Our classes

At Pool Stars we keep our classes small ensuring each child gets the time and attention they need. All of our lessons are packed with fun activities to keep our swimmers engaged, we want all Pool Stars to have fun whilst they are learning to swim! Our parent and baby instructors understand that it can be daunting handling your baby in the water, this is why these classes focus on building the confidence of parents at the same time. All classes are billed monthly and are term time only for 42 week of the year. We are open on bank holidays and during half terms. We offer both group and 1:1/private classes. All new swimmers in group sessions receive a free taster session!


The littles ones! This class is for children from birth up till 18 months (Star 1 = birth – 9 months; Star 2 = 9-18 months). Starlets is a parent and baby class that focuses on building water confidence and having fun!

For children aged between 18 and 36 months, Comets is still a parent and baby class but the focus starts to shift to building the core swimming skills whilst still having lots and lots of fun!

Our Shooting stars are independent and enter the water without a parent. For children aged between 2.5 and 4 they focus on having fun whilst moving around the water on their front and back.

Our Explorers are confident and independent. They can move around the water on their front and back without support. Typically for children aged 4+, our Explorers have fun whilst further developing the 4 core swimming strokes! 

A few things we’re great at

At Swim Stars we pride ourselves on a lot of things but our mission is simple, for all of our Pool Stars to swim confidently and safely. This is achieved by delivering consistently high-quality swim lessons that are relational, inclusive and engaging.

Relationships

Inclusion

Engaging

Relationships are at the centre of everything that we do. We unlock the potential of all Pool Stars by getting to know each swimmer as an individual. All of our swim teachers develop positive and trusting relationships with our swimmers and parents. All swimming lessons have a maximum swimmer to teacher ratio of 3:1.

At Pool Stars we are passionate about inclusion. Our experience has shown us that all Pool Stars progress quicker when teachers understand how each swimmer learns best. We create the conditions needed for all of our swimmers to thrive. Our experience in PE teaching and swim teaching has shown us the importance of tailoring our teaching to each individual.

A Pool Stars swimming lesson is a fun and engaging experience. Our highly trained teachers adopt an innovative approach to swim teaching. We understand the importance of praise and positive reinforcement to consolidate learning and to build self-confidence. We have developed our very own Reward scheme called Reach for the Stars which recognises and celebrates the achievements of all of our Pool Stars!

Our pool

Our privately owned indoor pool is perfect for your child’s lessons

We have exclusive access to the pool meaning everything can be kept within touching distance and no distractions from other lessons or swimmers. Being privately owned with small classes means we can keep learning fun and engaging and can deliver all our lessons in a very comfortable 32c heated pool.

Meet Our Team

Pool Stars has been set up by husband and wife George and Laura Jenkins. Laura and George bring over 15 years of swimming teaching and sports coaching experience to Pool Stars. They also have a combined total of 20+ years of experience as Physical Education teachers.

Laura and George established Pool Stars because they were despondent with their experience of swimming lessons, both as teachers and as parents. They were frustrated by the cold water, the large groups, the impersonal approach and the lack of feedback given to swimmers and parents alike. They believed passionately that things could be so much better!

They set out to create a swim school that is centred on the needs of the swimmer and the parent.
