Olivia: Academy Founder






My passion for swimming started at a young age when I competed for a local swimming club. This experience influenced my desire to pass on my knowledge and enjoyment of the sport. In 2017 with at least 10 years experience of teaching I knew I was ready to set up my own swimming academy. l have experience in teaching all levels of swimming from beginners to competitive and children to adults. As well as setting up Whitings Swimming Academy I also am the Senior Swimming Teacher for Whitings Hill Primary School and Pool Lettings Manager.


All our swimming teachers are ASA (Amateur Swimming Association) or STA (Swimming Teachers Association) qualified with a current DBS check.



Debbie has been working with Whitings Swimming Academy from the beginning and is our poolside helper and welfare officer. She loves working with children having had two daughters, a grandson and two granddaughters! In her spare time Debbie enjoys running and pilates.


All teachers at Whitings Swimming Academy are ASA or STA qualified. They follow the Wavepower 2020 - 2023 Child safeguarding policy and procedures for clubs and all have a DBS check.
