About us

girl underwaterSwim Stars, founded in 2006 at Marian Vian Primary School by Liz Hughes and Anne Sanders-Jones with the purpose of creating swimming lessons with small groups in a friendly effective learning environment. The “Swim Stars” school has expanded over the years, moving into new swimming venues and taking on more teachers. In 2012 Liz's partner, Tom Butcher, set up a new swimming school based at Bethlem Hospital pool named Duck and Dive, this operation has now been brought under the Swim Stars banner, we are also pleased to announce that we have recently opened a new exciting venue at the Hollies Countryside Club pool in Sidcup.

Our instructors and assistants are dedicated and qualified ASA, STA or RLSS teachers and all have current CRB checks. We ensure that our Swim Stars instructors stay ahead of the game, regularly attending courses on up to date training methods, techniques and professional developments within our industry.
