Chiswick

Our modest lime painted frontage, under the arches of Stamford Brook railway tracks houses our unique purpose designed Swim School. The building may seem compact but we are our very own 'tardis' where every attempt has been made to make your visit as comfortable and stress free as possible.

The pool itself under an arched shaped ceiling is 12 metres in length, 1.2 metres deep and is heated to a constant 32 degrees. We treat the water with an Ultraviolet (UV) light system, which allows us to use only minimal chlorine content and which is therefore much kinder to our swimmers.

Knowing how difficult changing for swimming can be, especially whilst keeping an eye on more than one child, provided is a playroom near the child friendly changing area where you can securely let your little ones play. We have a second play area near Reception where children can enjoy cartoons, read a book or make use of the other available toys. Our Reception also includes a CCTV screen which allows you to observe your child's lesson as well as purchase a coffee and possibly enjoy a much-needed sit down. We have a small, ever growing shop in reception where you can purchase swimming items and a small selection of child friendly snacks.

We have every confidence that you will find our Team warm and friendly and all we ask is that you take your shoes off at the door!

  • Ultraviolet light (UV) is highly effective at inactivating bacteria and viruses and also for oxidising organic species in water. Ultraviolet disinfection consists of a physical, chemical-free process, attacking the vital DNA of the bacteria directly, including examples such as parasites, Cryptosporidium or Giardia, which are extremely resistant to chemical disinfectants such as chlorine. In addition, it reduces chloramines by a variety of mechanisms. UV technology has advanced to the point where it can easily enhance the disinfection and oxidation of all sorts of pools.
