Hi I'm Sue, I own and actively manage Octanauts Swim School

I have been involved in teaching swimming for close to 25 years, it is my passion that every child and adult should learn to swim, share a love for the water.

My early years were spent assisting beginners at a local swimming club prior to gaining formal qualifications in 1999.

I am also an experienced Tutor of Swimming Teachers and National Tutor for the Royal Life Saving Society.

Over the last 10 years I have developed swimmers, lifeguards and teachers internationally.
