We run swimming classes for babies and children from 4months old. We have small classes of no more than 6 children in our babies, beginners and improvers classes. Teachers teach from within the water and we also have in the water assistants. Classes focus on teaching the basic water skills as well as water safety. We have classes suitable for all ages from the very young nervous beginners to advanced swimmers ready to learn competitive or fitness skills. We also offer Rookie Lifeguard courses and holiday crash courses.

Kingfishers Swim School has not run any activities for over two months. We’re trying to get an up-to-date schedule.
I’ve started my son swimming rather late at age 9, he swims with children a little younger, but he has been made so welcome and absolutely loves it , his swimming and confidence is amazing in such little time too. Thank you kingfishers 😊
We tried four different swim schools with our children over the years, with our youngest son making little progress, due to nerves and motivation issues. Since coming to Kingfishers three years ago they have both made fantastic progress and love their swimming days. Water safety is taught as well as technique and a clear easy to follow sticker chart system allows the parents to know what they are doing and monitor progress towards badges. The ratio of teachers to students is great, and adapts with ability not age, the admin is well run and the pool rarely closes due to situations beyond their control. We love Kingfishers.
Great swimschool for all ages, friendly teachers who work well with the children.
Hi, my name is Denise. I learned to swim at the King Edmund School (KES) while my mum was the council instructor there. I qualified myself in 1985 and worked for various swim schools before taking over lessons at King Edmund in September 1990. I have three children who all learned to swim with Kingfishers and all play an active role in the swimschool now. I love my job and get real satisfaction from seeing the children do something for the first time, whether it be the most nervous child getting in the pool without any tears to the more advanced children completing their 5000m badge!
Hi, I'm Hazel I have worked for the swim school since 2006. I am married and have three grown-up sons. During the day I work as the administrator for Kingfishers and am usually your first point of contact when you email or phone us. I love teaching swimming and find my job very rewarding.
Hi, my name is Jordan. I have been swimming at Kingfishers for my whole life as I'm Denise's youngest daughter. I qualified as a Level 2 Instructor and now teach at the swim school. I love outdoor adventurous activities and have worked at children's outdoor centres across the country, mostly leading groups of school children. I am an ASA Adult and Child qualified Instructor for the under 3's.
Hi, I'm Sophie. As Denise's eldest daughter I've also been around a long time! I have worked at the swim school since 2002 when I started helping with the younger classes. Since then, I trained as a Level 1 and 2 instructor before heading off the university to study Primary Education. I have worked in local primary schools as a teacher, but have recently left to run Thursday, Friday and Saturday Kingfishers. I am an ASA Adult and Child qualified Instructor for the under 3's and I have a young baby myself. I am excited to be offering the new Adult and Child classes at Kingfishers.
