Surrey Swim School’s philosophy is that swimming can be learnt through structured, planned lessons with friendly, caring teachers. Swimming is a life-saving skill and can also be the beginning of many enjoyable water experiences such as scuba diving, wind surfing or water ski-ing. Our main goal is for swimmers to enjoy the water.
All teachers who work for Surrey Swim School are qualified with relevant rescue tests and DBS checks. They are enthusiastic about their teaching, well organised and very approachable. They offer structured, planned lessons in a friendly, caring environment. Each term all Surrey Swim School swimmers receive a Progress Report.
Surrey Swim School follows the Swim England National Plan for Teaching Swimming which assists our teachers to organise progressive lessons for the swimmers. It is a recognised teaching plan that is used throughout the country and is based on sound technical and educational principles.
Surrey Swim School’s teaching venues are Banstead Prep School, Banstead, The Priory, Dorking, St John’s School, Leatherhead and Royal Alexandra and Albert School, Gatton Park, Reigate.
Once babies have completed their course of immunisations they can join the Parent and Baby Class and enjoy becoming water friendly with others through games and songs feeling secure and safe with a parent/adult.
Small classes help the transition from being in the pool with an adult to being in the pool independently.
Classes are for 5 years onwards and have 10 different stages of achievement.
Classes for adults and any children who can swim and want to keep fit. Sessions can be 30 minutes or 1 hour where technique and stamina can be improved.
Individual instruction can be arranged for any of the above aims.
