Swimming classes for all ages and abilities, based in North London.


Classes for children and babies in Barnet Sunday mornings and private lessons at your home pool!

Learning to swim is fun and relaxed, and I emphasise good technique and build water confidence.


My little boy had such a wonderful time at his week long Turtles Swim School course. I honestly think it was the best money I've spent since becoming a parent.  


After going to a term's worth of (extremely expensive!) lessons with another swimming school, my little boy was still very scared of going in the pool and would cling on to me with fear throughout every lesson and refuse to take part in any activities. 


This completely changed during our week with Turtles. The friendly and relaxed lessons were a joy to be in and we loved all the games and songs. My little boy quickly started to smile and laugh his way through the lessons, and started asking me to let go of him so he could move more independently through the water. He was also happy to get in and out of the pool on his own, something I thought I'd never see! 


Since our week with Turtles we've had many happy visits to our local swimming pool together. He looks forward to going swimming now and trying out all the skills he learned in the lessons. We're now looking forward to time swimming together as a family on holiday soon. Thank you so much!

Mummy to a 2 year old boy

Just finished an intensive swimming course with my 2.5yr old daughter at Tiny Turtles swim school and really recommend it. The regular lessons are on a Sunday morning at a school pool in Barnet. The pool is a lovely shallow pool that my daughter could stand up in, and it was as warm as a bath!


Clare was an amazing teacher so patient with my little one. My 15 month old daughter screamed her head off when it came to her first lesson and now I would say she is confident little splasher! Thank you so much again Clare & I look forward to starting in September.


Tiny Turtles Three was really fun and my stubborn 2 year old seemed to love it. Highly recommend Clare Foskett as a great teacher for little ones!


I've just finished Tiny Turtles One and would definitely recommend Clare. Thank you for being so patient with my little girl! Looking forward to September.
