Swimming Lessons

Anaconda Swim School provides swimming lessons for children from the age of four at the following pools – Caledonian Road Pool, Beacon High (Holloway) School Pool, Highbury Grove School Pool and Golden Lane Pool on a variety of days and times. The location of the pools are listed HERE.

Lessons are 30 minutes long and run in groups; the first group will be for beginners, the next for those who can swim a little and so on with the swimmer moving up the groups on an individual basis until they reach the top group. At this stage they are may be offered an assessment and if they are successful will be invited to join a junior swim squad.

All our swim teachers are fully qualified to the standards laid down by Swim England, as well as DBS checked with a commitment to safeguarding all children in their care. Almost all of our teachers have progressed from Anaconda Swimming Club, so have a good insight into the needs of swimmers.

On receipt of your email you will then either be:

  • Offered a day and time for an assessment, or
  • Placed on our waiting list if all our sessions are full and we will contact you when a space becomes available.

As our sessions take place at three pools, do let us know if you have a preference and we will try to accommodate it, whenever possible.

After your childs' assessment you receive an email confirming their place and details on how to register them and set up your payments, on the On Deck/Go Motion system. You must register and pay for your membership and first month’s fees before beginning lessons.

Fees for Swimming Lessons

All fees are charged as a monthly subscription and not on a session basis, so some months you will have five weeks of lessons and others four. We have calculated fees on the basis of delivering a minimum of 42 sessions, with payments split into 11 even months (there is no charge for August as the Club is closed). Lessons continue during school half term holidays. Refunds will be paid at the end of the year for closures, cancelled sessions or if we have not delivered the minimum of 42 lessons.

Our current fees are:

1 lesson per week –  £45 per month
2 lessons per week –  £70 per month
