The sessions are part of Havering Council’s commitment to offer 60,000 free sessions for children and young adults until 2022.
This follows on from the success of the summer holidays which saw over 16,300 booked across six weeks.
Advanced bookings can be made from today at Sapphire Ice and Leisure and Central Park Leisure Centre.
Recently opened Harrow Lodge Leisure Centre, which includes a 25-metre, eight-lane swimming pool and a 20-metre-wide learning and diving pool, are also taking bookings.
The Leader of Havering Council, Damian White, said: “Free swimming is an opportunity to keep our younger residents fit, active and healthy during the school holidays.
“It has been really satisfying to see how popular the free sessions have been over the summer and I’m sure this will remain the case during the upcoming half-term.
“Leisure is at the forefront of the Council’s ambition and we see free swims as an example of our continuing investment in facilities, which directly benefits young people and their families.
“We recognise that keeping younger family members occupied during school holidays is a challenge, and free swimming makes it free and easy for young people to enjoy our great facilities.”
