The swimschool is a family run business with Denise, Hazel, Ann, Alisha, Mike and Sally (ASA Level 2) running the majority of the lessons:


"Hi, my name is Denise. I learned to swim at King Edmund School (KES) while my mum was the council instructor there. I qualified myself in 1985 and worked for various swimschools before taking over lessons at King Edmund in September 1990, soon after my Mum had retired. I am married and have three children who all learned to swim with Kingfishers and all play an active role in the swimschool now. I love my job and get real satisfaction from seeing the children do something for the first time, whether it be the most nervous child getting in the pool without any tears to the more advanced children completing their 5000m badge! My hobbies include swimming (naturally) and cycling and I try to do one of these activities every day." 


"Hi, I'm Hazel I have worked for the swimschool since 2006. I am married and have three grown-up sons. During the day I work as the administrator for Kingfishers and am usually your first point of contact when you email or phone us. I love teaching swimming and find my job very rewarding."

We have lots of young helpers who have mostly come through the swim school as pupils before returning to help with the younger children. 


Emerald has been with the swim school since she was 5 years old. She has recently left to start university. She is also our resident lifeguard on fun swim weeks.
