Swim School

Jellyfish swim school has been operating since 2004 and has developed a system of teaching which has consistently achieved great results for children all over Surrey and Sussex.  We cover Copthorne, Burstow, Crawley, Horley, Smallfield, East Grinstead, Turners Hill, Crawley Down, Lingfield, Hookwood, Forest Row, Forge Wood, Charlwood, New Chapel, Felbridge, Ashurst Wood and surrounding areas.

Our guaranteed small classes, often half the numbers of other swim schools and our positive friendly approach creates the environment where children can learn quickly and safely.

We pride ourselves experts in teaching novice swimmers from age 3 years and ensure that the basics are taught correctly as this gives the grounding for attaining the best possible technique for swimmers to realise their full potential.

We follow The National Plan For Teaching Swimming (NPTS) which is a multi aquatic programme that is provided by Swim England, starting from the non-swimmer up to competitive level.
