We are experts

and we love what we do!
Our instructors love swimming, and come from a range of different backgrounds. They are all fully-qualified, excellent at what they do, and receive constant training to ensure they deliver the very best service to you.

Small class sizes

and we teach in the water
When we say "small", we are talking no more than six in each class*. And, for our earlier stage classes, our instructors teach in the water right beside the children. This allows us to offer exceptional support and learning opportunities.

We use the very best learn to swim venues in the north-east, including two that we designed and built ourselves! We make sure our venues are great - awesome even - for our swimmers, and for their families also.

we are 15 years strong
2006... that's when we delivered our very first swimming lesson as SwimNE. We've grown (and grown and grown) from there, and we are now the largest independent swim school in the region.
