Branksome Bubbles  offers relaxing swimming lessons enjoyable both for parents, children and adult learners. I draw on my life time experience of a mother of three children, a swimming instructor, competitive swimmer and a surf lifeguard.   

Qualifications:  I hold a STA Level 2 Award in Aquatic Teaching - Baby and Pre-School and an ASA level II award in teaching swimming,  I also hold a  Surf LifeGuard Qualification and a current DBS.​

Why Branksome Bubbles? Most swim schools sign up to 12 children per class and it can be hard for a single swim teacher to work individually with each child&parent pair. Lessons with Branksome Bubbles have a maximum of three children. The pace and the content of each lesson is tailored to the needs and abilities of each child. All adult classes are one to one.

​​Location: The lessons take place in a beautiful private indoor pool within a short walking distance from Branksome Chine beach in Poole.  The pool depth is 110 cm. The water temperature is maintained at 29 degrees Celsius.  The pool has a comfortable entry with wide stairs.  The area is equipped with a shower, toilet, private changing room, a changing table, and a playpen.

Parking is in the private driveway, next to the pool entrance.​​​​​



About me: 

I have a life-long passion for swimming that I love to share with you and your child. I believe swimming is an essential life skill that not only keeps us safe in the water but is a wonderful way to keep fit both physically and mentally.

Swimming will help your child to improve coordination, strength, orientation and social skills. It will be the beginning of a lifelong fear-free positive relationship with the water environment that you will share together. Living near the beach, learning how to swim as early as possible is a wonderful start to endless happy days by the sea.

As a young teenager, I swam competitively. Later in my life I decided to share my enthusiasm for swimming and completed training as a Swimming Instructor  for children of all ages and adults. I regularly swim both in open water and in the pool. I have participated in various local open water swim races. 

I am a mother of three children and my own sometimes quite stressful experience of taking them as toddlers to swimming lessons inspired me to create a relaxed environment that would result in a positive experience both for your child and yourself.
