PalmerSwim comes highly recommended by Essex Mums in the best swim school category 2017. It was born from a passion of teaching children to swim in a small group environment in order to maximise their potential.

Our swim lessons have that added value that you won’t find anywhere else.  The groups are kept small , making them safer and more engaging.  At PalmerSwim your child won’t get lost in the crowd and will gain that often needed 1-2-1 attention that is just lacking in a large group atmosphere.

Our goal is to maximise your child time in the water having them working on skills the entire lesson rather than spending time “waiting for their turn”. From the very first class we make them feel safe and confident by having our teachers conducting the lesson from inside the water.  Having small groups means we can work at everyone’s pace with no one feeling left out or behind.

Children in our classes are happier and much more motivated to try new things and their technique will be outstanding in comparison to their peers.

There definitely is nothing more exciting to a child than knowing how to swim, so enroll them into lessons today so we can teach them this valuable skill. No other sport out there will develop your child in the way swimming does. They will be healthier because they swim and be able to enjoy this skill all their lives.

Our lessons are for complete beginners right up to children achieving their distance badges.  We run crash courses out of term time as well holiday safety lessons.

We are passionate about making the learning experience fun and exciting, creating a love of water from the very first lesson.  Over the weeks you will see your child transformed before your very eyes into a confident and competent swimmer.
