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. 

Hi I'm Nichola, known to most as Nic.

I teach at Tiverton Monday and Wednesday, Riverbank Tuesday and Thursday, Cardinal Wiseman on Fridays. I also teach at Riverbank on Saturdays for the SEND sessions.

As well as being a swim teacher I'm a mermaid instructor.

I'm passionate about my role and get great pleasure from teaching.

I'm a mum of 3 and enjoy spending my spare time with my family.


Hi I'm Ria,

I teach at King Henry's prep on Thursday and at Riverbank on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.

As well as a teacher I am also an Aquabatix instructor.

I am passionate about my job and love to see everyone gaining confidence in the water and progressing through the stages.

Water safety is a very important life skill that I feel everyone should learn.

I am a mum to 4 daughters so in my spare time I love to spend time with my family having fun.
