Our Story

Wessex Swim School started in July 2004 as a private swim school in Winchester with just 3 teachers and a handful of clients. The swimming teachers noted how well children in smaller classes improved at a much faster rate than those in his larger classes and set maximum numbers in every class to just 3 pupils. Unlike other swim schools where helpers are brought in to lower class ratios, all members of staff are qualified teachers, insured and have an enhanced CRB check. Classes will only increase to 5 pupils after they have reached Stage 5 and the class will be extended to 45 minutes.

Now with an impressive 50 qualified members of staff, teaching over 900 pupils in 3 cities and 5 pools, Wessex Swim School is THE swim school for high quality affordable tuition on the South Coast.
