My year 4 class had 6 lessons with hyrdoschool as part of the curriculum.

The sttaff were welcoming, warm and friendly, immediately putting the children at ease. The staff were extremely patient and all children were happy in the pool by the end of the first lesson!

Whilst there was good humour throughout, all staff were very professional.

The lessons were clearly structured and it was evident that each lesson built upon the previous one. Even the non-confident swimmers made progress with each lesson. The joy in the faces of those who were reluctant at first was a delight. Every success, no matter how small was celebrated. Staff used lots of praise well to motivate and encourage children. Hydroschool is one of the best swimming lessons I have come across in 26 years of teaching! Such was the enthusiasm and joy of the staff which was conveyed to the children All the children were buzzing with excitement and did not want to miss out.

Thank you to all at hydroschool for giving my class a wonderful and memorable experience.

Sessions were incredibly well organised and fun and children thoroughly enjoyed them. All three teachers were approachable and developed a great rapport with the children. Children of all abilities made good progress and improved their skills over the eight weeks.

The process of booking swimming lessons after Covid was made so much smoother by dealing with Adrian at Hydroschool. Emails have been answered quickly, session times agreed and some kind of normality restored for our children. The sessions at Eastbourne College have been professionally run by qualified staff and the children are thoroughly enjoying them. We are looking forward to a continued swimming relationship with Hydroschool into the next academic year.

We have been delighted with the high quality teaching the hydroschool have provided. They have identified the needs of the children and accommodated each one to ensure the children; feel safe, learn to swim and have fun! Fantastic organisation, all staff so kind and friendly!
