Private Swim School


A standard lesson is 30 minutes, they are booked in blocks based on the venue and length of the school term with a break in the middle for half term.

The rates per lessons are -

  • Small Group - £  7.00 per child
  • 2 children to 1 teacher - £16.00 per child
  • 1 child to 1 teacher - £22.00 per child

More advanced levels may have the option of a 1 hour lesson depending on availability, these are charged at £9.50 per lesson.

The majority of our lessons are small groups due to a large demand. We will wherever possible aim to provide an additional helper in our lower ability lessons to assist in stroke correction, offer guidance and provide support to any children with confidence issues.

Places are allocated to our existing customers first, then remaining spaces are offered to the waiting list. we feel this is the fairest way of operating classes. If a placement is not available on the day you require, you may be offered a temporary alternative placement until you can be moved to the day/time of your choice. Remember, once you are in Sealions you will have first priority to move to your desired day.

In addition to the weekly lessons which run in line with school terms, we also offer intensive courses during the school holidays. These are available over a one or two week period, generally with a lesson every weekday and can often help our new customers from the waiting list to being offered a full course placement.

Payment Terms

Our courses run in line with school terms so they can vary in length depending on the day and venue but they are usually between 11 and 14 weeks.

Full payment is required for the lessons in advance.

To make our lessons as affordable as possible to everyone, we will accept payment made in two equal instalments with the first one before lessons are due to start and the second payment made before the half term break of the current course.

These split payments must be requested and agreed with the proprietor in advance.

Please Note - Split payment options will be removed from anyone attempting to pay after a missed deadline and their place will then become vulnerable to being taken by another person waiting to start. The initial split payment will also be taken as a commitment to pay the remainder of the fees when they become due.

Your places are only guaranteed subject to payment being made by the due date so please pay promptly.
