Learn to Swim today at the Hippo Swim Club!

Swimming lessons for babies, pre-school, children and adults(ladies only).

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.

Avi is doing some other lessons in the meantime and the instructor standard is nowhere near as high as Hippo Swim Club so we’re looking forward to coming back!!

I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for providing such a fantastic swimming school which we always recommend whenever people ask. I really like the supportive and positive attitude of all of the teachers we've encountered (Luke, James, Josh and Dani spring to mind) - they strike the right balance with the children, meaning that they always enjoy swimming and try their hardest during lessons. The small classes have also been appreciated, as the children have had lots of attention and opportunities to swim (which was the reason we moved from lessons at Court Garden years ago!)
Can I just make it clear to you how good we thought James was as a teacher; Nico loved going to swimming and thought the world of him - he was very friendly and likeable but strict when he needed to be. Just what the kids needed. You've got a gem there.
Thanks again for everything, we now have a pool where we live so I'll try and make sure he practices what your lessons preached!

I can't believe the progress he's made in just a week, from not wanting to even have water splashed on his face to tonight when I couldn't get him out the bath because all he wanted to do was practice going under water! He loved last week!!
