Young swimmers are learning lifesaving skills over half term.
The Claires Court Schools Holiday Club, held across the school's sites, introduced a badge award scheme as part of the club's swimming programme.
The award scheme is run with the support of Swimkidz and the STA International Learn to Swim Programme (ILSP) and offers badges for the non-swimmer up to the competent diver.
Lynne Constantine, business development manager at the schools, said: "It is fun sessions rather than a lesson."
The idea behind the award scheme is that it builds children's confidence and teaches even the youngest swimmers how to be safe around water.
