Aquarius Swimming

Caterham • Warlingham • Oxted

Producing all-round swimmers


Years of experience

Founded in 1978, Aquarius is well regarded within the local community, and has received national awards for teaching from both Swim England and the Royal Life Saving Society.

Swimming restarted on 31 July

We’re excited to tell you we’re planning a return to swimming lessons!

We ran our very successful SUMMERTIME 20 swimming courses in August. Term will start as planned on 7 September.

Our teachers have completed the first stage of their retraining, ready for our return under the new rules and guidelines. The second retraining stage will take place as soon as swimming pools are available for in-pool teachers’ sessions.

About us

Keep in the loop

Aquarius Swimming operates in the Tandridge area of Surrey, at venues in Caterham, Warlingham and Oxted.

Aquarius focuses on the development of the individual as an all-round swimmer. We encourage participation in nationally recognised programmes of awards and badges, enabling swimmers and their parents to track their progress.

Once basic swimming skills have been developed, we keep swimmers interested by introducing activities like water polo, early diving skills and life-saving, as well as swimming for fitness.

In addition, we are very pleased to be able to support the Tandridge Aquarius Swimming Squad (TASS).

We’re pleased to say that swimmers stay with Aquarius for many years. Most of our teachers learned to swim with us as children, and many former pupils bring their own children to us for lessons.

From January 2009 we adopted the Swim England National Plan for Teaching Swimming. Read our NPTS parental guide. In 2012 we adopted the RLSS Survive and Save Programme.

Towards our ‘new normal’ — a great teacher training session

As we work towards our 'new normal', we had a really great teacher training session on 29 July — thanks to wonderful support from our RLSS trainer assessors and teachers. We learned how to take lifesaving skills to a new level, how to approach the risks, and how to...

Still Water exams

Teachers Charlotte, Cathy and Kate took 22 swimmers to Southwater, West Sussex to join the Surrey RLSS in a day of swimming in the cold murky waters of the boating lakes. We very much admired the hard work and stoicism of our swimmers who despite the cold environment...

BEACH WEEKEND, Eastbourne, Summer 2018

We all really enjoyed our beach weekend at Eastbourne. Families stayed down booking into a local hotel so a genuinely social and hard working weekend was enjoyed by all who attended. Our swimmers Maria Alongi, Caris Carpenter, Alex Jones and Erin Mullins were Aquarius...

Just wanted to say thank you for all of the measures you are putting into place at Warlingham for swimming. It is really clearly set out and we feel very safe attending lessons. My two kids were a bit nervous about coming back to swimming. We are hoping that Moorhouse opens soon but until that point, Warlingham has been fab. Thanks as well for finding space for them so they could continue.


My boys love swimming with Aquarius! My oldest started as an absolute beginner, petrified of swimming, he’s doing lifesaving now. I highly recommend them. They’re brilliant.


Brilliant swimming club! Lisa is fantastic with my children, I highly recommend.


Thank you to you all, the standard of teaching is second to none and each and every individual involved in this club needs to be very proud of themselves.


So pleased with the persistence and patience of the teachers at Warlingham pool. My 6 year old has confidence in the water and enjoys going to class each week!


We just returned from our first class and it was absolutely fantastic! The children really enjoyed it, despite being very nervous to try somewhere new. I’d love to sign them up for the term.


As I have said, James’ swimming has improved so much in the last year, but more so his enjoyment which as much as anything has made it worth the while taking him. Thank you for this.


I just wanted to say how impressed I was with the teachers, they were so good with the children. In particular, Lisa was lovely with Robin while she was assessing if the classes would be suitable for him‎. Both boys would like to continue with the swimming lessons.


Jacob loved the lesson on Saturday so we’d love to come for the rest of the term.

Can I just say, we have been to a few different swim schools with varying standards however I found Aquarius to be really well run and it was so refreshing to have a higher ratio of staff to kids who were all attentive and engaged with the kids!


Just wanted to say thank you for all your help getting my girls on to the right lessons. They absolutely LOVE coming to Warlingham for their lessons so was exactly the right decision.

Just wanted to drop you a note to thank you for the holiday club that Liam and Josh have been attending at Oakhurst. They have thoroughly enjoyed every session, the coaches and your social distancing measures are outstanding! I would be very interested to continue their lessons in September.
