Carrie

Swim School Owner & Founder

Our Founder

Our founder, Carrie, has been a water lover forever, starting as a water helper back in 2000. She earned her stripes with her ASA Level 1 Teaching Aquatics qualification and didn't rest until she also bagged her ASA Level 2. Alongside this, she completed her RLSS National Rescue Award for Swimming Teachers & Coaches. And just like that, her teaching career set sail. At the start of 2024, Carrie was shortlisted for Female Entrepreneur at the Thames Valley Business & Community Awards.

Before starting Waves, Carrie had successfully steered the ship at Sandhurst Swim School for 5 years. In 2020, these two fabulous swim schools decided to become one big happy family under the name Waves Swim & Fitness. And that's how we got here - teaching, learning, and making a splash every day!

Carrie is also an RLSS Trainer Assessor, so we're able to offer RLSS National Pool Lifeguard, RLSS National Rescue Award for Swimming Teachers & Coaches, and RLSS Emergency Pool Responder courses... as well as ongoing training for lifeguards and swimming teachers.

Meet The Team

Carrie isn't sailing the Waves ship alone! She's got Emily by her side, helping with the daily hustle and bustle of our swim school. Emily's quite the superstar herself - she's an STA Level 2 Swimming Teacher, a certified RLSS National Pool Lifeguard, and even has a special qualification for teaching our tiniest swimmers in the STA Baby & Pre-School program. Not to mention, she's also completed WaterPhobia training.

Our awesome team doesn't stop there though! We're a family of over 40 dedicated individuals, ranging from session supervisors, teachers, and assistant teachers to lifeguards, water helpers, friendly receptionists and the office team. Each one plays a vital part in making Waves the fun and safe swimming environment it is.
