Our Little H2O Story

H2O Swimming Success was launched on the 1st March 2018. Originally the plan was to start a small business predominantly teaching private swimming lessons, this soon changed when H2O unexpectedly grew from 20 swimmers to 60 within 2 months and finally reaching 200 swimmers in July 2018. As a result of this welcome growth we gained 11 brilliant swimming teachers and continue to boost our staff numbers to accommodate growing cliental and between us teach swimmers from 6 weeks to 82 years old operating 7 days per week.

West Coventry Academy is our main base for swimming lessons, as well as teaching from Bablake Sports Centre on a Wednesday evening. We are also excited to announce that due to high demand for swimming lessons, we are currently in negotiations for new venues in the Midlands.

As well as running our popular swimming lessons, we also offer Pool Party Bonanzas, Family Swims, Adult Only Swim Sessions and our brand new Swim, Stay & Play for 5 years & under.

Meet Our Founder

HANNAH POWNERDirector & Head Swimming Teacher
My love for swimming started at a very early age of just 3 years old. At the age of 11, I joined the City of Coventry Swimming Club and from 14 started assisting with the Reception Achievers group within the club. I soon took on my first coaching squad at the age of 17 after qualifying as an Aquatic Swimming Teacher and gained my first teaching role for a local swim school, where I dedicated my time and passion to teaching babies through to adults from July 2011 to January 2018.

I have always shown great passion and dedication to all of my swimmers, so much so that in March 2018 I followed my dream of setting up my very own swim school. I am now very proud to be able to say that we have a team of 16 dedicated, loyal and fully qualified swimming teachers, 6 of which I myself coached during their time at the City of Coventry Swimming Club.

My vision for H2O is to build a family unit, ensuring each swimmer that joins us will enjoy and share their experience with others, enhance their abilities, grow as individuals and understand the importance of a life skill.

Meet the Team


Hannah has such patience. She has worked hard with my son to improve his swimming technique and to help him to become a confident swimmer. Really appreciate all your time and patience, Hannah.

Elliott and Harley have both gained so much confidence. Elliott is now off his belt so proud.

My 5 year old daughter has been having swimming lessons with Hannah since April. Not only has her swimming improved tremendously but her confidence in the water and in herself has grown so much too. The instructors are amazing, the patience and knowledge they show reflects in the improvements shown by all the children they teach. Many thanks to Hannah and her team for all their hard work. Highly, highly recommend these classes to anyone looking for a swimming class for their children.

HUGE THANK YOU to Hannah & Ellie!!

Zachary is having the best holiday – he’s so confident with his swimming and that’s down to you! I honestly didn’t think a few months ago he would be going swimming in the sea going on water slides and jumping around in wave pools. he’s having the best time not having to worry about keep putting his band on.

Thank you!!!

I highly recommend H2O!!!

So happy we have moved my 9 year old daughter to Hannah’s swimming school. Within minutes, you could see immediate improvements in her strokes and understanding. She loves every second even happy to jump out of bed on a Sunday morning!!!

Can’t recommend Hannah highly enough. My daughter has grown in confidence in just a few weeks from being terrified to actually enjoying being in the water. Hair washing isn’t quite such an ordeal now either! Thank you Hannah, you are a natural!

Hannah has taught Louis for a few years now. Hannah built up a relationship of trust which is key, she is a fantastic swimming instructor we wouldn’t go any where else.

My son first started having one to one sessions with Hannah and now does group sessions. He has massively improved from not being able to swim to now being able to move in the water confidently. Hannah has really helped him build his confidence by being patient with him and giving him the push he needs and he enjoys the lessons every week! I would recommend Hannah/ H2O Swimming Success to anyone who requires swimming lessons for their child with a caring teacher.

It is such a brilliant swim school with fantastic teachers. My children have really improved and grown in confidence with expert tuition.

My little boy has been having lessons for a couple of months now and his confidence has grown and grown, Hannah and her team are fab with him and really take their time with him.

Wow what can I say… Hannah and her team have been exceptional especially Ellie.
Sienna has come on leaps and bounds with her swimming and we are very proud for her to continue.
I am spreading the word to parents at school for new recruits.
Keep up the amazing work you do!

Fantastic swim school. I’m so pleased with the progress in my son he’s now swimming on his own. He previously attended a diff swim school I feel that I chucked money away as he didn’t seem to improve. The girls are brilliant so kind and friendly. Can’t wait to celebrate my son’s birthday with them all at their first H2O Pool Party.

My daughter has been swimming with Hannah for over a year now and has improved with confidence and ability. I would recommend Ho2 highly.

My daughter loved receiving her badge and certificate at the presentation yesterday. It’s so lovely that her achievements were recognised. She loved the bouncy castle and face painting too! Thank you.

My 3 year old granddaughter has been with H2O for several months. Not the easiest of age groups to teach but Ellie has a real way with her. Thank you to Hannah and your team for your patience with the children. I have seen such a progress with our little one.

Fantastic party… Sienna and her friends had a great time, truly a success, “it was the best party ever” quoted some of the children!! Well done for all your hard work xxx

Can I say thank you so much! Carly never really had any experience with water when we started and she loves it now and is a proper water baby.
Macy was petrified of water that was higher than her waist and used to panic whenever it splashed her face, so to see her swim lengths of the pool with only a belt on while laughing at her face getting wet after only a couple of months just amazes me! Thank you!

Erin was in the pool constantly on holiday and whilst she had her back float on she was just so independent and confident. Definitely down to the hard work of H2O!!

Great feedback, well done to Ellie for helping Erin gain her confidence & enable her to have a fab time on holiday! Can’t wait to see the progress.

I think he’s doing well with your swimming group they have been great with Harley and Elliott you should be proud. Harley has so much confidence in the pool.

Wanted to let you know that I think Jade is an absolute asset to your company, she’s confident, friendly, helpful, and absolute great with the children.

My son absolutely loved his first lesson I’ve never seen him so excited, the girls were brilliant with him.
