What our customers say:

"I can recommend Elite Swimming Academy in the strongest possible terms. My son was three and a half when he started his classes with Elite and was very nervous around water following some disastrous swimming lessons at our local leisure centre pool. After only one session with Anthony, he seemed entirely happy in the water. After two sessions, he was claiming that he "loved swimming". After a term, he had become a really confident swimmer. I have nothing but praise for Elite, Ed Williams and Anthony." 
C Ross.

"My two children (aged 7 and 3) just started with Elite after waiting for several months for suitable lesson times due to our other commitments and the popularity of the lessons! The classes were worth the wait - I noticed an improvement in their skills from their first lessons! I've recommended Elite to my friend for her 4 year old and she too is delighted! My kids' teachers are really nice, any emails are answered really quickly and the service as a whole is great!" 
E Watson

"Fabulous! I saw clear progress in just one lesson. I am a teacher and could have filmed the lesson for use in professional development! Excellent use of assessment for learning, clear instruction, personalised per participant and clear explanations of how and WHY! Super. We will be booking lessons for Christmas holidays if available."
Nikki Gabb

"I must let you know that although we have only had 5 lessons with you so far, I am more impressed with the progress that Jacob has made in just 5 lessons than he has made in 5 years of our previous swimming lessons! Clear instruction, superb attention to detail and sheer professionalism every step of the way."
