SwimWay Swimming School Pool Focus: East Sheen Pools

Our pool focus blogs have covered Wimbledon and Putney. Now we move to an area that we have been happily established in for almost a decade: East Sheen.  A wonderful area in which we offer our services at three separate locations…


Our Gordon Avenue pool was the second public SwimWay location.  Since 2010, we have provided the community with the best private swimming lessons in the area.

Like our Luttrell Avenue Pool, we have a long-term partnership with the Gordon Avenue pool owners. Our personal approach to business helps us create long-lasting bonds with pool owners, schools and gyms; not to mention instructors and office staff.

The Gordon Avenue Pool was purpose-built for our operation.  It has a separate facilities security coded entrance. This leads into one of the most beautiful indoor pools I have ever had the pleasure of viewing!  The glass doors look out onto the wonderful garden, letting in a huge amount of natural light. Wonderful, especially in the sunny summer months!

Our 1:1 and 1:2 lessons run Mondays – Fridays from 1:30pm – 6:30pm for children aged 2 – 9 years. We book up to SwimWay Stage 6, but older/more advance children can sometimes – please contact us to enquire).

Free parking is available on Gordon Avenue and surrounding roads. Mortlake Station is an 11-minute walk, and there is a bus stop directly outside the house.

The location comes fitted with a changing area, toilet and shower. There is also a poolside viewing area for parents to watch their children learn to swim!


Our pool in The Mall: An immaculately presented, luxurious space on a private road in East Sheen.  In respect for the neighbours, we offer only 1:1 lessons at this location. We also do not allow any parking on the road itself. We work hard to ensure a courteous working relationship not only with the house owners but the surrounding neighbours too.  It is the only way to ensure long-lasting, fruitful business relationships.

The 1:1 lessons run on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday afternoons for children aged 2 – 9 years old from 1:30pm – 6:30pm.  Free parking is available, at the end of the road, a short walk to the venue.  There is also free parking also available on Fife Road, and the pool is an 18-minute walk from Mortlake Station.

The pool comes with a toilet, shower, changing cubicle and hairdryer. Don’t forget the poolside viewing area for you to watch your little fishes!


Every Summer, we are always excited about the opening of our heated open aid pool at Sheen Mount Primary School!

We work closely with the school providing after-school public lessons, and instructors to run their regular school time lessons.  We have kept up a fantastic working relationship with the school for a number of years now. The sunny outside swimming every summer remains a treat for everyone involved!  Our instructors teaching there always tend to have an incredibly enviable tan by the time our summer party comes along…

The lesson days vary from year to year, and full information can be found on the website here. We only allow children from the age of 4.5 years to join us at this pool. An outdoor pool where we run lessons even if it’s raining (unless there is a lightning storm), so unsuitable for younger children.

Free parking available on surrounding roads and it is a 15-minute walk to Mortlake Station.  There are separate male/female facilities, toilets, and a poolside viewing area.

You can join us for term time and holiday lessons during at our East Sheen Pools.  These are excellent locations with warm, hospitable environments, perfect for the children to learn and thrive in!
