Terms & Conditions.

Booking and Payment

Lessons are booked on a termly basis and until the last lesson of the term. If lessons are started once the term has begun, fees will be charged on a ‘pro rata’ basis. We are unable to facilitate ‘part term’ bookings where your request is to end the term early. Bookings are not confirmed until payment has been received. You will always be provided with a confirmation of you're booking via email. 

Cancellation /Refunds

We have a strict no refund policy except in extenuating circumstances considered on a case by case basis such as broken limbs/operations. Missed lessons are not possible to credit. 

In the unusual event of a pool closure we will make every attempt to contact our customers as soon as possible. A credit note will be given in lieu of future payment for the following term. In the instance where a pupil is not returning to our classes for a further term, a refund for cancelled lesson will be given.

Private lessons can be cancelled if 24 hours’ notice is given. If less than 24 hours’ full payment is still required. If a replacement lesson can be organised you will be notified & will not be charged.


BACS fees are a one-off payment - to be paid in full. Direct debit payments are taken 3 times during a term – one before the start of the term & 2 the following months.

Parents / Guardian Responsibility

A parent/carer must remain on site for the duration of the lesson and must supervise children always inside and outside the pool building and parking areas. 

Change of details

You must inform us of any change in address, contact details, swimmer’s health or condition and if there is a change of Guardian / Carer details.
