My daughter has been going for 5 years now. She is a confident swimmer who has just passed her 600m and Bronze certificate. My two grandsons age 3&4 also started 2 terms ago. They are now both enjoying the lessons and the water confidence that comes with it. I have recommended Splash to anyone and everyone who mentions swimming lessons and will continue to do so. Keep up the great work Patsy, teaching a life skill is so very important and you and your team are so very good at it. Xxx

I can't recommend Patsy and her amazing staff at Splash Academy highly enough. This is not just a job, it is their passion and this is conveyed to all their pupils. Both my boys have made incredible progress since being at Splash Academy and today I'm delighted to discover my eldest has passed his trial and is now swimming in the 'pre-squad' training group for St Ives Swimming Club. He wouldn't be here without the help and encouragement which Splash Academy has provided. Thank you Patsy and crew!

For anyone looking for swimming lessons for the little ones (or bigger ones) give this one a try, we have been going since my daughter was 10 weeks old and she loves it, the staff are delightful and have given her so much confidence in the water.

I have 3 children who have been or are still being taught at Splash. Child 1 - was an easy customer and signed up for swimming lessons with a smile on his face and finished lessons having learnt to swim a good distance with good technique. Child 2 - was not so easy! He did not love the water and would not go in the water unless he was glued to myself or his dad. We had no idea how Patsy and his swim teacher would get him in the pool and detached from somebody's arm, but somehow they did and he is now super confident, particularly underwater where he happily swims for ages without surfacing! Child 3 - could be heard from outside the pool the first day she started lessons and I was that very embarrassed mum in the changing room, wanting the earth to swallow me up! Fortunately, week 2 was a completely different experience and once again the experienced, attentive and caring team at Splash, led by the lovely Patsy Coleman, have worked their magic!

The best swim school in the area. Customer service second to none and fantastic teachers! Patsy also tutors the best teacher training courses and CPD sessions. Inspiring training that will make you love being a swimming teacher.

Being an ex swimmer I wanted my children to receive the highest quality swimming teaching, which they received at Splash Academy under the guidance of Patsy Coleman with her extensive knowledge and experience. They are both amazing swimmers with great technique. Along with the exceptional customer care I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Splash academy to anyone.

An amazing swim scheme with great personal attention to detail - my children loved it here.

I completed both my level 1 and 2 swimming teacher courses at splash academy along with numerous other CPD workshops which have all been delivered to an extremely high standard. I also worked for splash academy and it was amazing to be apart of a swim school led by such an inspirational leader, Patsy. Each child is given the opportunity to achieve the best they can and is cared for individually to ensure they progress. Would highly recommend Splash Academy!

I completed my level 1 and level 2 courses at splash academy and have completed many courses here as well. I was lucky enough to work for Patsy for a number of years. Splash Academy is such an amazing place and Patsy is an inspiration. I feel very privileged to have been trained by her and to have been able to work for her.

I thoroughly enjoyed the level 1 and 2 swimming courses and they have helped me to start my new career as a riding instructor - only joking - of course as a swimming teacher, thank you Patsy, and staff for helping me get my ducks in a row.

I recently attended a Disability Awareness course with the legend that is Patsy Coleman. Thank you Patsy for another fantastic course I learnt so much and you always inspire me which in turn helps me continue to help the pupils in my swim school.
