Quackers Swim School has a special place in our minds because this is where my son started swimming at the age of two. All the staff at Quackers have been great at building my son’s confidence. He has really enjoyed the lessons even though he was anxious before the start of some of them. Now he is 5 and we are moving out of the area – so sad to leave this great swim school! Special thanks to Jo for bringing a positive change in every aspect since she joined.
Dear Quackers team, thank you for all your hard work teaching our three children to swim. They have thoroughly enjoyed their time at Quackers.
Thank you for teaching me to be a good swimmer. I’ve loved every minute of it.
My girls have all enjoyed Quackers lessons over the years. Great instructors such as yourself, Lisa, Ben and Connor have ensured that my girls have progressed at an amazing rate whilst having fun and feeling safe. Please pass on our love and appreciation to the team and all the best for the future.
Just a quick note to say thank you for everything you have done for Abigail with her swimming. Since she joined Quackers her progress has been amazing with her achievements over the past 3 ½ years exceeding our expectations. The friendly calm and dedicated approach of the team has seen Abigail’s confidence grow weekly with her looking forward to her sessions. Her technical advancement is incredible and it is a delight to watch her swimming. Thank you for all your support and we wish you all the very best in the future.
Dear everyone at Quackers, thank you for teaching me to swim. I really enjoyed coming to Quackers.
Olivia is very happy with her achievement; her very first swimming badge and certificate. We are all so proud of how well she’s started swimming and how much her confidence has grown despite being blind. This wouldn’t have been possible without the amazing team at Quackers Swim School. The Manager Jo Lester even went into Olivia’s school to braille the certificate so Olivia could read it. Jo and her staff go above and beyond for my daughter and I’ll be eternally grateful. Thank you and well done to Olivia.
Let us take this opportunity to thank you and the teachers at Quackers for the years of excellent lessons our children have received. They are now really confident swimmers and thoroughly enjoy pools and sea swimming on holiday with the knowledge they are safe to do so due to their lessons. I hope the Swim School is able to teach for many years to come.

I just wanted to say a huge thank you for the bubble swim today, we were thrilled to bits to get one on the first day of reopening as it was our son’s birthday and we were keen to do something as he missed out last year! The set up was fantastic, allowing each bubble to use a separate changing room at the end of the session which were then fully cleaned before the next family used them. Our kids had so much fun on the floats and it was great that they were able to jump into the pool – something they wouldn’t have been able to do at a public session!
I can’t thank you enough for such excellent swimming lessons. Thomas has loved them and the instructors have been head and shoulders above any instructors I’ve experienced elsewhere for this age group. We will both miss our lessons at Quackers, but this works better for our family. Thank you so much and I will be recommending you to anyone who asks.
I just wanted to say thank you for being so lovely with my child on Saturday morning with her swimming session. Quackers made a stressful situation much easier and stopped my child from being so anxious about her new class in the deep end. I really appreciate your help and assistance and for the record I thought you were amazing when you got in the pool yourself to help an upset little girl. You really have a great swimming school!
