I would have no hesitation in recommending Aqua Splash Swim School to other parents in the Whitehaven area, Our daughter Hayley's swimming has progressed significantly since joining Aqua Splash, the groups are small so she receives excellent tuition and direction from the Tutor who is very approachable and always happy to discuss Hayley's progress

My two boys are both autistic. Since attending Aquasplash on a 2:1 lesson basis, their confidence has soared and they are both now happy to swim under instruction from the school tutor. I would thoroughly recommend Aquasplash to any parent of a child with special needs. My children have been given outstanding help and the tutor has shown great patience and kindness and understanding to them both, and this shows in their constantly developing swimming skills

Eve has been attending swimming lessons with Gavin since she was a toddler commencing with the duckling stage's, eve is now 6 years old. She always looks forward to her lessons with Gavin. Gavin is very clear with his teaching methods and ensures he has the full attention of his class. I would recommend Aqua Splash to any parent/guardian

My son has used Aqua Splash for the last 3 years for private hydrotherapy hire. Hydro is his favourite activity and he really enjoyed his sessions. The pool and changing rooms are very well equipped to deal with disabled people

I would defiantly recommend Aquasplash swim school, my 19 month old daughter started parent and child sessions in September this year and the progress she has made in the few months is amazing her confidence has soared and Gavin makes the sessions fun, she loves it, looking forward to her starting lessons when she is old enough!

Since joining our sessions at Egremont swimming pool Gavin has supported us to successfully implement new strategies and intergrate skills from awards and help our children grow in confidence,progress & develop in their own abilities. We have been able to introduce the children into deep water for the first time which has helped them increase their confidence. Overall with Gavin's support we have been able to sucessfully improve & develop our session

I contacted Gavin, having never really swam since being at school, as I had a goal of competing in a triathlon within the next 12 months and needed to learn the correct technique for freeystyle. I am now coming to the end of my first term of lessons and having improved massively since my first lesson, have just signed up for a further term to build on what I have learnt already. Gavin is an excellent teacher, patient and encouraging and makes you feel at ease, but also has the ability to push you to your full potential and get full benefit from the allocated lesson time. His knowledge and experience and friendly manner make learning to swim an enjoyable experience and far less daunting than I thought it might be. Thoroughly recommend to any adults wanting to learn to swim or to improve technique

I heard about Aqua Splash swim school and its consultancy work from origionally working up in Cumbria. I have since moved to Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire and decided to look into setting up my own swim school. I knew of the success that Aqua Splash had achieved and the proffesional coorporate image they had grown, while keeping it's family run business feel. I contacted Gavin by email with my plan. Gavin was professional and helpful in both guiding me in setting up my swim school in all elements. He provided me with continued support with my swim school before and after it was launched. I would highly recommend him and his company to anyone as a swim school consultant or for swimming lessons

We used Aqua Splash for our Brownies ‘swimmers badge’ they were very helpfull in both organising the sessions and assessing our brownies against our badge criteria, highly reccomended to any other rainbow or brownie unit’s, Aqua splash also offer discounted rates for charity organisation, which helped our unit alot

Chloe has just finished participating in the Crash Course, this was her first introduction to swimming, other than with ourselves and she thoroughly enjoyed it. After 3 days we can already see an improvement in her confidence in the water and basic skill. The class had a great atmosphere and I was very impressed with the teaching methods used. Chloe now can't wait to start lessons
