Riley is still really enjoying his swimming lessons and I feel he is progressing well. He loves Nicola and I think she will always be his favourite as she was his very first teacher when he started at willow tree, but he is always happy and confident to get in no matter which teacher is there, which is a testament to your great team.

Eleanor loved it thank you! She can’t wait for next week.
Very impressed with the set up and organisation too.

I just wanted to thank the whole team for their hard work this year. My daughter Alice looks forward to going swimming and it is great that she can be taught by people who are always happy, enthusiastic & patient and are dedicated to getting the best out of our children. I hope you know how much we all appreciate you.
Keep up the good work

Thank you so much for offering to swop Eva and Max’s swimming lessons, however after discussing it with them, Max was absolutely adamant that he wants to stay in Nicola’s class. Therefore please could we keep our current arrangement for the time being.
This really is a testament to Nicola, Max absolutely adores her, it’s a pleasure to sit on the sides and watch him having so much fun and learning lots at the same time!!

We would like to renew for Jackson Webber please and also I would like to say how impressed we are with his tuition by Nicola and how well he has developed with Harrogate School of Swimming. Thanks so much

It was my final swim lesson tonight as I have achieved, under the tuition of James and Dawn, my personal goals.
I would without hesitation recommend sessions to friends and colleagues.

I just wanted to email to say that Saffy’s swimming session with Nicola this morning was a revelation!
I had been told at her precious swim school that she struggled to do 10 metres on her back. So this morning Nicola asked them to swim 20 m on front and back. ..and she did it so easily we couldn’t believe it!
Thought it was great how you focus on technique with them. Nicola definitely held Saffy’s attention brilliantly …which is no mean feat!!!
Just goes to show how the right environment brings out the best in a child. Saffy loved the lesson and Nicola seemed to think it was the right class for her. So if she says it’s OK, we would like to go ahead and book her in.
I am so pleased we took the decision to move Saffy!

My little boy Jacob had his first lesson today at 2pm and I really had to email to say a huge thank you.
He was totally panicked when he first entered the water and started crying and calling out for me! Not what I wanted but then his teacher, Jess, said he could hold on “like a monkey” and she then proceeded to to build his confidence at the same time as giving equal attention to the other students. In 20 minutes he had gone from being scared to jumping in, timidly, but still he jumped in.
I also got to watch some of the other teaching and I was so impressed.

The Easter Intensive course was really fantastic, my three have come on leaps and bounds. I’d like to keep up the momentum and move to weekly lessons.

Just a quick note to say thank you for providing Ross with a great introduction to swimming. He started the week frowning and crying and ended up smiling and loving it. The instructors were really good, being able to adapt their approach very quickly to suit Ross’s needs.
Dr Jonathan Muir April Easter Intenesive 2016
Just a quick email to let you know how pleased I was with my swimming lessons, Al was fantastic, and I shall be recommending him to lots of people.
The rest of the team were very friendly as well, it’s all down to me now to put the time in the pool, but if I feel I need some more lessons I know where to come.

A little feedback – Josh now loves going to his swimming class and the girls (he says they explain things in much more detailed way), I’ve also noticed his swimming has come on massively in the 3 lessons which is fantastic!
Nick (Academy Lessons), Janaury 2016
I wanted to drop a quick line to say what can only be described as a phenomenal job by your team.
As we have previously talked Jess has only just turned 3, and whilst her confidence in the water is fantastic, her security & confidence with others is not at where I initially thought it could be.
Ella & James have been fantastic in working on her interaction, not just them but Nicola, & Michelle, take time to interact with her.
I spoke to James post her Saturday session that if she impedes learning for other members of the group to let us know immediately.
Awesome job, is what I entitled the email and it is the term where I finish this email
Once again thank you
PS Max is really enjoying his time with Michelle also
Lee & Laura, Janaury 2016
Thank you for checking-in and yes, she had a great time. James was really lovely and she’s already looking forward to next week!
Faye, Janaury 2016
Thanks Louise. Nel had a fantastic lesson. We were really impressed with the classes. I can honestly say it was the best swimming lesson Nel has had and Paul and I saw her progress even within the 30 minutes with Megan, she is fabulous – so engaging.
Really appreciate your email.
Lou, Janaury 2016
I really enjoyed the session – Tash was an excellent teacher and made me feel really comfortable, despite initial nerves! I’m looking forward to
my next lesson already.

Freddie was smiling throughout the lesson and as soon as he got out he was so pleased with how he had done and looking forward to next week.
My main concern was that he wouldn’t get in the water and that it would be a battle to get him to go back – no problem there at all!!
Thank you for your email I’ll read it to Freddie in the morning. Leo was just as excited, I was surprised by how confident he was in the water.

Josh loved his lesson with James. It was brilliant to have the helpers there I really think it made a difference.
Beth absolutely loved her diving lesson and can’t wait to get there tomorrow.
Sally, February Half Term Intensives 2015
Lovely to meet you this morning.
I think you know that Evie loves swimming for Kim – but it was lovely to see Harry enjoying himself and doing so well in his class today. He promptly told me when he had got changed that ‘I enjoyed today and I’d like to do it again’ !!
Richard, February Half Term Intensives 2015
Jake and Robyn loved their session this morning. James was really good wit
