Costs and Refunds

    As a not-for-profit club, we keep our prices as low as possible to cover the cost of providing the lessons but ensuring they are of an exceptional quality.


    These costs are for group sizes as shown below:

    For Children – 

    • From foundation stage, through intermediates and some advanced groups: MAXIMUM 2 children per group;
    • Last stage of Advanced (Lane Swimmers); and squads; maximum 3 per lane

    For Adults

    • Beginners – maximum 6 adults in the entire pool;
    • Intermediate, Advanced and Squads: max 3 swimmers per lane; maximum 9 adults in the entire pool

    Cost of Holiday courses :

    • £150 per week for One 2 One lessons;
    • £100 per week for One 2 Two lessons;

    Cost of Term-time lessons :

    • £240 per 12 week term;

    The prices above are for a normal 12 week term. Prices can vary depending on Bank Holidays and school holidays and prices are adjusted accordingly.


    • Payments are non-refundable. However if your circumstances change, please call the office as we hold a swap list and may be able to arrange a swap or someone on the waiting list may be able to take your place.   If we can do that, we’ll refund all the lessons they take less a £15 admin fee.  Please remember this is offered as a gesture of goodwill and not a contractual obligation.  If we cannot arrange this and you are unable to take up your slot for any reason, you will forfeit your termly fees.
    • Should we have to cancel a lesson for any reason, including local lock-downs due to coronavirus, another will be arranged within the London Borough of Richmond school dates, on the same day and time. Occasionally this may be at a different venue but will be within reasonable travelling distance. Refunds will be only be given if we cannot reschedule the lesson within the same term – we do not expect you to have to carry forward credits.
    • Any scheduled changes to lessons will be sent with your rebooking form and confirmation email so you can decide before you pay for the term if you would prefer to switch your day of swimming or perhaps venue.  No refunds can be given if you decide to take the block of lessons but cannot make the change.  An example of a scheduled change would be:
      • For a school open day: St Catherine’s has at least one of these on Saturdays each term and lessons are transferred to Sundays for these occasions.
      • For a special ‘one off’ event: for example a school’s centenary celebration on a Monday night.  These lessons may be rescheduled to have an extra lesson at the end of the term.
