Children's swimming lessons

swim school | nene centre

At Nene we follow the world renowned 'Learn to Swim' programme which is used in over 1,000 swimming programmes in the UK and internationally. It has already taught millions of children to swim. It continues to be by far the most successful grass-roots programme in British sport.

It is our policy to ensure that all our lessons are enjoyable, interesting and above all we aim for the highest standards of water confidence, water skills and swimming techniques.

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 mostly follow continuous assessment which means swimmers progress at their own pace and move class once the assessment criteria has been achieved.
