Swimming Lessons with Elite Swim School

The Elite Swim School team has been nominated as both the UK’s Best School and Best Teacher for 2014. Our swimming lessons are taught in small numbers which means pupils are less distracted and get the attention they deserve from our Swimming teachers. Self saving skills are hugely important and overlooked in most swimming lessons; we aim to instil these techniques which combined with our specialised breathing techniques makes children feel safe and confident in the water, allowing us to move onto specific technique work.

Katie Cookson's Elite Swim School provides swimming lessons for all ages and abilities including adults and babies. Our swimming lessons are currently available in Wiltshire in Blacklands, Nr Calne and Marlborough College with more venues coming soon.

Elite's Swimming Teachers

All teachers are ASA and STA qualified but also undergo intensive Elite Swim School training which involves specialised breathing techniques and self saving skills. All of our swimming teachers teach our unique and exclusive Elite Swim School syllabus which follows the National ASA (Amateur Swimming Association) award scheme but also involves specialised techniques, skills and methods that have been specifically developed by Elite which makes our approach much more efficient.

Our swimming lessons are fun and effective and the results are amazing. Pupils progress very quickly and acquire the most important aspects of this life skill: technique and confidence. Children are rewarded with ASA certificates and parents also receive a detailed progress report for their child at the end of each term. Once all ASA certificates have been gained, pupils progress onto our Swim School Academy.
