SAFETY is built into our programme and our facility
All STAFF are highly qualified and share a wealth of many years working as fully qualified ASA teachers and RLSS certified rescuers between us. All staff are DBS Checked (Formerly CRB) and members of the Institute of Swimming.
The VENUE for the lessons is a fantastic recently completed private pool which was custom designed for the teaching of swimming at all levels
Class Sizes are kept small enough to ensure personal attention, whilst still keeping prices reasonable and covering overheads... we do this because we love it and people have asked for it, not to make meeellions! We also have additional helpers to allow 1-2-1 focus for periods during lessons.
Courses run for 5-8 weeks and fall in line with Tyneside School term times
We cover the ASA National Learn to Swim Framework enhanced wth our own Innovative elements to guarantee Enjoyment and speedy Progress

It's impossible for us to be precise with an answer as this is one of the factors we adjust in response to swimmers' progress - generally swimmers in the earliest stages of learning to swim are in the smallest groups. We keep our class sizes small enough to ensure lots of opportunity for teacher attention. Additionally we employ additional teachers in the water to allow for even greater individual attention.
We have some classes that are virtually one-to-one ratios and others (only ever classes of high level swimmers) where there may be up to ten swimmers in a class.
Our "Tadpoles" Beginners classes have maximum 6 swimmers with 2 teachers (i.e. a 3-to-1 ratio)
