About Madden Swim School Reading

About Us

Gerry and Rose are qualified Amateur Swimming Association instructors with over 30 years' experience teaching children how to swim. Previously owners of GR Swim Schools, they have now branched out and set up under the new name of Madden Swim School, where they continue to offer their excellent Sunday swimming lessons at The Oratory School, Woodcote near Reading.

Our Kids Swimming Lessons

Madden Swim School offers a high standard of swimming tuition in a safe environment for children of all abilities, from 3 years of age through to Academy level. All the swimming lessons are taught in small classes with a ratio of 6 children or less per teacher.

We aim to produce confident and safe swimmers through our monitored program. We expect all swimmers to achieve a high standard of stroke technique and water safety skills required to enjoy other water based activities.

Gerry is a qualified Amateur Swimming Association (ASA) and Swimming Teachers Association (STA) teacher and is DBS checked with an up-to-date insurance policy. He also has a National Teachers Rescue and Life Savers Award.
