SwimWay Swimming Lessons In London

A New Concept In Swimming Development
sw-icon
Leading The Way

SwimWay is the leading home-visit children's swimming lessons provider in London.  Since 2005, SwimWay has provided high-quality swimming lessons in luxurious London venues.  Classes are available for parents and babies, children and adults.  Keep up to date with all our developments and updates in our FAQs, blogs and various social media outlets!

Specialised Service

SwimWay specialises in private or semi-private swimming lessons (children/adults), and small group swimming lessons (parent and baby).  Thus, our students receive full, direct support inside the water from their teacher. This allows them to use only a kickboard as a floatation device without sacrificing safety measures. Other swim schools often use backpacks, shark wings and noodles which inevitably delays the learning process.  There is no doubt that SwimWay swimming lessons are the go-to option in London!

Methodology & Development

The SwimWay swimming lesson programme works on fundamentals to start.  This includes breath control, buoyancy, body position, gliding and correct leg kick action.  Only then can we introduce the full stroke. Students that are given the correct core elements will thrive in their swimming lessons and become good swimmers.

Testimonials

“Our instructor has been so fantastic with my child. We are on holiday at the moment and I can't believe how well he is swimming, and how happy he is in the water!”

Kate
Children's Term Time Lessons

"My son has been learning to swim for 3 years and is very cautious around water. He had his first lesson with SwimWay, and I couldn't believe what I was witnessing! I was very teary. He was doing stuff I have never seen him do before and he talked about swimming afterwards, and what he was going to do the next week. The instructor was amazing!”

Helen
Children's Term Time Lessons

“Our instructor has improved my daughter’s swimming at lightning pace. She has built trust, and most importantly confidence whilst in the water. It is clear the instructor adores the children, and is so kind and nurturing. They can’t wait to come back lesson after lesson! You can see she is always prepped for each lesson, which is clearly planned to get the best out of the child as an individual. Her diligence is evident in how well my daughter’s swimming ability is developing. We look forward to each lesson with glee. Thank you!"

Truska
Children's Term Time Lessons

“I wanted to say what a pleasure it has been for the children to swim with our instructor. He is an excellent teacher and he has the patience of Jobe dealing with my two at the same time! He has really helped them to improve and most important of all, the children absolutely love him.”

Harriet
Children's Term Time Lessons

“Both girls are brimming with excitement in anticipation for their lesson. They love it and I can see how patient the instructor is with two very strong minded little girls. He makes the class fun as well as structured and I can see how much they both have progressed since starting this term.”

Liza
Children's Holiday Courses

“There is no doubt that SwimWay is the most efficient provider of out-of-school classes that my children have attended in the last 5 years, and for that, as a busy mother, I am very grateful.”

Jenny
Children's Term Time & Holiday Lessons

"I had my two boys in for private lessons the first week of August. Their instructor was really professional, and so well worth it. I hope to have them attend another boot camp in October to add to their confidence and skill. We are not there yet, but it has really helped get them on their way to being competent swimmers."

Sandra
Children’s Holiday Courses

“Wow, my children have improved so much this week I’ve been so impressed! They have really enjoyed their teacher - she has been just the right amount of strict and fun, and has been so encouraging about their swimming. They also loved their teacher last week who was very good at getting them water confident. Both teachers have ensured they have made the maximum progress whilst having fun.”

Iona
Children’s Holiday Courses

“My son has LOVED his swimming lessons! His confidence has really grown in the week of swimming. We were so impressed with the instructor’s approach, he's been amazingly patient.”

Anna
Children’s Holiday Courses

“Thank you for the great work you do in organising so many classes, teachers and children throughout the term. You guys have been flawless in your execution, and exemplary in your communication, and it makes all the difference. Huge shout out too to our instructors who have brought my daughters along in LEAPS AND BOUNDS this term. As Aussies, swimming is incredibly important to us, and I was beginning to fear my girls would never get comfortable with the water. I can very happily say now though that they have both turned into little fishies this term, and will be counting down til next term. I have said this to many friends, you guys are expensive, but you are worth every single penny.”

Lauren
Children's Term Time Lessons

“The instructors are brilliant, the little girl I look after loves swimming so much! We always look forward to her lesson – she is so excited!”

Eniko

Laura

Caroline
Children's Holiday Courses

“I was very impressed with the management as well as the teaching. We have been with many swimming clubs, but SwimWay definitely has the most professional management of all.”

Mari
Children's Term Time Lessons

“Thank you SwimWay! My son went to a swim club assessment on Saturday and he looked to be by far the best 6 year old swimmer there. I saw 7 and 8 year olds who did not swim as well as him!”

Richard
Children's Term Time Lessons

“I couldn't get over my daughter’s swimming! In particular the fantastic diving. She turned 6 last month, and I am very certain I could not swim like that at her age!”

Emma
Children's Term Time Lessons

“Thank you for making my child safe in the water! We are in Greece with a pool and he is so much safer and swimming too!”

Natasha
Children's Term Time Lessons

Kelley

“Thanks to Swimway for providing such quality instruction!”

Jennifer
Children's Term Time Lessons

“My daughter thoroughly enjoyed the course, and I couldn't believe that by the fourth session she was actually making her way through the water unaided! The instructor was wonderful, and really made an impact.”

Caroline
Children's Term Time Lessons

“SwimWay’s methods are so far-reaching! My daughter was watching a mermaid in trouble on TV, and shouted out: “Don’t worry Ricky! Just do your rocket arms!”

Francesca
Children's Term Time Lessons

“After trying out a couple of different swim classes, I can say that our SwimWay instructor is by far the best swimming instructor we have ever had!”

Lauren
Children's Term Time Lessons

"I had anxiety about the lesson today after my son’s last unsuccessful lesson with another swim school but WOW! I am so happy! I have no doubt that he will blossom under your tuition!"

Vanessa
Children's Holiday Courses

“SwimWay has been fantastic for both my boys. After a few weeks my first son has been so confident in and under the water. My younger son is in the process of learning to swim, but he too is making wonderful progress. He is so relaxed and happy in the water and our instructor knows exactly what she is doing and how to get the best out of him. I couldn't recommend SwimWay more highly!”

Zoe
Children's Term Time Lessons

“I am delighted with the children's swimming lessons! Both instructors are fantastic and my children are progressing so well. They have a lovely manner and their teaching is first class. The kids really look forward to going each week!”

Rachel
Children's Term Time Lessons

“Our instructor is the best swim teacher I have ever come across. He got my daughter into the pool no problem, and couldn't get my son out because he had so much fun! He is very talented and I am thrilled my kids can learn to swim in such a fun way!”

Harriet
Children's Term Time Lessons

“We have thoroughly enjoyed working with your instructors. They are excellent teachers and very patient and kind!”

Diana
Children's Term Time & Holiday Lessons

“My son’s sessions with Swimway have been amazing! He bounces through the door afterwards, always full of excitement, and told me he used to believe he would never be able to do some of things he has been taught. He has had some problems at school, these lessons feel like the first really positive thing in quite some time!”

Alice
Children's Term Time Lessons

“I have been so impressed with my instructor and his tuition. I have seen a huge improvement in my daughter’s technique. She is really loving swimming, and as we walked home after the first lesson she said that her instructor was ‘the best teacher ever!’”

Sandy
Children's Term Time Lessons

“All three of my sons have been taught at SwimWay and I could not recommend the instructors more highly. They are extremely patient and fun, and the small classes mean the teachers really get to know the children well, which helps them progress quickly.”

Vicky
Children's Term Time Lessons

“My daughter has just got into the Chelsea & Westminster swimming club (as did her brother last year). This is all down to SwimWay. The trials were really onerous with over 160 children competing for very few places. So thank you for all the excellent coaching!”

Suzanne
Children's Term Time Lessons

“My boys have made incredible progress thanks to the expertise and patience of their coach. For the first time in almost three years, my oldest son has really enjoyed going to swim lessons. The instructor’s enthusiasm and creativity has made a huge difference to his learning.”

Ligia
Children's Term Time Lessons

“Thank you for the amazing few years we have had with Swimway! My daughter has a deep love of swimming thanks to both of her teachers. Thank you all for turning my children into two fearless fishes!”

Natasha

“We have loved our experience at SwimWay!”

Melissa
Children's Term Time Lessons

“We had our first lesson yesterday, and my daughter was quite apprehensive about going into the pool. But the instructor was just lovely and got her swimming within minutes! Great facilities too. We are delighted with everything!”

Catja
Children's Term Time Lessons

“We Love the SwimWay ethos. We love the SwimWay instructors. We love the SwimWay small, attentive classes. We love the clean, warm SwimWay pools. Best of all... because of SwimWay, my 5 year old loves swimming classes!!”

Michelle
Children's Term Time Lessons

“Both children really respond well to our instructor’s teaching style, which is great! He seems very focused on their development and appears genuinely pleased to see them progress. I'm really glad we chose SwimWay for our lessons. You are showing yourselves to be a very professional company, with great facilities and teachers alike!”

Laura
Children's Term Time Lessons

“My daughter LOVES her instructor and says he's really fun! She is so excited to have more swimming lessons with him and to be honest, that's all we could ever have hoped for. Our Australian au pair (who is herself a former junior champion swimmer) says he seems great!”

Tania
Children's Term Time Lessons

“Our instructor has been such an excellent teacher for the two terms my children have been with him. He is engaging, patient, firm and funny. Perfect for two rowdy boys! My sons really enjoyed their class every week, and looked forward to it. He made swimming fun but they also progressed significantly during their time with him.”

Jocelyn
Children's Term Time Lessons

“Thank you! While watching my son’s lessons, I felt compelled to say how amazing the instructor is! He has a fantastically lovely manner and is an amazing teacher. We are so pleased with Swimway, and always have been since our very first enquiry! Thank you for doing such a great job.”

Michelle
Children's Term Time Lessons

“My daughter thoroughly enjoyed the course, and I couldn't believe that by the fourth session she was actually making her way through the water unaided! The instructor was wonderful, and really made an impact.”

Ashley
Children's Holiday Courses

“The SwimWay swimming courses have been great for our son over the past two years. Our instructor has been a wonder! We couldn't have wished for more. What a motivational teacher and a fun woman!”

Kristy
Children's Term Time & Holiday Lessons

“My son was so scared, and at the beginning of week I thought it would be a waste of money. However I was really pleased with the progress that Alex made by the end of the crash course. Our instructor was very patient and made the lessons really fun.”

Jody
Children's Holiday Courses

"Our instructor has been so fantastic with my child. We are on holiday at the moment and I can't believe how well he is swimming, and how happy he is in the water!”

Sophie
Children's Term Time Lessons

"We loved our time with SwimWay!”

Lindsey
Parent & Baby Lessons

"My three-year-old grandson did a holiday course with Alberto as his teacher. I was very impressed with the way the sessions were organised, with the standard of teaching, and the care and sensitivity taken over the interaction with all the children. I would whole-heartedly recommend SwimWay to any parent or carer. My grandson thoroughly enjoyed himself, was made to feel secure in the water and also benefitted from the attention the sessions afforded him. He laughed a lot and he learned a lot."

Lyn
Children's Holiday Courses

“We are really pleased and want to say a huge thank you to our instructor for all his work with our daughter’s swimming this year.  She has loved her lessons and will miss him!”

Fiona
Children's Term Time Lessons

“My child was on a crash course all last week and I just wanted to pass on my thanks for all that the instructor achieved with her.  She couldn’t have been a better teacher and was so kind and patient throughout the lessons.  My daughter was quite anxious each morning but by the end of the week was swimming a length unassisted.  I can’t praise the teacher enough and am equally proud of my daughter!”

Lucy
Children's Holiday Courses

“I just wanted to pass on enormous thanks to our instructor for a wonderful first lesson for my son! He has repeatedly told me since the lesson finished that he LOVED it! He has never loved (or even liked!) his previous swimming lessons, or instructors, and was not keen to attend today.  But our instructor did a fantastic job of gaining his trust and my son was in the pool within minutes and smiling throughout!  I was not expecting such an outcome and had actually envisaged that I’d be emailing to report that we wouldn’t be continuing...  so am delighted to say that we both look forward to next week!”

Sarah
Children's Term Time Lessons

“My son has had the best time and our instructor has been absolutely amazing, we are so grateful.  And my other son has also come on so much.  Honestly, he is a different child in the water now, it's amazing!”

Chloe
Children's Term Time Lessons

“I wanted to say what a great teacher our instructor is!  I’ve been meaning to say for a while, but he is absolutely fantastic with my daughter and all the other children!  He has made such a difference to her confidence!”

Eve
Children's Term Time Lessons

"It was a real pleasure to collaborate with SwimWay.  Our instructor was a very kind teacher.  She was patient, funny and happy, making the swimming lessons very pleasant for my baby and me.  Unfortunately, I ended the collaboration with them because I moved from London.  But I really recommend SwimWay for their professionalism!"

Maria
Parent & Baby Lessons

"A huge thank you for helping my son learn to swim. I cannot thank you enough. He has gone from refusing to enter the water, to wanting to dive in! He talks about his instructors all the time! Thank you for your help and patience. It's amazing to see."

Juliet
Children's Term Time Lessons

"We are honestly extremely fortunate to have found a session with our instructor.  Her energy is contagious, I don't know how she keeps it up class after class. She's enthusiastic, excited and manages to push the kids just the right amount. Her patience is inspirational. And our previous instructors too – my son still talks about them very fondly.  They were so patient, professional and warm.  You have a fantastic team.  We will be sure to continue to recommend SwimWay to our friends.  No amount of thanking, chocolates or cards can truly demonstrate how grateful I am as a parent."

Tahira
Children's Term Time & Holiday Lessons

“Thank you all for five years of inspiring swimming tuition!  Your talented instructors have given both my children a love of swimming which I hope will stay with them through their life.  In particular, our instructor always manages to make learning fun.  He has been a motivation for both my children.  I have often recommended SwimWay over the years and will continue to do so.”

Sarah
Children's Term Time & Holiday Lessons

“Our instructor has been amazing for both of our children and I am sure we will struggle to find someone as good once we move!”

Lizzy
Children's Term Time Lessons

"The instructor gained our son’s trust very quickly and was able to guide him from just blowing bubbles to eventually diving underwater and swimming a few meters unaided. This was a massive achievement and we are super grateful for such great progress. It was lovely to see my son’s confidence grow during the week, and he is now even asking to go swim again!"

Saana
Children's Holiday Lessons

"My son’s swimming lessons have been amazing, we are so thrilled – his teacher is amazing!"

Sophie
Children's Holiday Lessons

"I just wanted to say how fantastic you guys have been with the swimming lessons during the pandemic. It is brilliant. It is so secure. It went way beyond what was required, but that’s the SwimWay team for you!  I think it is brilliant what you guys have done, well done!"

Cecilia
Children's Holiday Lessons

"We have been really impressed by the quality of teaching and thank our daughter’s coach very much for his patience and enthusiasm. She is really enjoying it."

Hilary
Children's Holiday Lessons

"My daughters just spent 3 days on a holiday course in Wimbledon. They had a fantastic time and really enjoyed being with their instructor again! Yet again, he has inspired the girls and made them want to do more swimming!"

Joanne
Children's Holiday Lessons

"Everything ran so smoothly today for my daughter’s lesson. The one-way system was brilliant and the guy organising everyone was a superstar. It’s clear that you and your team have worked really hard to put all of these new COVID-19 procedures in place, so I just wanted to say thank you. It was great to be back swimming again!"

Belinda
Children's Term Time Lessons

"My son LOVED his lesson yesterday. All evening he kept voluntarily saying how good it was and what a great time he had. He doesn't usually say things like that! He also said he wanted to go underwater and that he was going to try next week. Which is amazing because on the way there he was terrified that he would have to put his head under. I don't know how you manage to get his confidence up so fast! Thank you!"

Lauren
Children's Term Time Lessons

"Incredibly impressed with SwimWay. My children’s swim coach had them both doing more in their first lesson than they had managed to do in the year that preceded it. Both kids were nervous about water and spent their first lesson with SwimWay laughing while they learnt. They both ask when the next swimming day is now. Highly recommend."

Kirsty
Children's Term Time Lessons

"Just want to say how much my daughter is loving her lessons. She’s genuinely excited for her Fridays with her instructor!! So delighted to have moved lessons to SwimWay as we are new this term, worth every penny. Thank you so much and please give my huge, huge thanks to her instructor, she’s fab!"
