Customer Reviews

  • "We not only had one but two quandaries - our 3 year old daughter really didn't like the water, and refused to get her hair wet and would only enter the pool fully armed with rubber ring armbands and any other flotation device readily available. We were recommended to GR by a work colleague, and were instantly attracted by the good qualified instructor to child ratio (max 6:1), and that all instructors met the ASA qualification high standards."

    Mr Mears Harmanswater
  • "Both our daughters have gone through the swimming school, from toddlers with arm bands to technique and race training. The quality of teaching and friendly encouragement has help them gain many badges and skill levels. The swimming school provides first class teaching with small classes which leads to continual progress. I regularly recommend it to friends."

    Mr M Bracknell
  • "Our 10 year old twins, were at the age of 7 non-swimmers with a fear of water despite our attempts to take them swimming. It all changed with a holiday swimming course run by GR Swimming Schools, just before their Summer holidays. From that point on they were on their way to become good swimmers through the school. Their progression was quite remarkable and well beyond what we expected."

    Mr and Mrs F Reading
  • "I wanted to say a HUGE thank you. Before joining the swimming club, my girls were frightened of the water and now they’re getting more and more confident by the week. What you guys have achieve in just a couple of terms, we couldn’t achieve in 7 years of trying. Thank you."
