Great Success at the European Championships

JC, June 2018

The one week intensive course is a great way to improve on swimming technique. Our daughter really enjoyed it and her swimming was much improved. The one to one teaching is really good.

MaxH, April 2018

Learning to swim as an adult may seem a daunting task but taking the plunge ( pun intended ) is well worth it!
Be assured that Tim and Chris can handle anything you throw at them with patience, humour and understanding proving that it is never too late to learn.

This ‘reference’ is for Mario, whose skill, patience and positivity has changed me from a lifelong non-swimmer to somebody whose swimming is now commented on by others in the pool. I can now swim a really good breaststroke and am learning front crawl. I would never have thought this possible.

Anna Saunders, November 2017

We have been attending MXT swimming for years and wish to thank the amazing teachers for their tuition ,experience and enthusiasm with which they have inspired our boys to love swimming. When our boys first started at MXT they were scared of the water but very quickly they learnt to love swimming and excelled under the great teaching. We continued it once they could swim as they both wanted to get better and better! Tom and Ben say thank you so much.

I highly recommend MXT to any parent who wants to get their children swimming. It’s so worth it.

Singh Family, August 2017

This is the place to send your children. One can afford most places but this is the best. I learnt here from scratch and was able to swim well in Hawaii, the Indian ocean and the Caribbean and I am now happy and safe in the water. Both children are now happy keen swimmers. If not for any other reason than for safety and survival. I saw progress from the very first lesson. The staff are friendly and focused.

Sarah Cork, August 2017

Thank you for a great week swimming, Caitlin has been a fantastic teacher and Eliza's swimming has improved more in a week than in months of other lessons and she's so confident and excited about putting her new diving and jumping skills into practice on holiday!

Amanda Di Clemente, August 2017

We were so impressed with the quality of teaching on the weekly intensive, that we booked an extra week!
My 3 children have dramatically improved; 2 of them complete non swimmers (and rather nervous in the water) are now jumping in with confidence and can do 5 metres! My older son, had dreadful technique and has improved so much! We will definately be returning and highly recommend the school. Its teachers, each one of them, expresses such empathy, sensitivity, enthusiam and knowledge! I will even be booking some adult lessons so that i can catch up with the kids!

Miki B, August 2017

Best swim school around,taught both my children to swim quickly ,and they really enjoyed every lesson.

H Parker , August 2017

All of my children have attended the MXT Intensive sessions over the past few years and their swimming has really improved as a result. Lovely teachers and very flexible booking system, highly recommended.

Mrs Mills, August 2017

Well organised lessons with teachers who are able to engage the children with visible improvements in a short space of time. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND.

Jenny Cannadine, August 2017

My son has really grown in confidence in the last week. I wasn't sure it was worth the cost of one to one lessons, but I'm so glad I decided to do it. The manual manipulation technique of showing the child exactly where and how to move their arms and legs seems to produce instantaneous correct strokes! We have gone from my son being a limpet on my arm to him roaming freely on a float around the pool and even some swimming without it. I hope I can pick up the good work where our intensive lessons finish.

Naomi L, August 2017

My son has absolutely loved his lessons here. Every day he has been so excited to go to swimming and can't wait to get in the water!
I can see his confidence grow with each session and a big improvement has been made already.
I would definitely recommend MXT!

Clare Mann, August 2017

We had read good reviews for MXT so decided to sign our 5 year old son up to an intensive course. We have not been disappointed. Our son's confidence in the water has increased massively and he now jumps in happily with no armbands. He has gone from not being able to swim to being able to swim about 5 metres. Great friendly coaching. Not cheap but worth every penny.

Katie Watts, August 2017

My daughter has been swimming with MXT for 2 years now and she loves it. She has grown in both confidence and ability. The instructors work at her pace, we feel it is great value for money as we see real progression in her technique. Over the 2 years we have had a few different instructors all of whom have been of a high standard. In addition to weekly swimming lessons, we often do an intensive course which enables my daughter to perfect skills she has been working on and where possible gain distance badges which she is always delighted with.

Sophie Winterton, August 2017

We love MXT! Our 8 year old twins have gone from strength to strength since starting intensive courses. We have just completed our third week, and the instructors continue to develop a stylish and strong technique, whilst ensuring it remains fun. All instructors have brought individual strengths to lessons, and the twins always look forward to them.
