About Us

Pisces Swim School

Pisces Swim School is based at Copthorne Prep School which has great facilities to offer our swimmers.

The pool is 16.6m long x  7m wide with both a shallow and deep end allowing our swimmers to learn water safety not only where they can stand, but out of their depth too, as part of their swimming progression. There are four diving blocks, male and female changing areas, showers and toilets and seating around the pool for parents.

We believe that swimming is a life skill that all should learn. Not only does this sport build on some of the fundamental skills in a child’s life such as balance, coordination and muscular strength, it also encourages a healthy fit lifestyle.

Our classes have up to 6 swimmers in each group providing a quality lesson where individual attention can be given.

Teachers work in the water with lower stages which helps build confidence.

Child Protection

Whilst working with your children, physical contact with your child is unavoidable. We ensure all staff adhere to the ASA Child Protection Procedures. Our instructors hold an up to date Enhanced DBS Certificate (Disclosure and Barring Service).


We request that all members of the Pisces Swim School respect Copthorne Prep School and abide by the Pisces Swim School terms and conditions. Parents must be aware of pool safety and procedures at all times. Please speak to the Swim School Manager if you have any questions and in the event of an emergency.


The use of all cameras and video equipment, including mobile telephones and tablets, is not allowed in and around the pool area or on the Copthorne Prep School premises. If you would like to take a photograph of your child in the pool then please speak to the Swim School Manager who will try to arrange this.
