Amazing swim school - my children have been going since they were toddlers, now 9 and 11. Both love swimming. Really recommend
Kingfishers is a great swim school. The teachers are all so kind and friendly as well as patient with the children.
They have coped so well over the last year to work things out and keep everyone happy with great communication. I wouldn’t go anywhere else for my children to learn.
Both my 7 year old and 5 year old love swimming at kingfishers, they have come on leaps and bounds in their time there. The staff are caring and have a real pride in the job they do
We are new to Kingfishers, only two lessons in, but cannot sing their praises enough! My boys are non-swimmers, already paddling across the width unaided, their faces are beaming in the water and come out smiling and happy. They’re loving it and long may it continue! Thank you Skye & Jorja
I would and have only ever recommended Kingfishers . My eldest son was so nervous to begin with , all staff members were soooo patient with him. Believe me , it did take time , however now he is a confident swimmer .
I now bring my youngest son , who yet again was a little nervous , however now always enjoys every session and watching his progress has been great .
Lovely staff , who are passionate in their roles xx
My children have been attending Kingfishers for over 4 years! My eldest, who is now 8 started as a non-swimmer, completely petrified of water. Now she is a wonderfully able swimmer who LOVES the water and enjoyed doing her Rookie Lifesavers badge with the swim school over the summer.
My youngest, has been swimming a year now and at the age of 4 is swimming without armbands, face in, and is loving the water. Thank you so much to all the teachers at Kingfishers who have helped my children to do so wel
My little boy has just started swimming lessons - on the drive to his first lesson he was nervous but as soon as he was introduced to his teachers he was fine. He thoroughly loves his lessons and looks forward to Thursdays. Could not recommend more.
We are delighted and impressed with Kingfishers Swim School, and would highly recommend it to all. Our daughter loves her lessons, and I am also pleased with the clear communication from the owners and swim teachers.
Super organisation and communication! My son is loving his lessons and looking forward to them each week - thank you!
Both my boys love their swimming lessons.
My eldest hasn’t had much confidence in swimming, but I feel he is gaining confidence, Thanks to Kingfishers swim school. I can’t Thank them enough and highly recommend anyone that is looking for great swimming lessons for their children.
Denise taught my brother’s and I to swim , years ago so it is lovely to bring my boys to the same swim school.
Also... the family swim on a Saturday is great! We had a lovely time!
Gave my boys time in the pool, building more confidence and some quality family time. Thank you
My daughter has loved her swimming lessons here from day one! She gets so excited about going and never wants to get out of the pool! All swimming teachers are so friendly and supportive of the children! Madeline is currently with Jordan and Absolutley loves her lessons with her and has gained so much confidence with her! Thank you Kingfishers!
Took granddaughter to her class today, fire alarm went off. I cannot praise all the teaching staff enough for the calm evacuation they carried out. Everyone out and accounted for wrapped up in space blankets. No fuss at all. Back in the pool as soon as all clear confirmed. Total professionals. Well done all xxx
My son Bobby started swimming with kingfishers swim school around 5 months ago he was doing really well and soon moved up. He went through a really weird phase of being really scared to swim and just screaming and crying was really awful for me to watch but the way denise dealt with it was amazing they all couldn't do enough to help Bobby get over this fear and now he is back to swimming under water and loving it again. so would highly recommend.
Cannot recommend Kingfishers enough! Our little boy started at 4 months old, and 5 months later he is so confident in the water and enjoys bath/swimming time immensely. The staff are warm and friendly, as well as incredibly knowledgeable. They take a real interest in the children’s development and get to know them as individuals, all whilst maintaining a safe environment for all. Don’t hesitate in starting lessons with your children here!
My little girl loves going to her swimming lessons all the staff are great with the kids
My daughters not been going for that long but has improved loads
Alice, 4 and a half, has just finished her first half term with Kingfishers after a year of lessons elsewhere, and we are so happy we moved! The lessons are so much more focused, and yet fun at the same time. The sticker card record keeping is brilliant, Alice is so motivated to progress, and can't wait to earn her first award! The water safety lesson I witnessed today was fun to watch and such an important skill for all of us to learn.
Well what can I say, my granddaughters first ever lesson today and she started off with 3 arm rings by the end of the lesson she was swimming by herself, 1 very proud Nanny, thank you so much team Kingfisher you made a little girl (and Nanny) very happy
My (almost 5yo) daughter was struggling with her swimming but has come on leaps and bounds since she started at Kingfishers. We started off with 1-2-1 lessons, incredible progress after each lesson and now she is in a group class. She has so much confidence in the water now. My (almost 3yo) son started classes today and he absolutely loved it! He did not want to get out of the pool at the end of the lesson and kept jumping back in ... he hasn't stopped talking about it and can't wait for the next one. Very highly recommended.
My children have been with Kingfishers for the last 4 years. First my eldest child and now, Isabella, my youngest, has been taking part in lessons since she was 2 years old and loves every minute. The instructors are wonderful with the children and make learning to swim fun. Would recommend to anyone looking for a good value for money swim school.
My 3 children Eddy, Tom and Kayleigh have all been attending Kingfisher Swim School for the last 2 years. I can't thank the teachers enough for their continued support. I will never forget our first swimming lesson when my youngest wouldn't stop crying (screaming!) and Denise took her in her arms and popped her on her hip and carried on her teaching her lesson. I sat on the side of the pool wondering if I had done the right thing seeing my baby so scared of the water but as the lesson continued her tears turned into smiles. I have witnessed this dedication and caring attitude from all the teachers. I would recommend Kingfisher Swim School to any parents who want a safe and fun environment for their children to learn to swim.
Kingfishers swim school is a very friendly swim school, all of the teachers are very patient and encouraging. I learnt to swim at kingfishers myself, taught by Denise's mum and subsequently Denise, I also assisted with the beginner classes so was confident my children would strive here. I wanted my children to be strong confident swimmers and kingfishers has given them the ability and confidence in the water.
Children receive stickers towards their badges which is a great visual to encourage young children.
Emily age 8 says "I love learning new things and seeing how much I improve"
Jake age 5 says "it is fun and helps you learn to swim"
A friend recommended Kingfishers Swim School to me 5 years ago and now both my daughters, Lauren and Freya, both enjoy the weekly lessons and the crash courses that the school offer. I like that Kingfishers is a small, friendly and well-run family business. You can contact the teachers directly, watch your children swim and see them make great progress. I am also impressed that my daughters have had opportunities to learn not only the skills to swim, but also pool-side safety and life saving. I thoroughly recommend it.
My two sons, Callum & Jamie have been swimming with Kingfishers for 1 year 2 months. Both children started as non-swimmers and my eldest took to it straight away, within a short period he went from 3 armbands to no armbands and can now swim over 10m on his own. My youngest completely didn't want to go swimming and we have had a few sessions where he has had complete "meltdowns" in the pool. Every time the teachers have dealt with it brilliantly - far better than I would have and although he isn't as far along as my eldest son he does love coming and will be doing an intensive course during the holidays to give him the confidence that he requires to move out of the armbands. He was also offered a one-to-one lesson after the first meltdown which helped him enormously even though he really didn't want to get in the pool. My children have had a few of the teachers now and love them all. Denise and the team do a great job and I'd recommend Kingfishers to anyone asking about lessons.
Thank you to you and your team who teach my son Freddy. Due to work commitments i can't always see him swim as he goes with his childminder but last Friday i popped along and got to see him swimming unaided in the deep end and managing to do a width. I was so impressed. He's come on leaps and bounds since starting at KFSS so thank you.
I am so impressed with this swim school. Anna`s teacher is brilliant and very patient and I have noticed that Anna has improved her strokes dramatically and has really enjoyed doing some life saving skills. We have had to buy her some fins after she loved using them the other week .....she said she felt like a mermaid ! Thank you so much.
My daughter Jessica has been going since January and loves swimming so much and improves every week. Ann and Denise are fab with the little ones x
My Son is on his first term at Kingfisher swim school, he really enjoys his lessons and loves coming, he especially likes getting his stickers at the end of each session.I would definitely recommend this swim school to other parents.
Elias loves coming to kingfishers, his only been with you a term and I can see a huge difference in his swimming ability and his confidence. I was surprised to see the number of swimming teachers that are in the pool with him when he swims, 3 teachers to 6 kids it's fantastic that all the kids get so much attention. I was recommend by 2 friends of mine to come to Denise at kingfishers and am so pleased I did choose you other the other swim schools I had looked into. The lady's at kingfishers are all so lovely. Your so reasonably priced. Very happy all round.
We love Kingfishers!! Owen loves coming, the teachers are all very friendly and have amazing patience especially with my excitable 4 year old, look forward to him swimming like a champ one day, no pressure kingfisher lol!
Very impressed. My son started and was using swimming aids. 1 term in and he's now swimming unaided in the deep end and learning stroke technique. What amazing progress. Thank you kfss!
Thomas and Katie have been swimming with kingfishers for a few years now and they really enjoy it and recently have both moved up levels in their swimming. The stickers and badges they reward encourage the children to improve their swimming skills and technique. I have noticed a big difference in their swimming lately, keep up the good work kingfishers :)
My 3 yr old Aarav loves swimming lessons. He has grown in confidence in the water and making good progress. The teachers are attentive to individual needs. Denise goes the extra mile. Thanks for being a great teacher.
I am currently writing this email and the lesson has not even finished yet but I just want to express how amazed I was today with Erin’s lesson. In 1 half hour lesson Erin and the others in her group were taught the breast stroke and her teacher did a wonderful job. I am so pleased and felt this should be mentioned what a brilliant job well done and thank you.
Our daughter joined Kingfishers as a beginner in September, and cried at the beginning of her first lesson, which Denise handled very well.
She now looks forward to going and smiles throughout her lesson, and although she has only been having lessons for half a term, she has already grown so much in confidence and ability.
She enjoys earning stickers and is looking forward to receiving her first badge!
Thank you to all our parents and children for their reviews. If you would like to review us, please get in touch!
