About The Swim People
We are 'The Swim People' and we teach people from all over the UK to swim with the best quality swimming lessons. Whether you need an intensive course, weekly lessons or even just a one of training session, we have a swim teaching recipe that will do the trick and leave you feeling much better in the water.
Teaching people to swim is all we do, that's all we have ever done and that's what we enjoy the most in life! Gemma started teaching people to swim 25 years ago and soon decided to set up a swim school based on what she believed a swim school should be:
- Good quality swimming lessons with a difference, the difference being a handful of things that make our swimming lessons work.
- Beautiful pools that are clean, quiet and very warm where the teacher is always in the pool with you, not standing on the side barking instructions!
- The best teachers - our teachers are all qualified to the highest standard and then trained in house to keep everyone working to The Swim People's very high standards.
We are proud to have some of the best teachers in the country, who are hugely passionate about what they do, very caring and have a skill set that most teachers can only dream of. Teaching is their vocation and combined with The Swim Peoples way of teaching we get fantastic results every time.
Finally the last thing that makes the difference is ... privacy ... privacy to learn, to make mistakes, to ask questions, to get in your swim suits, to practice, to be nervous, to jump for joy when you achieve what you thought you never would!
When you book a Swim People course or lesson, we take your course as seriously as you. We keep the whole facility, including the shower room, the changing room, the pool and poolside private, just for your course. The only person you might see other than your teacher is the next pupil arriving or another swim people teacher in for training. Trust us, it makes the difference.
Everybody that has booked a lesson or a 'learn to swim course' with us, has exceeded their expectations, (and trust us, some people have very high expectations!)
