About Us

Splash-Happy swim school was established in 1999 by Hazel Lees who runs the swim school with the assistance of several members of her family in Clifton and Westbury-On-Trym.
As the swim school has grown the ‘family’ has had to grow also.  The teachers we employ are trained to a high standard and are under constant scrutiny so we are confident we can deliver the best swimming education to you and your family.

All teachers and poolside staff are regularly screened using the enhanced DBS checks. The swim school is fully insured.

The teachers will be in the water with the Non-swimmers and Beginners classes as this builds trust and confidence and encourages participation. During the restrictions due to COVID all teachers will be teaching from poolside.

The classes are kept small with a maximum of 8 learners in each class. A combination of songs, games and drills are included in our lessons to aid learning. A variety of flotation and teaching aids are available to inspire confidence and participation.  All learners will receive group and individual instruction and feedback throughout the lesson.  

For the older more advanced swimmers we offer a range of classes from stroke technique to pre-competition. During the restrictions due to COVID these class may take up to 10 learners as the lanes will be double width.
