Private Lessons

We often get asked for private swimming lessons. The reason for parents choosing private tuition for their children can be varied, although mostly it is to improve a child’s confidence or to work on a particular stroke. You may also find a private lesson (or a course of them) useful prior to going on holiday or to the child starting swimming at school.

Whatever your objectives, each of our half hour long private classes is held by one of our fully qualified instructors who will tailor the class exactly to your child’s needs. The classes can be booked as one-off sessions and in Colchester only can also be booked as a course (to be taken over consecutive weeks), which represents a small saving over booking the classes individually.

Cost for private lessons

One child- £32 per lesson or £180 for a course of six
Two children (of the same ability)- £38 per lesson or £210 for a course of six


The availability at your preferred pool will depend on our current lesson schedule as well as your objectives and requirements, so we treat each enquiry on an individual basis.

We regret that we currently have no availability for private classes at our Chelmsford, Frinton, Dunmow or Lexden pools.

Private Group Lessons

Do you have a group of friends who all would like to swim together with little ones of the same age? You can book a group class where the only participants are you! Suitable for groups of up to 6 friends. Please note there must be one adult in the water per child. Cost is £500 for 10 weeks which works out at £50 per week. Available at all pools. Contact us for times.
