High-quality tuition from trained instructors

Learning to swim unlocks an important life skill which is fun, healthy and confidence-boosting.

From toddlers to 100-year olds, our lessons equip you with the skills you need to really progress in the pool. Lessons are supportive and relaxed, and at a time that suits you.

We offer individual and group lessons, diving lessons, school holiday crash courses along with fun toddler sessions for the very youngest swimmers. 

We know that many customers who formerly had group lessons with Dolphin Swim School are keen for an update.

The new Faversham Swim School will now provide all lessons at Faversham Pools. Lessons will all be in small groups with no more than 6 pupils per group. Students will still learn the ASA levels 1-7 and lessons will run during term time. Our group lessons cost £9 per lesson per pupil, payable via direct debit or up-front with us at the reception desk at the start of each term. 

Since the departure of Dolphin Swim School this summer, we’ve been working hard to transfer their database of existing customers and waiting list members, to allow a continuation of as many lessons as possible – as fairly as possible. This week, the transfer of customer data begins.

We will be continuing to use Swimsoft, and this means the app you have is still valid as Faversham Swim School will be enrolling our current lessons onto it. Please be assured that the information will contain pupils’ levels and your contact details.

This also means the waiting list will transfer, in date order, and be merged in turn with the Faversham Pools waiting list to ensure it’s fair for all.

The team at Faversham Swim School has been working hard recruiting new instructors and creating space by moving previous 1-2-1 customers to group lessons. Throughout October, we will be assigning lessons and offering time slots that we feel are at a suitable level for the pupil. 

We’re aiming to commence group lessons to previous Dolphin customers from Monday 1st November.  In this changeover period we will attempt to answer as many questions as possible but will not be able to reply to individual requests at this stage. If you have any specific questions please email lesson.coordinator@favershampools.com.

We’re all working very hard to get this set up for you – thank you for your patience, and we look forward to welcoming you to Faversham Swim School very soon.

'Very, very impressed by the crash courses! My 4 year old who wouldn't go near water last year now swims comfortably with floats and my 6 year old who couldn't swim at all and didn't like the water in his face can now swim doggy paddle and float on his back! They're eager to do the next session now! Professional group sessions and 1-1 attention too'.
