Are you looking for something fun to do this summer?
Something which you and your body will value forever?
If so, we have the answer!

Located in Spring Gardens, just near the town centre of Frome, is a tranquil swimming pool where you can spend some quality time, either on your own or with your family.

We are offering a unique experience to adults and children to be taught by Steven Shaw, the founder of the Shaw method,
or one of his excellently trained Art Of Swimming teachers.

  • Learn to swim together, or transform your strokes (after months out of the water!) – within your bubble – in an exclusive, Covid-safe, private pool on the outskirts of Frome, Somerset.

  • Choose from one-to-one lessons, family fun sessions, half day weekend workshops, and intensive courses at a time to suit.

  • Maximum of 4 people in the pool
