About Us

Sensitive Water Solutions (SWS) Swim School is the largest private Swim School in Neath Port Talbot.  The school was established in 1997 with just 3 teachers and has since grown and evolved gradually, whilst keeping in line with STA standards.

Following a long association with the School, beginning in 1999 as an instructor, Kelly Gillings took over as Owner of the School in April 2010.  Her mission is to maintain & build on the excellent standards the School has acquired throughout its successful history.

We provide lessons from Llangatwg Comprehensive School for over 600 pupils of a varying range of ability; from our Splash Classes for Parents & Babies, right through to Advanced Classes for more experienced swimmers.

With a team of 40+ members of staff, emphasis is placed on maintaining small classes of appropriately matched children by age/ability, who are continually monitored, enabling pupils to progress at their own pace.

As well as holding Lifesaving qualifications, our staff are also trained to the STA Basic Certificate and some additional members of staff possess the STA Full Certificate.  We also have members of staff that are qualified to train our instructors, ensuring that our new teachers meet the high standards of the School.

Staff receive regular training and updates to ensure that their qualifications are maintained and any new procedures for first aid and safety are adopted.

All staff are subject to the Enhanced Disclosure from the DBS.
