Scholes Swimming School – The Swim Team

Scholes Elmet Primary School

At The Swim Team, we’re passionate about teaching children to swim – and not just for fun (though that’s important too!). We believe swimming is a vital life skill, and we’ve been teaching children in and around Leeds for over 20 years. We’re a family-run business, and our team of dedicated, long-term instructors are all personally trained by our owner, ensuring the highest quality lessons for your child. Whether you’re experienced in the water or a complete novice, we offer support with stroke development, technique and overall confidence in swimming at our swim school in Scholes Elmet Primary School.

Why Choose The Swim Team for Your Child’s Swimming Lessons?

  • Small Classes & In-Water Teachers: We keep our classes small (5:1 child-to-instructor ratio) and our teachers are always in the water with your child, providing hands-on support and guidance.
  • Safe & Fun Environment: We prioritise your child’s safety above all else. Our teachers are all DBS-checked and trained in water safety. We create a fun, relaxed environment where children can learn at their own pace.
  • Proven Teaching Method: Our Swim England-affiliated programme focuses on building confidence first, then developing technique. We offer certificates and badges to reward progress and keep children motivated.
  • Open Lessons & Parental Viewing: We believe in open communication and transparency. Parents are welcome to watch their children’s lessons from the poolside and see how they develop session by session.
  • Preparing Children for Summer: Our lessons equip children with the skills and confidence they need to enjoy water safely on holidays and in day-to-day life.
