Our Swim School Teachers



Hi my name is Kelly and I teach here at BreanSplash. My Dad introduced me to water at a very young age and I have been a water baby ever since. I love swimming myself and have competed at County Level and also for the Royal Navy.

I believe that swimming is one of the best skills you can give to a child, it is the only sport that could save your life and that of others. I sit on the Somerset ASA Committee and I have the pleasure of being the current Somerset ASA President.


I also organise and run Somerset County Swimming Championships and Developmental galas as well as being the Burnham-on-Sea Swimming Club Secretary.


I started teaching in 1991 when I passed my Preliminary Teachers Award and qualified as a Level 2 Teacher in 2005. I teach absolute beginners all the way through to advanced levels and get real satisfaction from seeing weekly progress of swimmers in my lessons.


The facilities here at BreanSplash are amongst the best I have taught in and coupled with CoursePro, where you can track your swimmers' progress, the support and communication is also excellent.



Mike is a qualified Swim England Level 2 Swimming Teacher, as well as an STA swim teacher, with the additional qualification as an RLSS National Rescue Award for Swimming Teachers and Coaches, for the safe supervision of pool based programmed aquatic activities.

He is also qualified as a Swim England Water Polo Teacher and Coach, and he has over 40 years’ experience of teaching and coaching aquatics at all levels, up to internationally. A Life Member of Weston-super-Mare Swimming Club, and the Chief Coach of Water Polo within the club.

He has been President of both Somerset County ASA and Swim England South West Region, and is also secretary for water polo of both Somerset County and Swim England South West Region, and is also Match Secretary of the Bristol & West Water Polo League.

Over the years he has attended many Swim England CPD courses for aquatics. His main aim is to ensure everyone learns to swim, from youngsters and adults. No one is too old to learn to swim or improve their skills.
