Our Staff

Lucy Ryan, Manager,Owner, Teacher

Our Swimming Pool is a hive of activity and we welcome around 100 people on a daily basis. 

If I am not poolside teaching the tiny ones to swim, on the computer balancing the books, or answering enquiries, I can be found racing at swimming competitions. I'm currently ranked second in the World for my age group in Breaststroke.

Swimming has been a passion throughout my life and I am so proud to share this confidence, and the resources needed, with the community. Families, partners, friends, strengthen bonds, feel good and strong, leave relaxed and fulfilled with a sense of achievement and a real life skill.

Grange Farm Swimming School has gone from strength to strength since being purpose built over 10 years ago. Our success stories run from popular baby and toddler classes, pre-schoolers often swimming unaided from 3 years old, children and adults of all ages developing their swimming ability and confidence in water.

Jessica Jeffries

Jessica Jeffries Swim Teacher

Known mostly as mum of Layla and Ariana my name is Jess and I'm a Level 2 swimming teacher here at Grange Farm.

As an ex-competitive swimmer for the Wisbech Swimming Club I cannot wait to share the knowledge and experience I have gained introducing everyone into the wonderful world of aquatics, starting with the tiny tots at Ducklings and specialising in teaching beginner children to learn to swim while making it as fun as possible.

Swimming has been my passion for as long as I can remember and now being able to teach is fantastic, watching each individual grow and succeed being amazed by the strength they show every time  they complete something new and being just as proud as they are.

When I’m not working you’ll probably still find me in the water with my own family, making up games and singing songs.

Kathy Whitby

Kathy is our fantastic lead Aqua Fit Instructor.

She brings enthusiasm, passion, and music to every class.

She is genuinely concerned about each and every person who attends her classes, and always striving to improve the classes she offers. 
There is a passionate following for Kathy's Aqua Fit classes (and her online Back Care and Pilates classes too). We currently offer 7 classes a week - but you had better be quick because some of her devoted followers attend every single one!)

Gaby Williams

Gaby says she has always been a water baby. She has been helping out with teaching swimming since she was 14, and was a National Level Competitive Swimmer. 
In her heart she is a big kid and she loves to make her lessons fun.

She recently confessed to a client that she hadn't realised how much she had missed swimming teaching (while having her children who are now 2 and 4yrs old), until she returned to the water to teach with us in the last few months. 

Initially Gaby joined us as a cover teacher, but now she has joined our permanent team. 

Gaby is a Level 1 & 2 Aquatics Teacher.
