Crash Courses

Looking for something worthwhile to occupy the kids during the holidays? Why not transform your child’s swimming in one intensive week of swimming lessons. Our lessons are for children between the ages of 3 and 12 years old, from complete beginners to more accomplished swimmers looking to improve technique. With a maximum of 5 swimmers per teacher we really focus on results during this week.


Our crash courses are held at Reading Blue Coat School in Sonning, Mary Hare School in Newbury, St John’s Beaumont School in Old Windsor and Pipers Corner School in High Wycombe. Each of our venues, situated in the beautiful surrounds of Berks and Bucks, have lovely warm pools, with lots of free parking and easily accessible via public transport.


PLEASE NOTE THAT DUE TO CORONAVIRUS THE FOLLOWING COURSES MAY NOT RUN SO WE ARE NOT TAKING ANY NEW BOOKINGS.  If you have already booked we will confirm with you by the end of July which courses may be able to go ahead.
