About Me

We are York's longest running swim school, we've been passionate about teaching swimming since the early 1980s.

Alongside water confidence & personal survival skills, we focus on developing a strong swimming technique in all our learners from beginners (age 4+) through to achieving the Gold Award.

We have spaces on some days/times, with waiting lists for others ... but as we try to move children up as they are each ready to progress (rather than keeping whole groups together, often moving at the pace of the weakest) availability changes all the time.

Get your name on the list to get the time you want!
30 minute lessons between 4 and 6:

  • Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday at New Earswick Swimming Pool
  • Thursday at Robert Wilkinson Primary Academy Pool, Strensall


  • At the moment we will be running sessions between 3.45 & 4.45 (Mon-Wed) at New Earswick Pool only (opening date tbc - but hopefully as soon as possible after we are allowed to re-open on the 25th July!)
