Welcome to the Fiona Leeson Swimming School PDF Print E-mail

The Swimming School is a privately run school that aims to deliver small well run classes in which all pupils can achieve their full potential. All of our teachers are experienced and regularly update their teaching and lifesaving skills. All staff are fully CRB checked.

We believe that swimming is an asset for life

We offer a high standard of swimming tuition in a safe environment for children of all abilities from 3 years of age upwards. Safety is paramount and all swimmers are taught to treat the water with respect. They learn correct entry and exit techniques, treading water and other safety skills.

At present we have the use of the pool at the Barnabas Adventure Centre in the Weald (Sevenoaks), which is a 15m by 8m pool and is perfect for teaching both non-swimmers and improvers.We also run lessons in the Hildenborough school Pool in Riding Lane, this pool is also suitable for all levels. There is only ever one class running in the pool at anyone time so children cannot be distracted by other lessons taking place.

We follow the ASA National plan for the teaching of swimming, which has recently been revised to include a wider range of skills from young swimmers through to pre-competition swimmers. We also teach the skills necessary to pass the challenge awards Bronze /Silver /Gold and at the end of each term all children are given the opportunity to gain and achieve certificates and badges.

In the summer term, as a large proportion of children take holidays near swimming pools or by the sea, we feel it is important to teach basic water survival skills and have recently introduced children to the Rookie Lifeguard Award Scheme run by the RLSS. However the main aim of the school is to teach children how to swim and really develop their technique and where possible help them to progress to club level.
