Home Education Swimming Lessons - Bitterne

Swim Spirits is proud to offer an exclusive programme for Home Education children aged 5-11 years old in Southampton. In association with Baby Swim UK.

We understand how important it is to give children wonderful educational learning experiences and we are proud to continue this in the pool providing an enriching, focused and stimulating atmosphere ideal for learning.

We believe being able to swim is life changing, leading to a love of water and opening opportunities for fun and adventure in life!

Your child can join our 5-7 week programmes as many times as required to achieve the Swimming Teachers Association (STA) School Swimming Academy Award 5.

Our courses are expertly designed to take your child from a Non-swimmmer to an Improver Swimmer achieving STA School Swimming Academy Award 5.

This is the desired level the UK's Government Department of Education would like all 11 year old's to be achieving.
