Our family have had lessons from Johnson's Swimming School for over twenty years. I went and was taught by Jed, who has now been teaching there for 40 years, my sister was taught by both Jed and Ben (Jed's son, who has been there for at least 15 years) and now my three year old son is taught by Ben. The classes are superb. Children are encouraged from the very start to swim without arm bands and build up their strength in the water. They use aids such as floats to assist their swimming, building up key movements and taking things at a steady but tailored pace. My son currently attends with his nursery and lessons cost £36 per payment block (approximately 6 weeks). I particularly love that Johnson's encourage children's confidence in the water with extended supervised play time as well as structured lessons. Superb. I really do recommend and wouldn't send my children anywhere else.
