About Us

Gerry & Rose have been teaching swimming lessons for over 30 years.  Their business has gone from strength to strength with the use of additional pools in the Berkshire area.  Together, with a staff of more than 10 teachers, they teach over 600 children per week. 

GR Swimming Schools offer a high standard of swimming tuition in a safe environment for children of all abilities, from 3 years of age through to Academy level.  All the swimming lessons are taught in small classes with a ratio of 6 children per teacher. The children enjoy their fun swimming lessons with their experienced and friendly swimming teachers.  All teaching staff are qualified Amateur Swimming Association (ASA) or Swimming Teachers Association (STA) teachers and are DBS checked with an up to date insurance policy. The Teachers also have either National Teachers Rescue or Life Savers Award. 

Many swimmers have progressed to poolside helpers, and once old enough have had training themselves and become Swimming teachers.  This ensures the high standard of teaching is continued.  

The aim of GR Swimming Schools is to produce confident and safe swimmers through their monitored program. They expect all swimmers to achieve a high standard of stroke technique and water safety skills required to enjoy other water based activities.

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."

  • "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 MBracknell
  • "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."

  • "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."JennyNewbury
