Swim Academy 1:1 classes

at The Hilton Bradley Stoke

 

We offer independent children’s swimming classes for four to ten-year-olds. Swim technique to children and beginner adult classes and 1:1’s and 2:1’s . Our lessons are in small groups and more personable than some large swim classes which means you and your child can get the most from our teacher. Whether your child is a complete beginner and looking to learn to swim or they may be struggling to progress in their current lessons Aquatic Harmony offers swimming classes for all abilities. Or if you are looking to learn to swim we can offer 1:1 and 2:1 classes.
Our teachers are very experienced and have taught hundreds of children to swim. We follow the STA (Swim Teachers Association) swim programme which blends water safety and water confidence whilst correcting swim stroke techniques and stamina. Every child is different and children learn in different ways our teachers are trained to get the best out of their time with us and we always ensure our classes are fun so they love to come back. Our focus is on helping children realise their swimming potential, whilst teaching personal survival skills to them.

We also offer one-to-one classes where your child will have a dedicated thirty minutes with one of our specialised teachers to get them where they want to be in their swimming journey.
