Collette's Swim School is a small friendly swim school that has been running for just over 6 years with 10+ years experience in teaching and coaching swimming.


All of Collette's instructors are:

  • Swim England level 2 qualified

  • Insured with the Institute of Swimming

  • Qualified in The National Rescue Award for Swim Teachers and Coaches.

  • DBS Checked

  • Safeguarding Certificate



My main aim for students coming to my swim school is for them to progress to the best they can and to also enjoy swimming so that they will always want to continue throughout their life. 

One other goal I want to achieve is to show students that swimming doesn't have to stop after they have completed all the levels. My aim for this is to encourage people to stay in the world of swimming and show them there is more to do than the expected laps. To achieve this goal I created a tryout group which I have been running since 2016. This is a group that introduces competition style swimming, Synchronise swimming, Water Polo, Snorkeling and Rookie Lifeguard. Through running this group, I have had students attend a Swimming Club and a Synchronise Swimming team.

Collette's Swims School provides high quality swimming lessons with the best success rate. Each class has four students, this allows each swimming instructor to give equal attention to all students and allows the students to push to their capabilities. We also have a variety of teachers with a mixed style of teaching/personality so that there's a teacher that will suit everyone. So if there's a style you prefer when learning then please let us know. 
All our swimming instructors have many years experience of swimming and are all ASA level two qualified and insured swimming instructors. We follow the Swim England National Plan and award the students with Swim England distance awards.


My first initial interest in swimming would have been at four months when my mother took me to baby and parent classes. I then went onto swimming five miles at the age of nine and was approached by a local swimming club within the same year. I later joined Larkfield Swimming club at the age of twelve and went onto to winning many competitions. When I was sixteen years old, I had taken and passed my National Pool Lifeguarding Qualification and moved onto pass my level one ASA swim teaching assistant when I was seventeen years old. The following year, I then went onto pass my ASA level two swim teaching course when I was eighteen years old. In 2009, I joined Canterbury Christ Church University to study Business, this is where joined the University's swimming team, I went onto compete in the British University Championships until 2012 when I had graduated from Canterbury Christ Church University. After I had graduated, I carried on swim teaching all over Kent for ten years, I consider myself as a very ambitious and athletic person.
