learn to swim near York

Class Schedule

Terms run from between 11 to 14 weeks

Classes are  £14.80 (£41.93 per month) for a 30 minute lesson. Only 7 children in the pool and only one class running at a time. All the children are treated individually, we have great fun, develop water confidence and learn to swim.

Terms vary from 11-14 weeks, totalling 34 weeks a year.

We run monthly subscriptions which I hope will help both your budgeting and my cashflow. It will also mean that if lessons are cancelled we have more flexibility.

Every term an an STA Skill Award Certificate and woven badge is available for £3.50 and Distance Awards from 5m onwards too

Cost breakdown:  £14.80 x 34 weeks (total of weeks over 3 terms) divided by 12 months (August 2023 – July 2024) = £41.93 per month.

A little more about Subscriptions

Once a lesson has been booked, your first monthly payment will be taken on the 1st of the following month.  If you book this week, your first monthly payment will be taken on 1st of the following month.

This will be easier to manage if we need to pop lessons on hold for any further lockdowns (hope those days are over now). I can pause all payments until we are back up and running again!
