Unlike most swim schools, we don’t work in full term blocks mixing between strokes and skills throughout the term. We have our own programme which runs in half-termly ‘sprints’ – focussing on specific and related skills for the whole term. We provide continuous feedback during lessons, reducing the likelihood of developing ‘poor skills’. Our swimmers will be water confident and technically correct.

If you’re looking to move into competitive swimming, we’re a preferred feeder school into the local swimming club, Caradon.

Group Lessons

Swim4 lessons have a maximum of four pupils per class and we take children from 3 years upwards for group lessons.


In January 2016 we launched our Swim4 Awards – designed to draw on the best practice of the governing bodies, adjusted to suit our way of teaching

Swim4 offers swimming lessons to adults and children aged three years upwards.

You can find and follow us on Facebook and Twitter, or get in touch with one of the team below.

We now offer ADULT swimming lessons, please contact Tamsyn for more information and availability.
