  • positive review  my daughter has been swimming with star swimming academy for over 4 years. she swims with the amazing Julie starting with one to one lessons and now in a group. The progress my daughter has made in the pool is immense she has so much confidence and can swim a number of strokes independently. The whole team are fantastic when you look around d the pool all the children are full of smiles and you can see that everyone of them clearly enjoys their lessons. It will be a sad day in my house when my daughter no longer has swimming lessons.

  • positive review  Can I just Thank the whole team at Star Swimming Academy for all you do. I’m so glad you where recommended to us and we joined. I can’t thank Peter enough for what he does for Williams confidence and his swimming ability shocks us week on week all because Peter believes in him and brings out the best in him. He is just a fabulous teacher who brings out the best in all the Children. Julie is an absolute star too every time I’ve communicated with the academy she’s just been outstanding and always gives us the warmest welcome every single week. And Sean who teaches my younger son is just amazing with the Children but has created a bond with James who now trusts him so much to allow himself to relax and enjoy learning to swim. He’s a different child in the water to a couple of months ago and that’s all down to Sean. Thank you to everyone involved. You are truly amazing all of you 🥰 xxx

  • positive review  I would like to share my appreciation for Julie at Star Swim for her patience, understanding, care and humour. My daughters have really struggled going back to swimming after lockdown and the changes that they have experienced as a result made them highly anxious and getting them in the pool was a huge stress. Julie has been so accommodating and dealt with the girls to resolve their fears and stress and has used her magic to get them both in the pool and made them feel great after every lesson. It hasn’t been a one off occasion that Julie has had to help me, it’s most weeks and taking the girls swimming can be stressful but as soon as they are in the pool it’s worth it. Their swimming has improved and they are challenging themselves and improving each week, it makes me so proud. Thank you Julie for everything you really are a star ⭐️

We are so proud of the feedback we receive, as the comments empathises what we do on a daily basis, as Walt Disney once quoted:


Whatever you do, do it well. Do it so well that when people see you do it, they will want to come back and see you do it again, and they will want to bring others and show them how well you do what you do.
