About TTP Swim School

Thank you for your interest in swimming lessons.

We wish for students and parents to have positive experiences during their time with us, and to remember their experience long after they have moved on to join swimming clubs or participate in other aquatic disciplines

Learning to swim is a vital skill that will last a lifetime.

We aim to develop our pupils to feel and to be safe in and around water. Our hope is that they leave us as proficient swimmers, who also have the skills and confidence required to enjoy other water based activities such as lifesaving, water polo, synchronized swimming, diving, kayaking , canoeing or simply just enjoying the water with family and/or friends.

TTP Swim School Ltd teachers are fully qualified and have experience of teaching different age groups and levels. 

Many of our teachers also have experience of working with swimmers with additional needs as part of small groups, or in private lesson sessions.

Our teachers have all undergone DBS checks.

We offer low pupil/teacher ratios for group lessons also offer private lesson options for both adults and children.

Our Classes


We start our programme for swimmers aged 4+ at Waverley School and for swimmers aged  5+ at St Ignatius College.  Our group classes have a maximum of 5 students per teacher. 

Cygnet Classes (WAVERLEY SCHOOL ONLY).  The lessons take place in a designated toddler area of the pool with a maximum of 5 students per teacher.  Not only is this a safe way to learn, it has proven to be very helpful to the younger swimmers in promoting the idea of being in a class environment and following instructions, as well as attaining the correct body position required for swimming and building confidence and developing water awareness.

Group lessons for children aged 5+ are available at both Waverley School & St Ignatius College, from beginner level through to advanced swimmers.

These classes have a maximum of just 5 pupils per teacher for lower level classes and a maximum 6 pupils per teacher for higher level swimmers.  

Starter level group classes usually swim within their depth (where they can stand up) for safety reasons, but may be taken into deep water to practice jumping in or treading water. 

Arm bands are not used during our lessons but other buoyance aids are provided and used by TTP Swim School Ltd.


We offer a range of group lessons for adult swimmers starting from complete beginners through to more experienced swimmers looking to improve their strokes and technique.

Adult classes are friendly and informal with a maximum of 6 adults per teacher. This small pupil teacher ratio ensures that all swimmers receive attention during the lesson. Adult swimmers are also given the opportunity to practice independently and are supported with any particular challenges or concerns they have with their stroke. Our adult lessons are informal and fun with lots of laughter and positive energy.


Private lessons generally take place at the same time and with the same teacher every week and must be book for the duration of the whole term (typically  term consists of 11 or 12 session).

An area of the pool is allocated to the  private lesson depending on the height, age and ability of the swimmer.  There will be other lessons taking place before, at the same time and after private lesson slots.

Private lesson bookings offer a 1:1 and 1:2 or 1:3 option which are suitable for both adults and children. Private lessons  offer a full 30 minutes of individual contact time for the swimmer (s) and are suitable for nervous swimmers, those with additional needs, swimmers who want to learn/focus on specific strokes or just for those who simply want or prefer a lesson personalised to suit their needs.

Additional Needs

We provide lessons for swimmers with additional needs.

At the point of enquiry, we discuss the needs of the swimmer with the enquirer and together explore the options for the swimmer to join main group classes or of having a private lesson.

We take into account the physical and cognitive ability of the swimmer and their ability to follow instruction before deciding whether  private or group lessons will be safe and beneficial.
