Junior Swimming

Our positive and friendly approach which combined with guaranteed small classes is getting great results for the children we teach. We have a maximum of 6 to a class with a teacher and teaching assistant for our beginner classes, once children move to our improver classes the ratio is 8:2.

All Instructors are fully qualified and experienced and hold the relevant ASA or STA certificate(s). Tuition is always ‘hands on’ as Instructors are in the water with the children, until they reach coaching levels. The Instructor to swimmer ratio is very high, ensuring your child will receive above average attention and tuition.

ABC Juniors starts with those children who have graduated from either our ABC Baby classes or other schools from around the age of 3yrs and as we grow we will introduce more types and styles of classes for children and adults. One being the Rookie lifeguard programme which starts for children aged 8 and above to adult improver classes for those who want to swim themselves fit.

Private one-to-one tuition may be available for children that are perhaps too nervous, struggling on a particular stroke or simply wants dedicated attention.

Small group and individual adult classes are also run at request.

Costs and payment

Set Courses

Our classes are run in courses of between 10 – 15 weeks depending upon the length of the school term, we always take a break for Christmas, Easter, Summer and the half term holidays. Occasionally some classes may run during the summer term or we may run intensive classes over the course of one or two weeks. Each class is half an hour in length but allow an hour for your lesson in order to give yourself time to change before and after your class.

Each course is payable in advance and your place is secured with a 50% deposit with the remainder being paid during the first week of term, you may of course pay the full term fees in one payment. If you have siblings then you can also pay for your course in two or three instalments.


A re-enrolment letter is sent out within 4 weeks of the end of your current course providing you with the details on dates and fees for the upcoming course. Your place is secure for the following term once you start attending classes no need to go on a waiting list again but you will need to pay your deposit for the new course by the deadline given in your re-enrolment letter.

Private classes

If you have use of a family swimming pool then we can often run private classes for either yourself on a one to one basis or with others that you would like to join you. These would be half hour classes and the fee would be between £15.00-£25.00 per person depending upon location.


Set Courses

If you have more than one child attending ABC then second child will receive a 10% discount on the cost of the course. So your first child will pay full price but all further children will receive the discount.
