Aqua Blue is a small and friendly children’s swim school based in Compton and Hermitage, near Newbury. They understand the importance of teaching children in a safe, structured but relaxed environment; no child will ever feel that they are pressured to complete a task until they are ready. They aim to deliver lessons with a high activity level and a focus on fun and engaging learning.

Using the Swim England Learn to Swim Programme, their children work towards both stage badges and distance badges from Stage 1 to Stage 10. Within this framework they offer their highly popular parent and child lessons through to a one hour training session for their stage 7 and above swimmers—which is effectively a mini swim club with a structured programme of 30 minute length swimming including races, diving and personal survival.

At Brockhurst and Marlston House School School in Hermitage, there is also a fantastic adult session from 7-8pm.

They aim to keep a consistency with  their teachers who get to know the children well; they are skilled and experienced but most importantly they are kind and treat children as individuals. With only 2 classes run at any one time, only 6 children per class and up to 3 water assistants, they enable their teachers to provide a tailored learning experience for your child.

They also take pride in offering clear and constructive feedback on their pupils progress. Many of their swimmers progress through their beginner programme, through to training sessions and on to Newbury District swimming club when they leave them.

The Aqua Blue Swim School catchment area includes Newbury, Thatcham, Hermitage, Curridge, Streatley & Goring, Hagbourne, Didcot, Abingdon, Chieveley, Wantage and Wallingford.
