Where learning to swim is safe and fun



S.O.S. Swim School, its owners, partners and employees shall under no circumstances be held liable for any accident or similar event or the consequences thereof, occurring on the premises or any other premises used for the purpose of swimming or training, and all persons attending these classes do so at their own risk.

No liability will be accepted for the loss of or damage to property belonging to participants or spectators whilst on S.O.S. Swim School premises or any other premises used for the purpose of swimming lessons.

Our fees for children’s lessons start at £5.90 per lesson, payable termly in advance. The preferred method of payment is by BACS, however we also run a monthly direct debit scheme via a company called Go Cardless, or you can pay via cash/cheque.


Enroling on a course is your commitment to pay the fees. Any late fees will be subject to a surcharge of £10. No refunds or allowances can be given due to absence, holidays or sickness, instead we can offer a “make up lesson” where a choice of classes will be offered to allow your child to make up for the missed lessons. Please note this is subject to availability of spaces.

The written Pool Rules of S.O.S. Swim School will be abided by. Any person not complying with these rules and regulations will be asked to leave the premises.

We only run our lessons during term time. Refunds or make up lessons will be offered in the case of the pool being unavailable for us to use for any reason.

The address given by yourselves will be taken to be the Domiciled address. Any changes are to be in writing. Please note that we do store your details on our systems however these are not viewable by any third parties and we will not pass your details on to anybody outside of the swim school.

S.O.S. Swim School reserves the right to change or cancel a course at any time. Arrangements will be made to reschedule where possible.

Participants must declare any factors or information, notably of a medical nature, at time of booking.

On enrolment of a course of lessons and by payment of the fees due, pupils and their parents/gaurdians are agreeing to the S.O.S Swim School’s Terms and Conditions and Pool Rules. Please note from time to time these are updated as necessary and are available to inspect at the pool side. If you would like a printed copy of the Rules or Ts&Cs please just ask.
