Meet Helen & Angela - WOW Swimming's passionate owners

Helen has been a qualified swimming instructor for over a decade. She first met Angela when she started to teach her children to swim - something Angela saw as an important step in their lives. Years later, after being made redundant as a criminal defence lawyer, Angela sought Helen's advice in becoming a swimming instructor and soon they decided to "take the plunge", going in to business together to set up WOW Swimming.

They are both Level 2 ASA qualified swimming teachers, offering classes in 3 pools across Newcastle-under-Lyme and Stoke-on-Trent, teaching children an important life skill in a fun and nurturing environment.

All teachers hold either a lifeguard qualification (NPLQ) or the teacher water rescue certificate.

The maximum ratio we have in the pool is 1 teacher to 5 children, ensuring pupils get all the attention they need for safe and productive lessons.
