Strokes Swim School - Children's Swimming Lessons in Essex

Terms and Conditions

  • We need to know as soon as possible if your place will not be required for the following term to avoid charging you for an unwanted place.
  • Fees for the next term are due before the end of the existing term to hold your place.
  • If fees are not paid by the due date on enrolment form you will incur an admin charge of £5.
  • We are sympathetic to hardship cases and those with large families, but we do need to be told if payments are going to be late.
  • Fees are non refundable, but transferable. If illness or extenuating circumstances keep you from swimming for more than 4 weeks, a part refund may be given as long as Diane is aware of the situation.

If any swims are cancelled due to school closures, we may choose to hold the catch-up lesson in the school holidays or at the end of the term. We do not offer refunds. This is the discretion of Strokes Swim School.
