About Us

Jane Hayman qualified as a swimming teacher in 1997 and in addition to full time swimming teaching, set up and established her first swim school within a year. 

Jane is a qualified tutor for the Swimming Teachers Association, teaching others to become swimming teachers and recently qualified (2012) as a Trainer/Assessor for the RLSS, delivering Basic Life Support training to groups responsible for special needs pupils in the water

JH Swim School prides itself on offering small teaching groups (maximum of seven to one teacher) to enable each swimmer to receive more personal tuition. This helps accelerate the development of their swimming and water safety skills. Encouragement and positive feedback is constantly given to help pupils improve and work towards their individual goals. 

The team at JH Swim School consists of experienced Level 2 swimming teachers plus qualified Level 1 assistants in the water. We work closely together to provide a safe, efficient and high quality teaching environment. 

Jane regularly liaises with and receives feedback from the teachers in the team to ascertain progress of every pupil, not just her own. This enables Jane to put in place any booster lessons or additional support to overcome any skills or techniques which your child may find particularly challenging.

JH Swim School is affiliated to Swim England and we follow their national Learn To Swim programme. We adhere to the current Swim England Code of Ethics and Safeguarding Procedures and Policies.
