"My 5 year old son started Hook Swim School in April 2017.

He enjoyed splashing in the water but wasn't very confident.

Now in his second term he is able to swim under water and do a number of strokes in a confident manner.

He enjoys the lessons very much and with small classes the instructor can give their time to each student. A very well run swim school and highly recommend."

""My son has been attending swim lessons for nearly 3 years now at hook swim school and continues to love it.

The teachers are lovely and as such my sons confidence and ability has developed hugely.

Because of this my daughter and I now do baby swim lessons which is not only great for her but a good workout for me too.

Thank you"

I was a competitive swimmer for 20 years with local swimming clubs. My favorite stroke is Butterfly. I qualified as a swimming teacher in 2014. I enjoy teaching all age groups from babies to club standards. I also teach Aqua Aerobic classes at Hook Swim School.

I have had great pleasure in teaching swimming for over ten years. I strive for water confidence, good technique and of course fun within my lesson. I want my swimmiers to enjoy their progress and develop on their own ability to become competent swimmers.

I have been teaching swimming for almost 3 years and have enjoyed every moment. I’ve worked in SEN school which has given me experience. It has also meant I’ve learnt many techniques of teaching too. I used to be a club swimmer so I work well with experienced swimmers, however, I love seeing beginners progress through their swim journeys.
