Each child is different so its important for them to be in a class that caters to their needs.

Stage 1

A beginner class for children with little or no previous experience in the water or class setting. Generally suitable for 4 to 6 year olds.

Stage 2

A class for the child that has had previous experience in a class setting, is confident in the water and can swim unaided for 2 meters. Would require a float to swim 10 metres safely. Suitable for 5 and up.

Stage 3

A class for the child that is confident swimming above or below the surface unaided for 10 meters but lacks the core skills to get around the pool efficiently & effectively. Generally suitable for 6 up.

Stage 4

Classes for the child that is comfortable stroke swimming over 15 metres and is looking for some added structure and technique to their swimming. Generally suitable for 7 and up. 


We teach your child to swim independently, beautifully and confidently, and to love and respect the water.

Mat provides such a brilliant environment for young swimmers, he is kind, patient and fun! My child has only recently returned to lessons, as whilst he is confident in water, he needed to add proper strokes! Mat has been brilliant with this 🤩

Fantastic group, due to the smaller group size Matt has more time to give to each child. So happy with my child's progress even after a couple of weeks. Extremely pleased

Mat has been teaching my daughter for the last six weeks now and she has come on in leaps and bounds. She really looks forward to her swimming lessons each week. It’s also lovely for me to see her enjoy it so much.

Mat is teaching my 2 and 4 year old to swim and they love both the swimming and Mat. The 4 year old is nervous having missed out on early years swimming due to the pandemic and Mat is boosting his confidence and making it fun to learn. A brilliant teacher and all round nice guy. Couldn’t recommend him more highly.

Great teacher. Mat has really helped our child gain confidence swimming.

Matt is a brilliant energetic and enthusiastic teacher, He inspired our little ones confidence in the water and showed them new techniques to make learning to swim easier. We could not believe the change in just a few lessons. After many other lessons with coaches elsewhere Matt and colleagues really made noticeable changes and improvements to our little ones confidence and ability in the water in a very short period of time. I would never go anywhere else now and definitely recommend Matt every time!!

My two children, aged 6 & 4, love their lessons with Mat. They have made amazing progress and both can now swim unaided. Thank you Mat!

I’ve wanted to learn to swim for a long time but was always too nervous and avoided it. I finally booked in with Matt as an adult learner and really glad I did. I’ve made a lot of progress in just a few weeks. Thanks to Matt and his friendly, (very 😅) patient approach I look forward to sessions and feel so much more comfortable in the water, thanks Matt! 👌🏻

Mat is an excellent teacher, my son has gained lots of confidence since starting at Mat's swim school. Mat's friendly, fun approach motivates the kids and teaches them without them even realising. My son loves this swim class and looks forward to it weekly. Highly recommend this swim school.

Location

Leigh-on-sea – Situated a stones throw from Leigh Broadway our Pool in Station Road is the ideal location for your child to thrive.

We follow the Swim England Learn to Swim Awards which are about developing confident and competent swimmers through fun and enjoyment.

This Framework builds the skills and motivation needed to develop a lifelong love of water and maintain an active and healthy lifestyle through swimming.

Swim England

The Awards are divided into progressive stages & make up the core national syllabus and the backbone of swimming lessons for primary school aged children.

The Awards are designed to reward your child for their development of the essential aquatic skills they need to be confident, competent and safe in the water.

Each of the Learn to Swim Stage Awards has a list of clear outcomes that need to be completed in order to gain each Award.

We teach children to be safe in and around the water, this includes knowing what to do should they fall into open water such as a lake or a river. Learning to swim is primarily a lifesaving/safety skill, so they will master water safety and swimming skills.

The Team

Mat – Level 2 Open Water Swimming Coach & Swim England Instructor

Shelley – Level 2 Swim England Instructor & SEND Teacher

FAQs

What Stage should my child start in?

Swim Lessons: When to Start & what you Should Know

Learning to swim is an important life skill that can play a key role in helping to prevent drowning―a top cause of death among children. Children, and their parents, need to learn how to swim to help keep time in the water safe and fun!

When should my child learn to swim?

Children develop at different rates, and not all are ready to begin swim lessons at exactly the same age.  When making your decision, keep your child’s emotional maturity, physical and developmental abilities and limitations, and comfort level in the water in mind. Maybe group classes might not work so have you considered 1-2-1 tuition. Learn more…

Swim lessons for children ages 4 and up

By their 4th birthday, most children are ready for swim lessons. At this age, they usually can learn basic water survival skills such as floating, treading water and getting to an exit point. By age 5 or 6, most children in swim lessons can master the front crawl. If your child hasn’t already started in a learn-to-swim program, now is the time!
