Childrens' Swimming School in Hampshire

School of Dolphins is a private swim school in Hampshire with small swimming classes, warm water and a free car park! 

We are members of Swim England, the national governing body for swimming, and our children learn how to swim and enjoy the water safely through the national Learn to Swim award scheme. All childrens' swimming lessons offered at the School of Dolphins are taught by teachers holding Swim England or equivalent qualifications.

Our lessons offer children the chance to work towards attaining badges and certificates to highlight their progress whilst building their confidence in the water for this life-saving skill.

“Swimming is a life saving skill that is never too early to start”


Baby and toddler swimming lessons

We recommend that babies start swimming with us after they have received all their immunisations. Our youngest Little Fin enrolled is four months old!

Baby classes have a maximum of five in the water with parents or carers. The lessons are based on fun with activities to build water confidence. Toys, songs and games are integrated into the lesson with a three weekly rotation of lesson plans to ensure no one gets bored!

Pre-school swimming lessons

All three year olds and upwards are in the water on their own with the swimming teacher wearing hats and goggles! These classes have four in a class and fun and activities are incorporated into the session plans so that children build confidence.

Here stroke work, breathing techniques and responsibility are the core of the classes with the aim that by the time they reach school age our Little Fins can swim alone in the water for a number of strokes.

Primary school swimming lessons

We have many different levels of classes within the timetable to accommodate the total beginner to more advanced length swimmers.

We classify children as beginners, intermediate, advanced or improvers all working within the Learn to Swim framework set out by Swim England.

Private swimming lessons

In some unique cases private 1-2-1 lessons are needed and we can accommodate this during weekends and school holidays.
