim, and have a lot more confidence in the water. ”
