1-2-1 lessons are a tried and tested method of delivering an effective swimming programme and have proven to be very popular. This bespoke method of teaching with our skilled instructors is perfect for babies and toddlers, children with low water confidence and children who require extra support. Parents are not required to enter the pool unless by invitation of the instructor.
All non-swimmers start their swimming journey with us having 1-2-1 lessons. These short structured lessons develop at the pace of each individual and promote a positive relationship with their teacher.
This start enables a smooth transition into group lessons when the instructor feels the individual is ready.
Our instructors focus on swim-float-swim techniques enabling children to learn essential water skills without the need for flotation devices.
We welcome all new parents and children to visit us and see our lessons in action!
My son Robert has been swimming with Jo since he was 3. He started off very nervous in the water but Jo’s patience and perseverance gave him huge amounts of confidence. He is now swimming in a small group with Jo's lovely teacher, Caroline and coming on leaps and bounds. I recommend Jo Borthwick Swimming to everyone - great teachers, small groups and real progress.
If you are not sure if 1-2-1 classes would be right for your child, please watch the video to see how these work.
Alternatively, please request a free assessment and one of our instructors will be happy to advise on the best option.
