The Sussex Swim School

THE SUSSEX SWIM SCHOOL was formed by Hilary Silverman in 2004 following many requests from parents to provide structured, individual swimming tuition for their children, in a clean, warm, fun, safe and secure environment.

Since those early days, The Sussex Swim School has gradually grown and we now provide swimming lessons to more than 500 pupils each week.

With only 6 children in each class, we certainly provide them with personal tuition. Each of our pupils is assessed every term. When they have achieved all of the criteria set out by the ASA, they are awarded with a certificate and badge and moved to the next level class, where appropriate.

Pupils are assessed on their individual aquatic ability and progress, and are placed in a class to match their ability as opposed to their age.

We believe we have found perfect venues: Beedinglee, in Lower Beeding.  Set within a beautiful, private, rural residence in the heart of West Sussex, the pool is 12 metres by 7 metres, is crystal clear, hygienic and clean, and heated to 31 degrees, the perfect temperature for young swimmers.

Our lessons at Beedinglee are held Monday to Friday 09.00 to 1pm for pre-school children and 3.45 to 6.45 for school children, and Saturdays between 08.00 and 2pm.  For a 6 week term the cost is £66.00.

Our lessons at Handcross Park School pool are held on Saturday afternoons between 12.30 and 4.30pm.  The pool is much larger at 17 metres by 8 metres and is the ideal location for beginners up to competition level.  We run three lessons simultaneously at Handcross Park. For a 12 week term the cost is £96.00.
