Propeller Swim School Levels 



All levels and teaching within the Propeller programme are ability based rather than age based. We put a lot of emphasis on quality technical based teaching getting the foundations right for each skill. Incorporated into the sessions are fun and water safety.

Swimmers progress to the next level once they have attained the requirements and don’t wait till the end of term. Assessments are ongoing so the swimmer keeps progressing during the term.

All classes are for 30 minutes.
