Freestyle Swim School is a Cornish company that aims to enable adults and children of all ages to become confident, capable swimmers. We teach around 500 children a week in various pools, as well as providing adult swimming lessons/training and baby and pre-school lessons.

Although continuously growing in numbers, we aim to maintain the small, friendly swim school service that was established when the swim school was first set up in 2011. We spend a lot of time in the water but aim to respond to all enquiries within a week of initial contact.

At present we provide lessons for all ages and abilities in Carnon Downs, Truro and Penryn

Swim 1-to-1
Individual tuition is ideal if you want to reach specific goals in your swimming and you prefer the undivided attention of the teacher. When you cannot commit to a regular course day and time the one-to-one lessons allow you to book a block of classes and take as your schedule allows. 

Adult improver sessions

These sessions are suitable for swimmers who are looking to improve their strokes and swim fitness

  • Age 3 months to 3 years

  • Your fully qualified instructor will lead you in supporting and guiding your baby through our planned, progressive lessons, both having fun and strengthening the bond between you. 

  • We aim to help you feel confident in introducing water skills to your baby or toddler.

  • All teachers aim to give babies and young children early swimming skills that are a prerequisite to independent swimming when physically ready.

  • All our teaching for these lessons is done in a fun, informative way with a child-centred, not a goal-dominated approach.

  • The lessons are very sociable and will give you the opportunity to make new friends together.

  • We offer 30-minute classes with up to eight (venue dependent) baby/parent couples in a pool where the temperature averages 30°C.

  • Only £9:50 for both adult and child pairing (termly payment to be made)
