Welcome to Flippers Swim School, where individual attention means great progress.

We are a small independant swim school that cares for our swimmers.


Lesson structure and Prices per term:


Fees are calculated per term, with an option to pay monthly - based on 1 lesson per week.


You choose a timeslot to attend every week at that time.


During the term break we run a 5 day crash course as a booster or to refresh swim skills. This is not part of the term fees and is booked separately.


If you cannot commit to a term you pay the per lesson rate.If term fees are paid in advance you get a R100 discount!

If you join mid term you pay pro rata for the remaining weeks

Missed Lessons: Your fees for the term are payable regardless of whether you attend or not. (same as your gym membership) However, we do acknowledge the inconvenience of having to miss a lesson, and will allow 1 catch up lesson per term IF you cancel at least 24 hours before and not for bad weather (we’ve got you covered for this).

Catch up lessons will be in the last week of the term, where we have available slots, and with the teacher that is available.


Please ensure the Consent form is completed before lessons start.

Swimming caps must be worn by all pupils, for hygiene reasons. We sell caps for R60


Goggles are optional. Ideally a swimmer should be confident without goggles, but it does ease the learning process. It is your choice, think about your preference.


Directions: we are at 8 Oxford Road, Observatory. You can park inside BUT DO NOT BLOCK THE DRIVEWAY. Allow space for others. The entrance is at the top of the driveway. There is a keypad to access entry.


Communication: WhatsApp is best 083 747 9196– we do not get a chance to listen to voice messages while teaching. If your teacher is busy with another swimmer, and you need to discuss something, please arrange a time after lessons. Please do not not chat during someone else’s lesson time. If you are having any problems since starting swimming lessons, please discuss this with us. We look forward to teaching you the incredible skill of swimming
