Whitworth swim school

Children of all abilities love the Whitworth Swim School! Suitable for primary-school aged children and above, we teach a natural and smooth swimming style, starting with simple skills that we build on in line with your child's physical ability and confidence. These are balanced with fun activities to develop skills including lifesaving, floating and surface-diving. Whether your child has participated in our baby and pre-school classes, or have only ever swam with the family, we’ll have a class that’s just right for them. Children are grouped by skill, not ages, in the following levels:

 

Beginners - develops water confidence and basic skills.
Intermediate - develops alignment, water skills and fundamentals of stroke technique.
Development - develops good stroke technique.
Advanced - develops stamina and graceful, efficient swimming.


 

1-2-1 Lessons

There are times when you feel your child needs just a bit of extra attention: they may be nervous about getting into the pool, require some additional teaching on a particular stroke or skill, or would like some advanced coaching. And then there are those children who just respond better to private teaching.
