Are you open?
Yes! We are currently teaching at One Aldwych Hotel in Covent Garden. Our other locations will re-open mid-summer.
Do you work with adults only?
Yes. We work exclusively with adults.
Are all the lessons 1:1?
Yes. Most of our work is private individual swimming lessons. However, we occasionally offer 2:1 lessons at our City pool. We do not offer group-classes.
How long are the lessons?
Each lesson is 45mins.
Can you help me?
Yes! We teach all strokes and skills at all levels. So whether you are starting out or a seasoned swimmer we can help.
The only skill we don’t teach is diving. Public pools that meet FINA standards regarding vertical depth, forward clearance and freeboard are safest for this.
How do I book my first package?
Just email us at [email protected] and we will call you back.
May I manage my lessons online after I have booked?
Absolutely! We have specialist booking software and a mobile app so you may manage your lessons online 24/7. When you purchase your first package we will get you all set up with the online software.
When can I start?
You can start whenever you like (subject to availability).
As we don’t teach kids you are not tied to school terms. And as we don’t teach groups you don’t have to wait for a course start date. We teach every week of the year except Christmas week.
I’d like to start in a few weeks should I book now?
If you need a peak time we’d suggest booking now. If you wait until you are ready to swim there may be a delay before you can start as peak times often book out weeks (sometimes months) ahead.
If you need an off-peak time you can leave it to nearer the time.
Peak times are typically early mornings and evenings.
May I have a male/female instructor?
Absolutely! Just let us know and we can make sure you have an instructor you feel comfortable with.
What will the instructor be like?
We select calm, patient instructors with a gentle approach who are right there for you.
Will I have the same instructor each time?
Our lessons are designed so that you keep the same instructor throughout. However, in these current times it’s possible that we may have to switch your instructor should they become unwell or we need to re-deploy them to another pool. Rest assured all our instructors are lovely and your new instructor will know exactly where you are up to so any transition will be seamless.
Do I need to be a member?
No. Membership is not required and no guest pass fees are payable.
May I use the pool/sauna/steam before or after my lessons?
Unfortunately, no. At the current time access is for the lesson only.
How can I prepare for lessons?
No preparation or practice required! Come as you are and we will take care of you.
