Why choose Swimfun North East?
Well, that is easy to answer! Unlike other swim schools, we are able to support you through your entire swimming journey so we provide classes for all ages and abilities, from birth, right through the 10 Swim England stages meaning you or your child will have the opportunity to be taught to competitive standard by the end of your time with us. We even provide tuition for mams and dads wanting to learn for the first time or to improve their technique. The expertise and vast experience of our team enable us to provide this comprehensive programme, with many of us having a background in competitive swimming which is beneficial when working with the more advanced swimmer.
All of our swimmers become part of our Swimfun family. We value the importance of being able to support them throughout their entire journey with the same swim teachers who will always ensure that our swimmers feel safe and confident.
We value the importance and benefits of swimming so much that our ethos is to be a truly inclusive swim school where we welcome families from all backgrounds and endeavour to meet all needs.
Value for Money
We don’t believe in charging astronomical fees to be able to learn this vital life skill so our monthly membership fee is only £32! Our flexible approach includes catch up lessons so if you are unable to attend your regular class one week you can double up the week after…we don’t believe in people losing their fees when you can easily join another class. The membership fee also includes certificates in line with the Swim England framework, which children receive at the end of each school term
High Quality Lessons
Consistency is important to us as it is crucial for swimming development. That is why you will have the same teachers each week. It is important for both children and adults to develop a trusting relationship and for our teachers to fully understand what support and expertise they need to share throughout your journey with us. Our small ratios of 1 teacher to a maximum of 6 swimmers enable teachers to be able to provide an individualised experience, whilst still having the fun of working in a group. All of our teachers follow the same schemes of work so if you do switch classes one week you will receive the same lesson content.
Since Swimfun North East was started in April 2017 by founder and director Michelle Harrison, we have worked with over 1400 families having fun whilst teaching safe water skills and efficient swimming techniques.
