Swim Clinic

Swimming lessons in South Oxfordshire

Swim Clinic

We are a small swimming school based in South Oxfordshire, providing lessons for all ages from children (4 years and up) to adults.​

Swim Clinic aims to give young children and adults the confidence to enjoy the water.

Our qualified teachers provide structured lessons, encouraging children to gain their confidence and achieve their first few strokes.

We are a member of Swim England (formerly the ASA -Amateur Swimming Association) and follow their ‘Pathway to Swim’

As a child progresses they work towards benchmarked achievements. At each stage children are recognised with a certificate and badge.

Our Classes

We have a selection of classes and intensive courses.

Our classes are small – maximum 5 children at beginner stages and maximum 6 children for lane swimmers.

Our weekly classes run during school term times.

Intensive 5 day courses and Saturday swimming days are held during some school holidays.

We can discuss individual requirements to help you decide on the best option.

1:1 or 1:2 lessons are now availible with limited availability. Please contact us for further information.


Many adults didn’t have the benefit of regular swimming lessons as children.

Whether you are a non swimmer, an average swimmer wanting to improve or a triathlete looking for training, Swim Clinic can help you.

For adults we offer individual 1:1 lessons and group classes.

Adults are usually better suited to individual 1:1 instruction.

What Our Customers Say

Lucy, just to say you have been by far the best swimming teacher she has ever had! K**** is going to miss her lessons a lot. Thank you so much for taking care of her so well – hopefully we’ll be back soon.

I have been overwhelmed by how much they have improved and would like to thank Lucy.  The kids love swimming with Lucy and Jo!

My granddaughter has gone from being petrified of water to swimming confidently with no fear at all in a short time.  She now enjoys the water and it’s a pleasure to see!  Well done Swim Clinic.

After just 3 lessons I have a different child!  From a 3 year old who would cling on to you in the pool, and hate getting water on her face, to a super confident little girl who absolutely loves to be in the water, and getting her face wet.  Highly recommended!

These ladies are amazing!  My little one was terrified about the idea of swimming lessons!! Very nervous!  Claire had been amazing with him.  She has given him so much confidence that after the second lesson he wanted to swim every day!  He looks forward to it all week!  Couldn’t recommend enough!  I’ll certainly be booking another slot and some intensives when they become available.

My daughter is a very nervous little girl and was very apprehensive about swimming lessons, but by her 2nd lesson Jo had her jumping in herself and being a lot more water confident.  Can’t recommend this swim school highly enough.

Great intensive swimming courses held this holiday!  My daughter has come on so much in a short space of time!

Both my girls have lessons and they are both improving with each lesson.  The teachers are fab, always praising the children throughout the lesson.  I would highly recommend Swim Clinic.

My daughter absolutely loves her lessons!  So nice to sit and watch her in a relaxed and professional class.  Thanks all.

Amazing- highly recommend, brilliant teachers
