FAQs

What are your poolside procedures?

Don’t swim or attend a venue to bring a swimmer if you are unwell, have a temperature or other possible symptoms of an infectious condition.

Come swim ready changing rooms are only available after lessons.

Bring own equipment (googles, swim hat, float, armbands etc). Children to arrive wearing inflated armbands unless they have achieved their 25m distance badge. Your equipment stays your responsibility at all times.

All poolside areas are spectator free to maintain the safety of our swimmers and teachers. We encourage distraction-free, low-noise environments conducive to learning.

Each venue has its own recommendations for where parents can wait while their child’s lesson is in progress. Please ask at your pool for details.

Parents of new swimmers or special needs children can speak to the pool coordinator if additional support is needed to settle a child for their first lesson.

For children under 3 you will be in the water with them (1 parent only).
Children aged 3 – 5 in Coral preschool lessons wear armbands. Instructors take over their care from parents at poolside, and go into the water with the children, helping them learn.
Children aged 5+ If not yet swimming 25m confidently will use armbands for safety reasons. Instructors ensure swimmers are strong and confident with their strokes before armbands are removed. Instructors stay with the children in the water until this is achieved.

There will be someone at every venue for you to talk to.

Although we do enjoy seeing our swimmers progress along their complete Swimstylers journey you are free to leave the swim school at any time. However, in all cases (including illness and holidays) we do not offer refunds or credits in the event of this happening as the payment made secures the place for the full term.

How do I renew my lessons?

Our lessons typically follow school term dates and you will be emailed with next term’s renewal information. Spaces are limited due to our small class sizes, so lessons are booked on a first-come-first-served basis. We are not able to secure spaces without full payment.

Current term and important renewal information are sent to you via email. We have had reports of our emails unfortunately going into spam boxes. To avoid this please ‘add’ our email address to your address book to ensure you receive our important messages. Read more on our Privacy Policy.

  • 1. Does my child have to learn in armbands?

    We really value armbands as a key teaching aid for our toddlers and young learners until they complete our Oceana improver level. Armbands are so great for helping children stay relaxed in the water while they learn how to keep the right body position. Read more about our teaching style for babies and the role of armbands in a recent blog post.

  • 2. Can we join your lessons half way through a term?

    You are welcome to join us once a term has begun. You will be charged only for the remaining amount of lessons. Due to the repetition of our weekly lesson plans it means that you will not miss out on anything!
