Swim Spirits is proud to offer an exclusive programme for Home Education children aged 6-14 years old in Southampton.

We understand how important it is to give children wonderful learning experiences and we are proud to continue this in the pool providing an enriching, focused and stimulating atmosphere ideal for learning.

We believe being able to swim is life changing, leading to a love of water and opening opportunities for fun and adventure in life!

Your child can join our swim programmes as many times as required to achieve Swim England's nationally recognised awards Stages 1- 5.

Our courses are expertly designed to take your child from a Non-swimmer to an Improver Swimmer achieving Swim England Stage 5.

This is the desired level the UK's Government Department of Education would like all 11 year old's to be achieving.

With the ability to swim:

  • 25m (Chosen stroke) 

  • 15m Frontcrawl

  • 15m Backstroke

  • 10m Breaststroke

  • Jump in, tread water for 20 seconds, swim 5m, turn around, swim back and climb out.

To book your child into one of our courses and join the waiting lists, please use our online booking system:

Swim England badges and certificates for each award are £4.00 each, and can be collected on the last week of the half term.

Swimming Coach


Monday's 12.30pm - 1.00pm

Monday's 1.00pm - 1.30pm

In these classes children are taught in a fun, motivating and safe environment. They enjoy starting their swimming journey learning the fundamentals of swimming and water safety.

Teachers vary teaching poolside and in the water in these classes. All swimming equipment is provided by Swim Spirits.

We allow parents/ carers in the pool to assist their child if required by the child.

Children can achieve Swim England 1-3 in these classes.

We also use the Swim England Alpha Step Awards programme which is designed to build confidence in those who may need additional support during their swimming lessons.

They are particularly relevant for a shy/timid child, and some individuals with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND).

The Alpha Step Awards reward the development of the early stages of buoyancy, coordination, spatial awareness, breathing, and entering and leaving the pool safely.

The basic water skills and confidence gained through these Awards enable a smooth transition to Learn to Swim Stage 1 Framework allowing individuals to learn skills in their own time.

Fun in the Pool


Monday's 1.30pm - 2.00pm

Entry requirement: Swim England stage 3 certificate or recognised equivalent. 

In these classes, children have the opportunity to further their skills, techniques and confidence to a new level in a fun, dynamic way. Children can achieve Swim England certificates 3-5.
