We are affiliated to Swim England (formerly the ASA) and use their nationally recognised Learn-to-Swim Pathway and awards system.

Children are assessed during lessons and, towards the end of each term (where applicable), awards are given based upon their level of achievement.

Awards, consisting of a certificate and sew-on badge, may be purchased at a cost of £3.75, but are not obligatory.


Here are the awards we use.


Each one links to more information on the Swim England website...
