Gerry & Rose Madden - the founders of GR Swimming School have been teaching swimming lessons for over 30 years. Their business went from strength to strength with the use of additional pools in the Berkshire area. Together, with a staff of more than 10 teachers, they taught over 600 children per week.
One of their teachers Jo, over the years, helped support Rose & Gerry both front of house and behind the scenes. So when they made the difficult decision to reduce their teaching hours in the area - Jo was the natural choice. They know that Jo shares and will continue to promote GR's success and unique teaching structure for many years to come.
GR Swimming Schools offers a high standard of swimming tuition in a safe environment for children of all abilities, from Baby swim through to Academy levels. Classes with a ratio of 6 children per teacher, academy and babyswim may differ. Children enjoy their fun swimming lessons with their experienced and friendly swimming teachers. All teaching staff are qualified Swim England (was ASA) or Swimming Teachers Association (STA) and are DBS checked with a current insurance policy. Teachers hold either National Teachers Rescue or Life Savers Award. Baby teachers are fully qualified.
Many swimmers progress to poolside helpers, and once old enough have become Swimming teachers. This ensures the high standard of teaching is continued, but also reflects the fun yet professional atmosphere!
GR Swimming Schools aim 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. Baby swim helps early development core skills as recommended by the Early Years Foundation Stages.
