Swim England Learn to Swim

The Swim England Learn to Swim Programme is a world-leading syllabus to support children and adults to learn to swim.

It ensures swimming lessons for all ages meet a high and consistent standard.

  • It’s the most successful programme of its kind in England.
  • Over 80% of swimming lesson programmes use Swim England Learn to Swim Programme content.
  • It forms the cornerstone of curriculum swimming lessons in England.

Learning to swim is a fantastic experience that opens up a world of possibilities to everyone, as well as making them safer in the water.

The Learn to Swim Awards are a great way to keep swimmers motivated throughout their swimming journey. There are ‘core’ Awards which every child should achieve as they move through the Programme. These are supported by complementary Awards to keep children rewarded and motivated as they progress.
