Our Classes

Join a Class Today!


The Swim England Learn to Swim Programme is the leading national teaching syllabus for delivering safe, inclusive and effective swimming lessons for all ages.

Developed by swimming experts, the programme engages and motivates learners of every age and ability with a comprehensive range of awards.


This part of the Programme teaches a child to swim using all four strokes.

Each stage within the Swim England Learn to Swim Framework has a clear set of targets for the pupil to meet to then move on to the next stage.


Swim England Swimming Challenge Awards include Bronze, Silver and Gold Awards.

Swimmers will be challenged to develop a wide range of skills and stamina to achieve the awards, with a focus on good stroke style.


Water People Saying

I cannot praise Splash Swim School highly enough. Having initially begun lessons with another club I found my children hating swimming and continually moaning about going. Moving them to Splash Swim School was the best thing I could have done as I suddenly found them actually enjoying their lessons and looking forward to them.

All 3 of my children have been taught by Splash and all have achieved their Gold Level Certificates. Two of my children chose to continue to the Rookie Lifeguarding course and my son, having recently completed this too, is now about to embark on the Level 1 Swim Teacher Assistant course. I could not be more thrilled!

Val, Jackie and their team have been amazing, offering care and support throughout and taking their time to really get to know their pupils! Lessons are fun and groups are small. I asked my children to give me some words to describe their experience of Splash, here’s what they said: Fun, Friendly, Exciting, Motivating, Loving & Kind!

I would highly recommend Splash Swim School to anyone who wants their child to become a strong confident swimmer and to enjoy their time learning. It’s a very special Swim School!"

I would recommend SPLASH! to anyone. From day one our daughter loved attending her swimming classes which were small and therefore more focused on her as an individual. Plus, her class was based at Manor of Groves where the pool is one depth and warm which is great for younger children.

Our daughter has recently passed her gold award and with the help of SPLASH! has become an excellent and extremely strong swimmer.

Swimming is a 'must' skill to have in life so thanks SPLASH! for all your help."

I have been with Splash! since 2011 following a recommendation and I have nothing but praise for Val, Jackie & their team. I currently have 3 children learning to swim with Splash! and my oldest child has completed her lessons with them.

They are patient, friendly, calming and encouraging with both the children and parents, giving regular feedback on progress. When my second child started lessons he would not get into the pool but Amy, his instructor, was incredibly encouraging with him and grew his confidence in 1:1s before moving him into group lessons. He now eagerly looks forward to his lessons each week and has recently joined a swimming club which he loves. His enthuasiasm and ability is a testament to Splash!

Splash! don't just teach the children to swim up and down a pool, they ensure each child knows how to swim correctly with great technique and how to be safe in the water. The classes are small which enables each child to get the full benefit of what they are being taught. 

I highly recommend Splash! to anyone who is looking to start their children in swimming lessons. In my opinion you will not find a better swim school."
