Why learn to swim with the Carol Saunders Swim School?


Making the decision to learn to swim can be a scary prospect, at any age, so it’s important for us to let you know who we are, and what you can expect from our classes if you choose to learn with us!


Where it all began…

Carol’s own love of swimming began at a very early age, her passion drove her to swim competitively at both County and District levels and at 18 she gained her Swimming Teaching Certificate.


In 1987 Carol took the big step to become self-employed and with a class of six swimmers at Sherburn High School, North Yorkshire, she began. Now 30 years on Carol is founder of a number of successful competitive swimming clubs and still coaches and develops swimmers, with many who have gone on to become National Finalists!


Where we are now…

The Swim School continues to grow, with lessons now available in 10 locations nationwide. The School pride itself on delivering high quality lessons, making sure each session is progressive, safe and fun.


Our lessons….

Our swimming lessons are available for all ages and abilities, from our Tiddlers classes that welcome babies into the water to Advanced Challenge Awards that take our swimmers to competition level. No matter your age or previous experience, we have a lesson that will suit your personal requirements, have a look at our lessons here. If you aren’t sure what session would be best for you or your little swimmer, please get in touch and our team will be able to help advise you!


Who will be teaching you…

We think of our team as our family in the world of aquatics, and each and every member adds an integral role to the Swim School. You can learn more about our teachers and the swim family here.


What our swimmers say…

Of course, we don’t expect you to just take our word for it, so here are what some of our swimmers have recently said about our classes and teachers…


“We absolutely love the swimming lessons here. It is not just about learning to swim but taking the time to make the children feel safe, happy and enjoying the water. I would recommend these swimming lessons to anyone. A very happy mum!”


“Both of my boys’ love coming swimming at Carol Saunders Swim School. The teachers make it fun in a structured way and our little girl cannot wait to start. Keep up the good work!”


“I just wanted to say, the swim teachers are amazing. They make the children feel at ease and comfortable in the water. They really bring them on quickly and are fantastic with the children. My little girl is doing amazing and I can see how well other children do as well. Highly recommended!!”
