Welcome to Hampton Swim School!
My name is Julia and I am the founder of the school. What I love about our swimming community is how, after more than 20 years, Hampton Swim School is still all about our families. We pride ourselves on a gentle, nurturing approach to learning where achievements, no matter how small, can be celebrated.
When I started our swim school, I was an international competitive swimmer with a passion for aquatic education. These days I am a local mum of three and more motivated than ever to give children in our community a lifelong love of water in the safest of hands. Every child is unique, and our programs will help your child develop the confidence and skills needed to be happy and safer in the water. We work with newborns, teens and everything in between from our two locations in Cannon Hill and Morningside. We also offer classes for adults.
My team of loyal and much-loved teachers and I are looking forward to meeting you!
While I was still representing Australia in the international world of swimming, Hampton Swim School was born out of my family’s pool in McConnell St, Bulimba in 1999. Outgrowing this 10m pool, the Pashen St Morningside pool became our Hampton Swim School’s new home in 2002.
In February 2020, Hampton’s expanded into another local pool in Stanton St, Cannon Hill, located on the grounds of the St Oliver Plunkett Catholic Primary School.
We are passionate about quality aquatic education and child safety. At Hampton Swim School we believe that learning to swim can contribute to saving your child’s life. That is why we developed the best baby swimming and learn to swim programs – developmentally and age appropriate. Swimmers move through our tailored 12-week programs, aimed at developing the ‘whole’ child and delivering consistent results.
Our philosophy is to ‘Nurture, Achieve & Celebrate’. Our progressive programs and engaged teachers will motivate your child to swim through our levels, and we are here to celebrate their achievements along the way as there is no greater feeling for us than seeing kids accomplish new skills.
Parents form a great part of our swim community and their child(ren)’s journey with us. We always love hearing their experiences and we will do everything we can to help them with their busy schedules, finding suitable class times and arrange for make-up classes. Parents can also follow their child(ren)’s progress through our easy to use online portal and app.
Our Hampton team are selected for their positive, fun and nurturing natures, and trained in our unique Hampton teaching philosophies and methods. We provide our team with ongoing weekly professional development and in-water support, to ensure every one of our teachers is passionate about essential water safety and life-skills and ensuring positive experiences for your child. Your kids are in the safest of hands at the Hampton Swimming School.
