The majority of lessons are conducted over short distances allowing each pupil to develop a good level of stroke technique while building swimming stamina.  Freedom Leisure Swimming Teachers follow continuous assessment which means swimmers progress at their own pace and move class once the assessment criteria has been achieved. Please check at the centre to ensure the required stage is available.


The Swim England awards support the Learn to Swim Pathway by rewarding achievement. The certificates and badges have been designed to encourage children to learn the core skills of each individual award stage, as well as ensuring that they have fun in aquatic sport.
