Meet the swimming instructors


Jo Borthwick swimming teacher

Jo has always been passionate about the water,  ever since her grandfather taught her to swim and dive at a very early age.  Her water career began 17 years ago in warmer climates, where she taught scuba diving in Belize and the Caribbean whilst crewing yachts with her husband.


Returning to the UK and to landlocked Wiltshire she took up teaching swimming.  Whatever the age, old or young, enabling someone to become water confident is her passion. Jo is an ASA level 1 and 2 Swimming teacher and is also trained in Pediaswim Infant Survival.  She enjoys taking part in regular swimming challenges – the latest being the Bantham 6km Swoosh and the River Dart 10km swim.


Hayley, swimming tutor

Hayley has been in and out the water all her life, training with a swimming club in her teens, scuba diving and kayaking throughout her travels, assisting with school swimming lessons.  She has been a qualified level 2 ASA instructor for a number of years.


She trained in Florida as a Pediaswim instructor.  Hayley is passionate about bringing swimming to her community and teaching the next generation to be safe, confident and skilled swimmers.


Swimming has been a huge part of Caroline’s family life ever since she was a young child.  She swam with a local swimming club from an early age, competing through her school years, excelling in the style competitions. Whilst she still swims for enjoyment, it was watching her two girls swim under Jo’s excellent tuition and with Jo’s encouragement which led her to complete her  Level 1 ASA Swimming  Assistant Qualification.


After a short spell assisting Jo in the pool, she has since gone on to complete her ASA Level 2 Teaching Qualification.  Caroline is  really enjoying watching her swimmers grow in confidence  and skill and simply loves teaching.
