It is with great sadness that I am posting this message.

I have made the decision to shut down the swim school and postpone classes until the current crisis has passed and we can return and pick up from where we left off.

I would love to have tried to continue, but with the recent advice to avoid unnecessary contact, I feel it was the best thing to do in order to keep both children and staff safe, and some of my staff have also been told to work from as they work in essential services and cant afford to become sick.

I hope you all understand my decision and I can assure you all spaces on the registers will be safe until we start back again. (much like when we have had to shut down due to pool issues!)

Shutdown is from immediate effect.

Stay safe everyone.

About Fins Swim School

At Fins Swim School, we believe correct technique should be encouraged throughout your child’s swimming journey.

Swimming lessons, when taught correctly, can develop good motor skills, agility, balance, co-ordination, strength and fitness and can also help your child succeed in other sporting activities.

We test Children every 10th week using our own awards scheme which enables you to track their progress and our teachers encourage your child to ENJOY the water. Knowing how the water works builds confidence as they learn what they can do themselves

There is also plenty of variety within the swim school, with Rookie lifeguard, Mermaid swimming, Synchronised swimming and our own club/fitness sessions that will keep them interested in a lifesaving skill that will stay with them for life.

Our swimming lessons run all year round, we only break for Christmas, Easter and bank holidays or if the pool is closed for maintenance.

Fins swim School aims to deliver fun, safe lessons for all ages from babies upwards. We devised our own awards scheme, that includes both water safety and swimming skills, So if your little swimmer wishes to become an Olympic swimmer, our awards will ensure a smooth transition into a swimming club environment.

Wearing a mermaid tail isn’t quite as simple as putting one on and swimming. We ask that anyone interested in trying this activity is able to swim at least 25m confidently. It is not recommended for non/ weak swimmers.

Fins Swim School was started in May 2007 by Lesley Wilde. Lesley is a world Masters swimming champion and world record holder with over 35 years competitive swimming experience under her belt. She is still an active masters swimmer, training 3+ times a week with the local swimming club, so is well knowledged in all aspects of swimming laws.

Swimming lessons, when taught correctly, can develop good motor skills, agility, balance, co-ordination, strength and fitness and can also help your child succeed in other sporting activities.
