Angel Swim London Terms and Conditions

Trial

When you first attend lessons at Angel Swim London and decide to commit to the full term, your trial will be included in the price, this is to cover the cost of our teachers and facilities. If for some reason you are not satisfied, you will not be charged for your trial. 

Booking

At Angel Swim London we will endeavour to find a day and time that suits you best. When you book you will receive a confirmation email stating the date and time of your first lesson.

Re-booking

4 weeks before the end of term you will be contacted by one of our team with information regarding the next term. If you fail to make payment 1 week before the end of term your child’s place will be offered to someone else unless special arrangements have been made and confirmed via email by Angel Swim London.

Cancellations, Credit Notes and Refunds

If you paid for a term of lessons and are unable to attend due to medical grounds you will be credited the number of lessons remaining for the next term on the basis that you provide a doctors note via email.

Make-up Lessons Policy

At Angel Swim London we offer 3 make up classes per term as we understand the unpredictability that parenting can bring. We cannot refund you for a make-up lesson, however we can credit it to your account to use within 3 months. 

Refunds/Credits for Withdrawal on Medical Grounds

If you contact us stating you cannot attend under 24 hours before your lesson commences you will be charged for the lesson.

Letting us know you will miss your lesson(s)

In order to arrange a make-up class we first require at least 24 hours notice prior to your scheduled lesson commencing via email. One of our team will do our best to find a class of a suitable level and at the desired time. **Please note we have limited availability and pool time therefore the more notice we have, the more likely we will be able to schedule a make-up class to suit you.

Illness

Never come to your swimming lesson if you and/or your child have any illness, such as, but not limited to: chest infection, conjunctivitis, measles, impetigo, ear infections, asthma or a heavy cold (first days of the cold). Please DO NOT come to your swimming lesson until the symptoms have cleared at least 48 hours prior to your swimming lesson or when your doctor has given the all-clear.

If your child has just a running nose but feels happy and active you will be able to come to your swimming lesson unless your GP has advised you otherwise. Under no circumstances must anyone suffering from diarrhoea or vomiting attend swimming during illness and up to 2 weeks after full recovery and stools have returned to normal. If you are concerned about any medical condition, we ask that you always check with your GP before coming to any lessons.
