Learn To Swim

Learn to Swim with our Teaching Houses

ESS believes in the importance of superior quality swimming instruction for learners aged 4+ by experienced teachers. Our teaching houses, Phoenix and Griffins, have successfully run outstanding learn-to-swim programmes for many years and offer a full range of swimming lessons for all ages and abilities.
Most of our high achieving ESS squad swimmers have learned to swim with either of the two houses before progressing through the ranks of our competitive squads.
