Cindy's Swim School

Posted on: 27 Aug 2019

We are delighted to announce that Van Gogh Primary School will be partnering with Cindy’s Swim School to offer more swimming lessons to the community.

The swimming pool at our Mostyn Site will continue to be used for national curriculum school-taught swimming lessons.  Cindy’s Swim School will make use of the time around this that the pool is empty, to offer extra-curricular swimming lessons for babies, toddlers and children.

The pool is a great space for learning to swim.  It’s a bright and confidence giving environment which will be a valuable amenity for anyone living in Oval, Kennington, Stockwell, Clapham, Brixton, Herne Hill, Vauxhall or beyond.

Swimming is a key life skill and this initiative is a great example of the benefit of a school space being maximised for the local and wider community. Revenue from the hire of the pool will also be fed back to benefit further school initiatives.

All enquiries about the extra-curricular swimming courses should be directed to Cindy’s Swim School. Their contact details are 02080046545 and  

To celebrate the opening and the partnership with the school, Cindy’s Swim School are offering all pupils at the school a 15% discount on any course they book with them taking place in 2019.  Simply quote VANGOGH2019 when submitting the booking form online at

Term time classes – booked as a term “block” of lessons.  Running in the Autumn term September to December with a break for half term.  These classes follow the ASA swimming learning progression and also include elements of water safety and lifesaving skills leading to further accreditation. More about these classes and Cindy’s Swim School can be found by looking at information about their baby, toddler and children’s class specifics

Van Gogh Primary School and Cindy’s Swim School are both very excited to be able to progress this partnership and to enhance local swimming opportunities available in the area.
