Special Needs Classes

The Flipper Club has one of the few swimming instructors in South East England qualified to teach people with disabilities and special needs.

Because Brooklands School is a school for children with severe or profound and multiple learning difficulties, the changing facilities, access to the pool and water temperature have been especially adapted for their needs.

All age groups are welcome - from babies through to adults. Special needs classes are tailored to the individual's needs and focused on what is achievable and on building from this very positive approach.

The benefits of swimming include improved strength and flexibility, enhanced muscular stamina, stronger cardio-vascular system and social skills. Our main aim is to build confidence and provide an environment where the pupil can feel independent through free movement in the water, which may not be achievable outside of the pool.

Through empathy, enthusiasm and understanding each individual we gain trust, creating an atmosphere that is relaxed and positive, promoting a feeling of well being, fun and enjoyment.
