ISA Crash Course

Crash Course img

Our Crash Courses are a popular option for our regular swimmers, occasional swimmers and new swimmers alike. They are usually 4 or 5 days long and are run outside of our normal term times during the school holidays. For example, they may run during the Half Term, Easter Holidays or upon request.

What your child will learn


Your child will make faster progress compared to weekly lessons.


Your child will build confidence quickly  through constant repetition.


Your child will improve specific skills they have been struggling with.

How does the Crash Course work?

ISA Crash Courses are offered as an intensive course where swimmers attend at least 1 lesson per day for the duration of the course (although we do offer the option to book a “One-off” lesson at these times where there is availability).

A lesson every day for a week sees more accelerated progress than the same amount of lessons once per week throughout the term.

"Step-up your swimming skills in an intensive course"

We often see accelerated progress during these short courses due to the frequent repetition throughout the week. Children learn very effectively in short, frequent intervals. Crash Courses present a great opportunity to focus on anything your child may need to overcome in their regular lessons, such a specific skill that is taking them a little longer to learn or building confidence more quickly.

If your child is new to lessons, a Crash Course can be a great way to introduce them to the ISA programme and set them off on their swimming adventure with a flying start!

Silvia & Miguel,

Words cannot express my gratitude to the both of you for the excellent work you have done for Noah.
He changed from a boy who hated water on his face and eyes to one who can swim powerfully across the pool, with different techniques in his repertoire and with confidence too.

Thank you so much for your patience and firmness.

Rose and son Noah



This programme is a very valuable service to have, especially for children of special needs that can not take part in mainstream swimming classes. The level of immersion works really well in combination with the care and sensitivity they have for all the children. This method of teaching shows that anyone can learn to swim, no matter what age or ability!


Tracey and son Isaiah


We are absolutely thrilled with JJ's progress with ISA!

JJ had done a lot of the programme while in Australia but we couldn't find a good swimming school in the UK. So it had been 2 years since his last lesson when he started with ISA. He was very scared of water at the beginning and he used to cling to his instructor... Seeing him, after just one term, floating, swimming and looking forwards to coming to swimming lessons is remarkable! Thank you!

Danielle and son Jeffrey


To the ISA team,

William and Finn were camping with their dad in Cornwall last weekend. Chris just texted to say that William was climbing on some rocks by the water, slipped and accidentally, he fell into the water. Immediately rolled onto his back, starfish! then, onto his front and kicked to the shore. He is ok.


What would we do without ISA?

Caroline and son William


We have been with ISA over a year now and cannot praise the teachers enough! 

Our 2 boys have had lessons with all four different teachers who have all been equally caring and firm when required. The technique itself is also very unique with the emphasis on floating early on which gives parents the peace of mind around pools on holidays. The boys now love coming back for lessons and are very comfortable in the water.


Anis and sons Selim & Sami


We are very happy!

It is always easy to speak to the team with questions, concerns or suggestions and we always get a quick and suitable response...! I was very impressed watching the instructor in-house training to understand more details about your approach.



Linda and daughter Sofia


I would like to book!
