Summer Intensive starts the summer off to a great start…..

The summer Intensive was another successful week. We love these weeks as the progress made is huge because of the intensity of a lesson every day of the week. Monday being the first day is always very busy settling swimmers but they are all assessed within the first 10 minutes so right from the word go the swimmers start to learn and develop skills and strokes. I received lots of wonderful emails…


The term has whizzed by and swimmers have enjoyed the last day of term with final assessments, fun and games in the pool.

So thanks team for all your enthusiasm and professionalism to make Aquakids so successful.
We say goodbye and good luck to Phoebe, Sophie, Nancy and Joe but welcom…

Enjoy the May half…

Spring has Sprung!

Another term has swum passed so quickly – or is that a sign of getting old? An exciting term with tears on poolside for those watching their swimmers swim for the first time and wonderful tweets from pleased parents – thank you for such positive feedback.
I am often approached by parents concerned about what they see as their swimmers lack of progress. Believe me when I say every swimmer,…

Wet and Windy Half term!

What a half term….well done for everyone braving the elements to come swimming.
I love chatting to swimmers when they come onto poolside and this social interaction is an
