The way they see us...

Passionate, supportive, dedicated…These are some of the nice words we hear from our parents to describe our teachers. They are always available to guide you and your children, in and out of the water, to ensure that your child has the best possible experience as they embark on their swimming journey. We have taught babies as young as 3 months old to float, and children from 3.5 years old to swim 25 metres! Impressive! Come and meet them in the pool!

Why are we so unique?

Natural Affinity

Our Instructors are selected due to their natural affinity with children and their passion and belief in our programme. Part of the ISA Water Safety programme training develops the Instructor’s ability to read your child’s emotions and tailor each lesson according to how your child is feeling that day.

Instructors teach from within the pool, allowing them to keep your child safe, adjust alignment and give immediate feedback, reward, praise and encouragement.


All ISA instructors are required to hold the latest recognised ASA (Amateur Swimming Association) or STA (Swimming Teachers’ Association) qualifications, a valid life-saving certificate that we update every two years and undergo enhanced DBS checks. The Water Safety instructors have also completed an intensive ISA Qualified Instructor Training course and on-going In-House Training

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
