We aim to pass on our passion for the water to the people that we work with because we love to create new swimmers and we know that swimming is a life skill as well as opening doors to other water based sports.
Our swimming lessons are enjoyable and engaging because we understand that is how children learn best.
Most importantly though, we teach people how to swim safely because we know that swimming is such a vital skill and we want to play our part in reducing the number of drownings seen annually in this country. We know that teaching people to swim confidently and properly could one day save their life and is therefore the most important sport your child could participate in.
In January 2015 Brooks Swim School was opened by Daisy, who has over 14 years experience teaching swimming. Daisy has a passion for swimming herself and trained with a swim club when she was younger and more recently has competed in many open water swimming events around the country, most noticeably a five mile swim in Coniston Water in the Lake District. Daisy has taught for various private swim schools in this country and has also done volunteer work teaching children to swim in Ghana and South Africa. This tested her ability to work with large classes of children with little knowledge of their ability or resources and equipment.
Working in a range of environments enabled Daisy to create a vision for her own swim school which is what you see at Brooks Swim School today- small class sizes and enthusiastic teachers to ensure children learn this vital life skill and are safe and happy in the water. Brooks Swim School now teaches over 400 swimmers a week and aims to pass on our love for swimming as well as teaching people to be safe in the water.
The staff at Brooks Swim School all have a background in swimming, a passion for water and lots of great ideas to ensure the children and adults they teach become confident and comfortable in the water. Most of our teachers have swum competitively at some point and are very knowledgable about technical aspects of each stroke. This enables us to teach each stroke correctly, as well as making sure the children have some fun on the way to becoming a swimmer too!
Mission statement: We believe everyone has the right to learn to swim and aim to make swimming lessons accessible for everyone in the local community. We are committed to ensuring people feel safe and comfortable in the water and offer high quality, affordable swimming lessons for all ages and abilities; ranging from learning to swim to perfecting technique.
