Sport Education Swim School is firstly very much family orientated and child centred - not a production line of swimming lessons which you may come across elsewhere. We are an Approved Amateur Swimming Association Swim School and a Member of the Institute of Swimming.The Swim School operates at various centres across the region. These centres cater for all abilities and ages from baby's to grandad's! We have a wide ranges of pools to suit your individual needs varying in depth and size. Our swim school class sizes are limited to five children or adults and are quite often smaller. We are happy to arrange  private 1 to 1 lessons too if you feel it is the best way to develop your swimming.It is a pleasure at Sport Education Ltd to help develop and coach swimmers with disabilities such as Cerebal Palsy, autisim, visual,and limb impairment. We are now producing  swimmers that have entered successfully into the swimming club enviroment and are competing well in the Arena leagues and Gloucester blocks etc. These swimmers still like to come back for 1v1's,  to work on individual technique that perhaps may not be possible in the club training due to numbers etc.  Please do not be afraid to call, as we say we cater for all!!
