Welcome to the Hippo Swim Club

We are a small, friendly, highly qualified, learn to swim club based in High Wycombe, Bucks, who have been in operation since the mid 90’s.

Our emphasis is to teach children and adults to swim. Our courses include water safety, survival skills, learning to dive and we aim to have fun at the same time.

For further details please use the tabs above or email info@hipposwimclub.co.uk with your enquiry.

Lessons postponed until further notice due to Coronavirus pandemic.

  • Hi Elaine
    Thanks for your email with regards to re-enrolment.
    We will definitely re-enrolling Melissa for September through to December. We are very pleased with her progress since Easter - she is almost swimming on her own and actually asked if she could try to do that last Saturday.
    I will send the form and cheques asap. We've a lot on at the moment so I hope I remember!
    We're also going away in August so I'm hoping a week with a pool at our disposal will be good reinforcement for Melissa.
    Thank you again for fitting us into your swimming school and please would you convey my thanks to James. He's a fabulous teacher.

  • Hi Elaine, Been meaning to drop you a line for weeks now!
    I just wanted to say how impressed Finn and I are with James - Finn's Level One swimming instructor, Saturdays at 9am.
    He is brilliant - Finn has come on so much this term - James is supberb - no time for messing about - but he still keeps it fun, but works them hard - without them really knowing!
    Thanks to the two girls in the pool too! sorry I don't know their names!
    Please do pass this on - we've never get a chance to chat/thanks any of the guys on Saturday - they're so bust and focused on the kids!. Thanks again!

  • We have been using Hippo Swim Club for the past few years and I can highly recommend them. The teacher pupil ratio is low and not only is there a qualified instructor poolside, there is also another support staff in the water with the children. The instructors are professional and are polite whilst also maintaining high standards of behaviour to minimise disruption and pupils putting other pupils at potential risk. The instructors are extremely responsive to personal needs and advice and even loaned a set of dolphin discs to our son for our summer holiday. Elaine is also very accomodating in sorting out times for lessons that coincide with siblings. I have used several companies/swim schools in the past and this is the best by far. Many thanks and we look forward to the new term in September.

  • I just wanted to say what a fantastic swimming club 'Hippo Swim Club' is. The staff are always friendly & encouraging. My girls learnt so much, so quickly under the guidance of your staff. They are now both members of Wycombe Swim Club and have the medals to prove it.Â
