More Information about Tadpoles Swimming School of Bath

Based in Bath, Tadpoles swimming school specialises in teaching children of all ages from as young as 2½ years upwards.


Tadpoles Swimming School was founded and is run by Carol Brake. As a former Bath Dolphin swimmer, Carol has always had a love for swimming and enjoys sharing her enthusiasm of the sport with children and adults. She is a fully qualified ASA Teacher with 20yrs experience working for a variety of swimming clubs in and around Bath. She also holds the National Pool Rescue Award, is a member of the Institute of Swimming and is CRB checked.

At Tadpoles Swimming School, we combine the STA Learn to Swim Programme with recognised teaching methods to build water confidence, development of water safety techniques and excellent stroke technique.

We teach in a fun relaxing environment, using warm and inviting swimming pools in and around Bath. Classes are intentionally small to provide a personal and tailored approach to swimming. We have found that this approach has demonstrated the highest success and an excellent environment for the not so confident beginner.
