About Cindy’s Swim School

Based in South West London, Cindy's Swim School operates from our Balham, Earlsfield, Tooting, Streatham, Furzedown and Battersea pools.

Children's swimming lessons

Children's classes are kept small to give each child the attention they need. Lessons are structured around the key elements of swimming. Basic foundation skills are key elements in our lessons. Children are taken at their own pace so as to develop and strengthen core muscles and confidence in water before moving onto stroke technique.

We have found, in our experience, that keeping children motivated in fun, energetic lessons is helped by physical demonstration of movement to help them understand instructions, remember them and follow them. We also find they benefit from a firm no-nonsense approach to uphold safety and order in the pool.

Adult swimming lessons

Squad and adult training is based on the same basic foundation concepts, with breathing techniques being a big focus in the classes. Once proper breathing and body alignment is mastered, stroke technique is then taught to the latest standards. We also pay particular attention to near drowning experiences in children as well as adults.


All the teachers at CSS have the relevant necessary qualifications, training and experience in working with children and adults with learning difficulties, baby classes, as well as coaching more advanced swimmers, such as triathletes.
