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. Typically with 5 or fewer 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, Pipers Corner School in High Wycombe, Danesfield Manor School in Walton-on-Thames and Reddam House School in Wokingham. Each of our venues, situated in the beautiful surrounds of Berks, Bucks and Surrey, have lovely warm pools, with lots of free parking and easily accessible via public transport.


In 2022 we are holding our crash courses during the February Half-Term, Easter holidays, Summer holidays and the October Half-Term!
