Gary Solly Swim School


Hello Gary. Is the last session this Friday (4th)?
Hi how much are your lessons plz? Looking for lessons for three of my children.
Thank you to the wonderful swim school both of my children (who only joined 3 weeks ago) have found a new confidence in their swimming thanks to your tutoring.
They felt like they had really achieved something getting their certificates tonight.
Already excited to start up next term.
Fantastic swim school, all of my 4 children have been taught by Gary and his team of teachers. They teach the small ones in the pool until they are confident to swim unaided. Then they are moved through all the stages until they are confident swimmers. Couldn't have asked for better teachers and a more friendly swim school ❤️ Highly recommend them to anyone!
Within 5 minutes of arriving it was clear just what you swim school offers. The attention to detail and technique, the encouragement of all the children both pool side and in the water is exemplary.
Both of my children came out smiling, feeling enthused and excited to come to their next lesson.
A wonderful group of people who show so much care to the children.
How much for a session and where is this located pleasex
One very happy little lady tonight, she found it hard going but has great​ determination ! Amazing achievement . Wonderful support and encouragement from the very talented team who must have the patience of saints ! 👏👏👏

Hello Parents,children and adult swimmers.
We have just about finished our children's first term and it has been a great success. Below are the pics of the new T shirts and and a couple of new faces.
We are now re-starting our adult club session on Tuesday's at 6.30pm and looking forward to seeing you all after a long gap.
We are still working under Covid Restrictions with only 14 swimmers allowed in the pool, but hopefully in mid June this will improve.
If anyone needs more information please contact me on [email protected]

[04/26/21]   Hi everyone.
Just a reminder to all parents and children. We start back again next Tuesday and Friday and if I have missed anyone sorry, but please get back as soon as possible.
Sooooo looking forward to starting again.🏊‍♀️😃

[04/10/21]   Hi Parents.
We are thankfully ready to restart our swimming lessons again at Brune Park starting Friday 7th May. Our intention is to start with a short 5 week term and then increase to a further 5 weeks if this runs smoothly and no further lock downs. If the demand is strong, we will also open up sessions on Tuesdays.

5.00-5.30 Beginners, Improvers, deep water swimmers
5.45-6.15 Beginners, Improvers, deep water swimmers
6.30-7.00 Deep water swimmers or mini club
7.15-7.45 Club.

Below are a few bullet points to be aware of.

• Staggered start times as requested by Brune Park.
• Covid restrictions with only 14 children per session.
• We can use the changing room after their swim but no showers available.
• No parents allowed in the viewing area during lessons. But must remain on school grounds.
• Limited helpers allowed in the water with face shields.
• Children must come in swim costume.

Further information and photos of the how the session will run will come later once your child has been booked on. Hope this all makes sense but please email me if you need more clarification. [email protected] or 01329 319391 please leave a message and I will get back to you after 6pm.

[04/05/21]   After a long gap we are now looking at starting swimming again, and hoping you are all keen and excited to re-start again. We are initially looking at starting on Fridays only with a 5 week term and if all goes well increasing this to Tuesday's.
Our starting back date will be Friday 7th May with 4 sessions and we are still restricted to 14 children.
I will be putting the booking information out at the end of the week, in the mean time dig out your swim bathers and goggles.

Wishing you all a wonderful Christmas and a happy New year. Just hoping and crossing fingers and toes we can all get together again in February.
Many thanks for all your help and support over the troubled year. ###☃️☃️☃️


It is with a sad heart we will not be starting swimming this Friday. Such a shame after such a long break from our swim school.
We will look at starting again in January so keep in touch or email me.
Send my best wishes to all the children and will not be to upset at this stoppage again.
Gary Xx :(


Hi Everyone.
Great news we are starting back at swimming on Friday 6th November. I have missed you all and looking forward to welcoming you back. If you are looking at coming back and I have missed you somehow please drop me a line.
As you can see the pool liner is now fitted and a new safer handrail is in place.
Also I am hopeful the school will allow us to use the changing rooms, but will keep you updated soon.
Gary. X


Popped down to Brune Park today to check out the pool and to see how other pool users are finding restrictions with lessons. I am more confident going forward and have now put out an email with our restart and pool layout. If you have not received the email or I don't have your email address please reply asap.
Hope you are all well and looking forward to starting back on 6th Nov.
Photo is a snap shot of one of the pool session and the limited children we are allowed in the pool, but call me if you need help. Gary


Just a quick update on return to swimming. Last night I had my first pool swim for many months to have a fitness swim but also to check how other pools operate during this difficult period. It was strange to come all ready to swim with no changing or shower facilities available and then to leave through a back exit in a wet swim costume and a towel wrap. GLC have done a good job in my opinion on keeping within the rules applied by all the swim organisations and Government regulations. These will be similar to us when we return after half term but in a smaller space. I look forward to our return and hope we are able to implement all of the safety rules but at the same time have a enjoyable swim environment. Keep safe and keep in touch. Gary. X ( Loved my swim).


Just another photo from last nights swim at GLC. Pleased to have a swim finally in a pool but sad all the fun of meeting friends is at a distance. Please get in contact if you would like a chat or more information. Gary X

[08/09/20]   Hello Parents. Aug 2020
Swim school update COVID-19
We are working closely with Brune Park, Swim England and RLSS as to the way forward to get back to swimming lessons.
Our Priority is the health and safety of the children and teachers, but need to work within the new regulations.
We will need to consider how many children we can accommodate safely within the new guidelines, also allowing for all teaching to be done from the pool side.
We will keep you updated when able and hopefully we can re-open the swim school when it's safe to do so. Watch this space. 09/07/2020

Incredible support and patience praised as pools get green light to reopen Swim England has praised the incredible patience and support of the aquatics community after pools were finally given the green light to start reopening.


This has been a long wait and most welcome. Finally we can get out and swim in the open. I have really missed getting that lovely feeling of water and especially in the open air.
Hope you are all well and enjoying the weather and getting out and about safely.
Hopefully soon we can get back to swimming again as I miss you all. If you have a happy picture or memory please post it on the swim school page. Take care. Gary Xx


Hi parents, children, teachers and helpers. Looking for budding artists or photographers who can draw or paint a swimming themed picture. Share your fun happy pictures with everyone to keep everyone smiling. 😀 maybe a prize for the best pictures. Love to all. Gary. Xx

[04/05/20]   Hi Parents.
Hope you are all well in these challenging times. I wanted to put a quick message out thanking lots of parents who have sent lovely messages of support to small businesses like my swim school. As so many parents have kindly posted they will not require a refund for the Spring term or added extra sessions to next term.
But I am also aware that many parents are having tough times, so with this in mind anyone requiring a refund please text me your bank details or call me on my home number.
(Tuesday £7 and Fridays £14).
Please keep looking at Facebook or my Web page for more updates. Stay safe. Gary XX

[03/20/20]   Dear parents.
It is sad news I’m afraid but probably sensible in the current circumstances, Brune Park have closed the school from 3pm to all hirers.
This leaves us falling short of 2 Friday and 1 Tuesday session. This will obviously be added on to next term when we hopefully be all together again very soon.
Could you all please pass on to as many people as you can and I will keep you updated on any information in the coming weeks.
Take care everyone and I wish you all good health in the coming weeks and months.
Gary. Xx

[03/19/20]   Parents. So sorry but the school has still not communicated their intentions on keeping the pool open. Brune Park will be holding a meeting in the morning and I will be informed after 1 pm on whether the whole school will be close or not. So please be positive and keep looking for my messages tomorrow. Thanks. Gary.

[03/19/20]   Hi Parents. Still no news on the pool for tomorrow but they promise me they will let me know tonight. Keep watching for more info. Gary.

[03/17/20]   Hi Parents.
At this moment in time Swimmimg is still continuing until we are told otherwise. Hope everyone is well and stays that way for some time to come. See you all later. Gary. X

[03/13/20]   Parents many thanks for getting back to me and hoping I got everyone either by Facebook or text. It’s been mad. 😆
We still have time to squeeze in the last 2 weeks so cross fingers all in life will be good.
Have a good weekend and see you next week. Gary. Xx

[03/13/20]   Parents.
I am so sorry to let you know so late in the day but the pool is shut due to Chemical imbalance. I have only just found out so I can only apologise for the late notice. Can you please spread the word to close friends who might not pick this up.
Gary. X

[02/05/20]   Can anyone help with a boys Jasper Conrad coat possibly picked up in error from the boys changing room. Could you let me know found. Thanks. Gary.


Don't forget swimming start's again tomorrow 7th at 4.45 and this Friday 10th. Hope you looking forward to the new term.


Happy New year from all at Gary Solly Sim School and we look forward to seeing you all next week. Gary XX

[12/26/19]   Happy Christmas to all your children and families over the festive period. Gary, Maria and boys.XX


Well done to all those amazing children who achieved some fantastic swim distances. Sorry I didn’t get a photo of everyone. So proud of you all. Gary. Xx


Hi Parents.
We are coming towards the end of this term but want to add another optional session for those wanting to improve on their distances. This will be for all groups and will be aimed at children who have already achieved 100m and above.
My intention will be to run this on Tuesday November 26th 4.45 - 5.45 and will cost £10 per child to cover the cost of the pool for 1 hour. Could you please add a comment if this is of interest to you. Thanks. Gary.


Here is my great team of teachers and helpers and a warm welcome to our new helper Izzy.

[09/30/19]   Hi Parents.
Just a reminder that swimming tomorrow will start at the new time of 4.45pm and the second session starts at 5.15pm.
Many thanks. Gary.

[09/27/19]   Well done everyone tonight at Gary Solly Swim School progress and hard work was excellent.
A black coat was left behind in the viewing room, so I have brought it home. If it yours please don't panic but Facebook me or call me on 07891842501. Thanks again.

[09/24/19]   Swimming Tuesdays ONLY Usual start time of 5pm this week We will change next week 1st October to start at 4.45 and the second session at 5.15. See you all later. Gary.
