The Swim Specialist has a reputation for being the most exciting and innovative swimming lesson provider. We specialise in catering for all abilities from the age of 0.4 months through to adults by delivering  our unique lesson plans that includes themes, games, and age appropriate challenges that follow the Swim England Learn to Swim Pathway Stages.

Learn to Swim

Unlike other swim schools we tailor our swimming lessons to meet every child's individual needs. We deliver our original games, themes, and challenges weekly to ensure that the swimmers have fun, stay safe, whilst maintaining focus throughout the lessons. We encourage time on task to ensure no child is left waiting on the side or in the water.

Teaching Swimming

Innovative Teaching

Our innovative teaching methods combined with leading technology cater for water confidence through to stroke development. Our sessions are planned, monitored, and evaluated using handheld digital devices.

You will get exclusive online access to view your progress at the end of each lesson.

Swimming Awards

My son loves his lessons - Highly recommend

My son was terrified of water before he started with Nathaniel and his team, now he is already at stage 3 and just achieved his 10m distance badge! My son loves his lessons and always looks forward to the new games each week. I am so proud of him. Massive thank you to Nathaniel and your team! Highly recommend.
