Swim School

Sylvestrian Swim School, is located within Forest School, providing swimming lessons to Walthamstow, Leyton, Leytonstone, Wantstead, Woodford, Chingford and Loughton. Sylvestrian Swim School provides fantastic swimming lessons for children aged 3 years and over, 7 days a week for non-swimmers, beginners and improvers through to advanced swimmers. Our swim school offers lessons Monday to Friday from 5pm and at weekends from 8.30am. Each term is 13-14 weeks, with classes running for 30 minutes in duration, with the exception of our advanced classes and Rookie lifeguard courses which run for 60 minutes. Our lessons are both fun and educational with our instructors engaging each child, to get the best from them and encouraging them to enjoy learning to swim safely. All of our swimming instructors are qualified swimming teachers through either the ASA or STA and we strive to employ swimming teachers who are not only committed to motivating swimmers but that are also passionate about teaching swimming. We follow the STA International Learn to Swim Programme. Each level has 10 learning outcomes to achieve, offering colourful swimming badges and certificates for each completed level. In addition, we also offer badges and certificates for distances achieved. Assessments & Rebooking Swimmers are assessed on week 6 or week 7 of each course and a rebooking form is emailed to parents, detailing which class their child needs to be booked in for the following term. There is a two week priority re-booking period for existing swim school customers to rebook for the following term. We then allow customers on our waiting list to book any remaining spaces. We encourage all parents to rebook on-line as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.
