When new pupils are introduced to swimming lessons, they can feel anxious. At The Sussex Swim School one of our Swim England fully qualified swimming teachers is in the water with the children, from beginner to stage 4. This provides the children with confidence, security and safety. Children are open to learning when they are relaxed and having fun.
Our class sizes are small, with a maximum of 6 pupils in each class. This ensures your child receives the individual attention they require to put them at ease and assists with their aquatic progression.
We are a Swim England Swim School and follow the New Swim England National Teaching Plan for Swimming (NPTS). Our pupils are assessed every term and placed in classes to match their individual aquatic ability.
The National Plan for Teaching Swimming (NPTS) is an all inclusive programme which takes the non-swimmer from his or her first splash in the pool to developing confidence and competence in the water. Following the NPTS will result in the development of a wide range of skills. These skills will result in a competent, confident, strong and safe swimmer.
