Your local Swim School

At Turtle Swim School, children are taught to swim in a positive and friendly environment, using a range of songs, games and toys. Children are encouraged and rewarded to ensure they grow their confidence in and around water.
Lessons range from baby swimming classes, up to school age children who are competent swimmers and need help with their technique in our squad classes.
