Who we are, what we do
PoolSchools was founded in 2007 by Ian Humble and to date we have enjoyed teaching thousands of children and adults to swim.
Our mission has always been to offer fun, positive swimming lessons to build confidence, develop strong swimmers and encourage a healthy lifestyle.
We are passionate about ensuring that everyone has an opportunity to learn to swim in a fun and safe environment.
We offer the following classes:
- Parent and child classes (2-3 years or 3-4 years – venue specific)
- Children’s group lessons (4 years and above)
- Adult lessons (non-swimmers to advanced)
- Lessons for children with special needs
- Private lessons (depending on availability)
- Holiday crash courses
- ASA / Swim England Courses (Teacher training courses)
We believe that a good environment and an enjoyable swimming experience is key to learning. We limit the numbers in each lesson. All our swimming teachers are ASA level 2 qualified.
“My daughter’s confidence has grown so much since joining PoolSchools. Having the teachers and assistants in the water really helps.”
“My daughter started with PoolSchools last term, we went on holiday over Christmas and I was so pleased to see how well she has progressed. She is always so excited to go swimming each week and can’t wait to get started back this January. A big thank you to the team!”
“James has been swimming with PoolSchools since parent and child. He has now moved up to P6 and he has such a lovely smooth stroke. Well worth all the time I have sat on poolside and watched over the years.”
“Thank you for your hard work with the girls this term, their technique has really improved and we are looking forward to practising on our Summer holiday this year. Have a lovely Summer break and we shall be looking forward to returning in September!”
“My wife recently bought me a term of swimming lessons. I was hoping to improve my confidence and technique and I am so pleased. I feel really at ease in the pool now and have actually attempted to master a new stroke! Thanks PoolSchools!!”
