A massive thank you to the team for all their work with the boys this year, they’ve done a fab job especially as getting my youngest to put his face in the water has been a bit of a battle 🙂


Both my girls (Katherine/Isobel) attend swimming lessons on Sunday ay Marlborough. Katehrine – she loves her main instructor’s enthusiasm and he makes the lessons fun. I can see her improving all the time.

Yesterday, Jess was ‘on-fire’, she was great with all the little girls. My youngest Isobel ‘swam’ for the first time, underwater. Jess was great throughout the whole session, bright, happy, and made it fun for all off them. She understands that Isobel is happy under the water and lets her get on with it.


I also want to say how wonderful all of your swimming teachers and assistants are. Just watching them every Sunday their expertise, knowledge and professionalism with the children is wonderful to watch- and I’m so glad we found such a great swimming school for Daisy to learn with.

I just wanted to drop you a quick email to say the boys has such a great first lesson today. Thanks for letting us both watch it was lovely to see them so relaxed and having a great time! Considering they haven’t bee in a swimming pool other than holidays ( and that’s nearly two years ago) they were really happy and seemed pretty confident. They are already asking when it’s time to come back. A lovely first experience for us all

Just wanted to say thank you for a brilliant first term at Watersplash! Our kids have loved it and your teachers have made it so much fun!

Sara, Amelie, Arthur and Evan

I am a primary school teacher and have sat through many swimming lessons over the years that have been far from adequate in the care, knowledge and skills shown by the instructors. I have been so impressed with your team – all the staff are so friendly, I feel like the instructors know what my child is capable of and how to help him progress, they have a wealth of ideas to encourage all and the whole experience has been great. So a massive thank you to your team.

I just wanted to say a big thank you for this week, I am so proud of what your team has achieved with Buddy – he has really come on.

Daisy and Buddy

Let me first start by saying the crash courses have been absolutely brilliant! Your team of teachers are just so amazing with the children and Finley has made such amazing progress during the last two weeks! So thank you! A special shout out to Harry!

Camilla and Finley

Jess is the most fantastic teacher, I am very impressed with how she has helped Poppy feel more confident in the water. Amazing to think what she is achieving from when she started.


I have been so impressed by your swim school-in fact I have already recommended you to my neighbour! You are very organised which is always reassuring, and my boys have already made huge progress in just three lessons! In fact they made lots of progress just on day one!

Natalie, Leonardo and Orlando

We were so impressed with Watersplash! Ella and Robbie loved it and both improved so much in the week. Their teachers were brilliant! We’ll def be looking out for other crash courses that you do 😊

Emma, Ella and Robbie

I just wanted to say a well done to you and your team of swimming teachers! Indie and Sienna get so excited and really enjoy their lessons and the teachers have such enthusiasm and make it fun for them! They always look forward to coming.

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.

Sue, Ryan and Vanessa

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!

Laura, St Albans

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.

Trudi and Meredith

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.

Suzy, Flynnt and Bramley

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.

Katie Fitch

My daughter, 7 and son, 5 have been at Watersplash for nearly 2 years. I had become frustrated with the lack of actual swimming my children were doing in the large group lessons at our local leisure centre.

We were recommended Watersplash and have never looked back. Group sizes are kept small and often have 2 teachers! They both came on incredibly.
They currently have private lessons with Stuart, as my daughter is hypermobile and struggles with co-ordination. We found tailor-made lessons for her work much better. Lauren has been so accommodating with this and I honestly can’t rave enough about what an incredible teacher Stuart is. He makes their lessons a perfect mix of learning and fun.

Rachel Blomfield

Watersplash is an absolutely fabulous swim school and I highly recommend Lauren & her team. My boys have progressed so much with their confidence & enjoyment of swimming. Family holidays are so much more fun now too! Thanks to everyone at Watersplash.

Watersplash Swim School is proud of its reputation for offering the highest standards of swimming teaching amongst all the swimming schools in North London and Hertfordshire. We value feedback from parents on the teaching their children receive at Watersplash. One of our parents said:

My children have all learnt to swim with Watersplash. They are all confident in the water and when we go on holiday I know they are safe and having fun. If you are looking for a swimming school for your children, look no further than Watersplash.
