Lessons were orginally founded in 2000 by mother and daughter Susan Fynney and Sara Pegden, who shared a love of swimming. 

Having spotted a gap in the market for quality swimming lessons, Sara, and Susan set out with their planning, research and training and Swimstars & Dolphins was launched.

Each week we now teach thousands of children to swim, and develop their water confidence by our unique teaching style in our custom built boutique swimming centres.

As one of the UK’s leading providers of children’s swimming lessons, our highly trained and qualified teachers are experts at identifying and enhancing your child’s swimming ability and adapting activities that will nurture and improve their confidence.

We have the highest standards and our approach is unique and your child is truly at the centre of everything we do.

Our unique and bespoke programmes are continually developed by Swimstars & Dolphins and delivered seamlessly by our expert Swimming Teachers and Water Buddies.

All of our team set out to encourage your child to learn this important life skill and create a love of swimming for life.
