Kind words from our customers across all our Swimming Schools

The Watersplash team have taken my water adverse (& I mean hating bath time, showers, swimming, the lot) child from fear to fun within a term. Face in water, jumping in the deep end, everything and now he is a competent swimmer all thanks to Stuart. So glad we swapped swim schools!

They have also given my water loving child beautiful technique and encouragement and she now swims for a local club.

But the thing I love most about Lauren and her team is their attitude, everything is fun, everything is possible, they support the stressed mum trying to get the kid in the water as much as the child itself, the admin side is easy. It has a community feel and the work she is doing to keep the Marlborough Pool open as a community asset is to be applauded and supported.

I have no hesitation in recommending the Watersplash team.

Just wanted to drop you a quick note to say a very big thank you to you and the girls for all you have done with Abbie.
3 weeks in and she has gone from being scared of the water and crying her eyes out before every lesson to being excited and looking forward her lessons – it really is an amazing transformation!
I can see her confidence has improved drastically already which really was half the battle with her.

Nicky and Abbie

Both my children have had lessons with Watersplash,  so I have known Lauren and her team over the past 7 years. I whole-heartedly recommend them as very capable teachers of swimming techniques in a warm and positive atmosphere. The kids are all having fun while they learn. Thumbs up!

I’d just like to say that Meredith has come on leaps and bounds with her swimming.
Watersplash is professionally run and has excellent trainers.
I was very grateful when you were able to change Meredith’s swimming day to accommodate her other out of school activities.

Lauren’s Water Splash swim school is extremely well organised and equipped. The enthusiastic and passionate teachers make it stand out. Both of our sons attend classes, it is a thrill to watch them enjoying learning how to swim. Our youngest son struggled to settle, but with Lauren’s experience and his brilliant teacher’s patience, he has grown in confidence enormously. I cannot rate this swim school highly enough, I have recommended it to several friends who are also delighted with it.

My daughters have loved learning to swim with Watersplash. Both started lessons when they were four years old, and right from the start the enthusiasm of Lauren, Julie and the team was infectious. My girls quickly became confident and happy in the water. Today, my ten year old is an excellent swimmer and a member of our local swimming club, whilst my seven year old is making brilliant progress and swimming lengths using a variety of strokes. Swimming is one of their favourite pastimes. I cannot recommend Watersplash highly enough.

My three children love their swimming lessons. They have great fun which has made them really confident in the water. I’ve been amazed at how quickly they have learnt to swim. Would recommend these lessons to everyone.

Kerrie Hill with Jessica 6, Emily 4 and Ethan 2

All four of our kids, (aged 11, 8, 5 & 3) have been through Lauren’s swimming school. By the age of 4 they have all been confident enough to swim in the sea off the coast of Cornwall on family holidays. Our eldest is now swimming galas for one of the top swim clubs in Hertfordshire and this was a child who would cry getting into a bath when she was little. The second is about to try out for the same club and we have no doubt the two younger ones will follow suit.

The ability of Lauren and her fellow coaches to make even the most nervous of children confident and just as, if not more importantly, happy in the water is astounding. We cannot recommend Watersplash Swim School enough.

Patrick & Jackie Johnston, St. Albans

We are over the moon with the Watersplash Swim School. Our son has some learning difficulties and he has come on brilliantly with Lauren and her team. He had other swimming lessons previously, but was always in a very large group and not given the time he needed to progress. Since he has been with Lauren, he no longer needs his arm bands and can now swim on his own! Everyone who has taught him has been caring, attentive and patient, with loud, clear instructions which is what he needs!

Mandy and Karl Hutson with Adam

I have three boys who all go to Watersplash and I can only be eternally grateful to Lauren, Julie and the whole team who have taught my sons this essential life skill. They have paid very individual attention to each one of them to pinpoint areas that need improvement. To our delight, our eldest son recently swam 800 metres and this would not have been possible without Lauren’s excellent supervision and much needed motivation.

I would recommend anyone with young children that they need to look no further than Watersplash for a very professional, yet friendly, swim school who will look after your child’s every need when it comes to swim instruction.

Aarif and Khairun Merali with Abbas, Kumail and Suhail

Best swimming coaches of the year, Julie, Lauren and Matt. Thankyou for teaching me to swim, I have learnt so much and progressed. Now I am going to try out for the swimming club. Thank you once again.
