Welcome to Our Learn to Swim Programme 


Our Learn to Swim Programme is coordinated by Alice Reeves (LTS Admin) and Angela Parry Fernandez (Head Teacher).  We predominately work serving residents of Yateley, Aldershot, Farnborough and surrounding areas.

We have a teaching team of over 25, made up of Teachers, Assistant Teachers, Lifeguards, Water Helpers, Admin Assistants and Receptionists.

All of our teachers have achieved a Swim England Level 1 or Level 2 qualification.  They all hold and regularly update their safeguarding certificates as well as renewing their enhanced DBS check every 3 years. They are encouraged to seek additional CPD opportunities and regularly attend in-house training by a Royal Lifesaving Society Trainer Assessor to keep their lifesaving knowledge up to date.

Since 2020, our LTS Programme has more than doubled in size.  We take children from 3 years until they finish our programme.  Once swimmers have achieved this goal, we will give them the opportunity to trial and join our Academy Programme.

Our Learn to Swim lessons follow the Swim England syllabus 'Stages 1-7'.  It is the most widely known swimming lessons for children and is the backbone of lessons for Primary School Children. 

Our teacher to swimmer ratio is as follows:

Ducklings, Stage 1 and 2 are taught by a teacher, assisted by 2 water helpers in the water (3:6)

Stage 3 classes are taught by a teacher, assisted by 1 water helper in the water (2:6)

Stage 4 & 5 classes are taught by a teacher poolside to max of 7 children

Stage 6 and 7 are taught by a teacher poolside to a max of 10 children 

We feel it is important to get to know our customers on an individual basis in order to tailor the lessons to their individual needs.


Swim England recommends that children do not just stop going to lessons once they can swim.  Increasing their competence in the water helps to make sure they keep themselves safe.
