"With a heavy heart we have now finished lessons with Sandra as my son has started swimming at school. Sandra was recommended to me, and I in turn heartily recommend her swim school. My son came on in leaps and bounds with lessons from Steve and Richard - always super attention, fun, and classes kept small and personal. Thank-you to you all for helping my son get over his nerves and turning him into a boy who loves swimming. "

"Thank you for the last 14 years !! You have patiently taught all four of our children to swim.(the last two slightly challenging!) swimming is such an important lesson in life that stays with them for life, the badges and certificates you awarded them were always a great confidence boost. you run an excellent swim school thanks :)"
