Puddle Ducks Bristol & Bath

I am the proud owner of the swim school, Puddle Ducks Bristol & Bath. We teach babies, toddlers and children (from newborn to 10 years) water confidence, water safety and how to swim beautifully.

A bit about me...

Hello!  I'm Sarah and I am the founder of the baby, toddler and child swimming franchise, Puddle Ducks Bristol & Bath. 

My background is marketing - I've worked both inhouse (British Aerospace, UWE, Chartered Institute of Marketing and Cheltenham & Gloucester Building Society) and Agency side where my clients included Vodafone, Toni and Guy, French Connection and Kia Cars.

In 2003 my son Sam was born and I took him to baby swimming lessons.  I loved it so much I decided to retrain to become a swimming teacher, and not long after purchased the Bristol & Bath Puddle Ducks franchise territory.

I live in Bristol with my husband John, son Sam and my cats Shadow and Silver.  John runs marketing recruitment agency Henry Nicholas Associates Ltd based in Queens Square.

I love to travel and started practicing yoga in 2018 so feel very lucky to have been able to travel India for the past two years with a yoga retreat at the end of my trips. Bliss.
