Learn to Swim at Faversham Pools
Learning to swim unlocks an important life skill which is fun, healthy and confidence-boosting.
Faversham Swim School offers high-quality tuition for learners of all ages, whatever their ability. Our friendly, fully-qualified instructors make learning fun. We offer small group lessons as standard – a maximum of 6 in each lesson – giving your child more attention to help them progress.
We offer kids’ lessons from 12 weeks up to the teenage years, along with intensive holiday courses and diving lessons. We also offer individual and group adult swimming lessons for those learning for the first time, or to improve technique.
All our teachers are fully-qualified, DBS checked – and most importantly, dedicated to helping your child learn to swim.
Our lessons follow the world-leading Swim England ‘Learn to Swim’ programme, and badges and certificates are awarded upon completion of each stage.

For babies aged up to 2, Splash Babies uses songs, games, floats and toys to improve water confidence and brain development. Children aged 2-4 will move on to our fun Toddler Splash sessions, ready to start at Faversham Swim School aged 4. More info + to book.

'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'.
