What to expect in your lessons

We work hard to make sure that our lessons are fun, engaging, and challenging for each and every one of our swimmers. There are core skills that we work on throughout your time with us. Ultimately, our aim is to create confident and competent swimmers, and develop a child's love and respect of the water.

Our stages

While with SwimNE, your child will work through stages 1-10, collecting various badges and certificates along the way. Our stages are based on Swim England's 'learn to swim pathway'. Starting with the basics of learning to swim, and ending with advanced skills included in aquatic sports such as water polo or competitive swimming, our all-inclusive programme builds confidence and competency in all our swimmers.

Badges & certificates

During their time with SwimNE, you can expect your child to collect a range of 'well done', distance, and stage awards. We assess our swimmers throughout the year, and award badges and certificates at the end of each major term.

Tracking your child's progress

There are core skills that we work on in all stages of our learn to swim programme, and the learning outcomes evolve as your child becomes more confident and competent in the water. We regularly assess and closely monitor your child's progress in the water. We also give you access to tools so that you can do the same.
