We used the West Grinstead swimming academy for an intensive course over the Easter holidays and I urge anyone considering it to just do it. On day 1 our little one was terrified and wouldn’t get in the water but by day 5 he was a different child. Vikki was so incredibly patient and adapted to a pace he felt comfortable with. We have since booked additional classes.
Amazing, dedicated, patient, and kind teachers who get to know each child and their personality really well. Each teacher uses their experience and enthusiasm to develop lessons that not only teach amazing skills but are also fun and supportive for children of different ages and abilities. They are dedicated to giving children a genuine love of and confidence in the water. Both of my daughters have developed a real love of swimming and gained amazing skills and confidence under their expert guidance and care. We also love the ample viewing area, roomy changing rooms, and the warmth of the pool.
Nick is an amazing swim teacher. His ability to hold the attention of little ones and getting the best out of them is second to none...they just love being taught by him! The new West Grinstead facility is amazing too....so clean and well equipped - the perfect learning environment.Thank you Nick and WGSA!
We love our regular swimming lessons. Hayley and Vikki are excellent instructors and they really know their stuff. We would highly recommend West Grinstead Swim Academy. It is very easy to get to and the small details such as having toys in the changing rooms really makes a difference when you are there with children. Thank you so much! We are beyond grateful for Hayley’s kindness, patience and her ability to know when to push the children to realise their potential while maintaining their confidence levels. Maya started swimming only a few months ago and has been transformed from being nervous of the water to jumping in and swimming a length and always looking forward to her next lesson!
