About Our Lessons

We offer weekly 30-minute small group lessons for children of all ability levels, from 3 years upwards.

Our high-quality lessons run out of modern and clean venues. Find us at:

  • Reading Blue Coat School in Reading
  • Mary Hare School in Newbury
  • St John’s Beaumont School in Old Windsor
  • Pipers Corner School in High Wycombe
  • Danesfield Manor School in Walton-on-Thames

With class sizes limited to five in lower ability levels, our aim is to progress your child’s abilities and enjoyment of swimming from day one.

Covid-19 Update

How we conducted our lessons during 2020

During 2020 we worked hard with our venues to look at how we could operate our lessons as safely as possible. For the safety of everyone we decided we would run our lessons with even smaller class sizes than usual. As such, we conducted both one-to-one weekly lessons and classes for up to three children; provided the extra children were siblings (or all belong to the same social ‘bubble’).

Our instructors adapted their games and sessions in light of Covid-19, still bringing the excitement and fun to the lessons our little HydroKidz are accustomed to.

Usual group lessons have now resumed

We safely resumed our usual HydroKidz weekly small group lessons across all our pools from September 2021.

How we teach?

We’re a SwimEngland (formally known as ASA) accredited Swim School and follow the SwimEngland National Learn to Swim Pathway. Your child will progress through the different levels and be assessed after each lesson, as they progress your child will be awarded with certificates on poolside.

Our Instructors

HydroKidz is run by SwimExpert who have taught thousands of people to swim for over a decade. Our hand-picked instructors, many of whom have been with us for years, are committed to delivering high quality teaching. We naturally like to tailor our teaching to individuals; even in a group setting!
