A message from SWiM's founder

At Swim With Mark we have used our expert knowledge and over 25 years of experience to develop a swim school that provides the opportunity for you or your child to learn and develop a vital life skill in a fun, safe and engaging environment.


Our techniques are derived from research into Australian swimming philosophies; it is no coincidence that Australia are one of the world's leading swimming nations! We recognise that every swimmer's progression is unique and our teachers tailor our programme to ensure it is appropriate and inclusive.


Our teachers are energetic and passionate about swimming and are Amateur Swimming Association (ASA) or Swimming Teachers Association (STA) qualified. All teachers are also Lifeguard trained (RLSS), DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) cleared and fully insured.


Having watched our own little Tiddler find his water wings, we appreciate the peace of mind - and the pride - a lifelong love and respect of water can bring!
