Welcome to Robins Garth.
Swimming lessons at Small Dole, Henfield, West Sussex.

Robins Garth has been a wonderful location for swimming lessons in Small Dole, West Sussex since 2009. At the foot of the Southdowns, with views across to Bramber Castle and the river Adur, on the edge of the stunning Southdowns National Park.

Our pool has proved itself to be the most successful, privately owned in the area. We hire our facilities to only the most prestigious swim schools, pushing the standards of coaching. If you choose one of the companies listed in our Partners page, you can be sure your child will receive an excellent level of tuition.

We have lots of toddlers and preschool children attending lessons. They love the toys, games and the animals that are often seen wandering around. All children are made to feel welcome, making them comfortable in the environment. Many come with their friends and classmates from our local village schools in Henfield, Steyning, Ashurst, Storrington and Horsham.

The first experience in a swimming pool should be a pleasant, positive and relaxed one. We have even had babies drift off to sleep whilst floating through the starry tunnel. Baby swimming has been proven to aid your babies sleeping and feeding patterns. It also, on a really positive note, tires them out!

The pool was recently renovated, with swimming lessons and pool hire in mind. Things such as parking and changing rooms were all carefully planned to ensure the best use of space. Set in the countryside, its a beautiful, relaxed location for parents to bring their baby to learn to swim.

As parents, we encourage our children to try many activities. Being so close to the sea and river a lot do watersports, such as sailing and surfing. So we take water safety very seriously. To this end, only the best swimming companies West Sussex has to offer are invited to join us:

Love For Swimming

Lessons for babies and toddlers use a fun approach to swimming to allow children to gain confidence in the water. Using a combination of songs, games and floats they learn to swim whilst having the support of their parents in the water. Their preschool lessons allow children aged 3 and 4 who are happy and confident in the water to have a more structured lesson. These classes are without parents in the pool so are aimed at children with some previous experience. They also cater for children who are aged 4+. They have classes for children with little or no experience in the water and have progressive classes up to advanced swimmers.
