We are now celebrating over 38 years of swimming! Oakleigh Park School of Swimming was established in 1975. We pride ourselves on offering swimming lessons with restricted numbers to ensure maximum progress.
Oakleigh Park School of Swimming was established in 1975. The manager is Jonathan Rolfe. His parents Ron and Pam have worked in swimming for over forty years. They met when Ron taught Pam to swim! It was whilst teaching all those years ago they realised that teaching swimming in cold water and with the public all around was not working. Land was acquired at the tennis club in Whetstone, which is still on the same grounds in Oakleigh Road North and building commenced.
All these years on and with the same philosophy: small groups and warm water. We offer lessons to all ages and abilities and are a centre for people who wish to gain their teaching and lifesaving qualifications.
We strive to make sure that our customers visit is an enjoyable, educational and motivating experience ensuring that they leave satisfied and excited in the swimmers progress. It is not unusual to find swimmers and teachers who have enjoyed our facilities for over 30 years.
We are also delighted to manage the swimming pool at Pentland in Finchley for their staff. This is a 25m x 10m pool. Pentland own numerous brands such as Speedo, Ted Baker Footwear, Ellesse and Mitre, to name a few. This has given us the chance to grow our relationship with Speedo and you will see some of Speedo's products on our website.
In August 2011, we started taking bookings for the newly built swimming pool at Northway School, Mill Hill. We are thrilled that we can offer our lessons with our teachers to the Mill Hill and surrounding areas. In August 2013, we started the building work for our new pool in WOODSIDE PARK (on the grounds of Frith Manor School). Lessons and coaching will be available from May 2014.
In December 2010, we were awarded the 'STAMark' at Distinction level for the second time. STAmark was created by the Swimming Teachers' Association to provide a framework that would support and encourage the raising of standards within this unregulated sector. The STA wanted to develop a quality accreditation programme that specifically addressed the business and operational needs of these swim school owners, in order to raise teaching standards, promote learn-to-swim schemes and ultimately give the public confidence in the swim school they attend. The award was also the catalyst for the STA supporting the BSI British Standards in the development of PAS 81:2008; STAmark is currently the only nationally recognised quality mark that is fully aligned with PAS 81:2008 specification, and that externally validates and recognises safe practices and standards in swim schools and similar operations.
A 2011 survey showed that people come to us because:
> We have been awarded Distinction in the STA Mark accreditation
> We have small groups in warm water
> Our staff are approachable and friendly
> Our staff work by 3 objectives: Customer service, Health and Safety and Quality - go and check all swimming pools and speak to staff before making a decision
> Our prices reflect our class ratios. Check with swim schools, how many lessons you will get for the fee you pay
> Check the ratios of classes before you book anywhere. This is very important for any level of swimmer
> We pride ourselves with continuity of teachers throughout the term. This builds a trust between pupil and teacher, which ultimately helps progression
