For over 40 years, British Swim School has been dedicated to teaching water survival skills to children as young as three months old. Founder CEO Rita Goldberg launched British Swim School from her home in Manchester, England in 1981 and developed the unique and highly effective teaching methods that are a recognized trademark of the brand today. In April 2019, multi-brand franchising organization, Buzz Franchise Brands, acquired British Swim School but our mission has never changed. Following the mantra, ‘Survival of the Littlest,’ we are dedicated to teaching water survival skills to individuals of every age and ability.
British Swim Schools offer swimming lessons for babies, children, and adults, focusing first on water survival skills needed to survive a water accident before moving onto stroke development and more advanced skills. Dubbed as one of the fastest growing franchises in the U.S., we teach nearly 17,000 swimming lessons per week!
British Swim School is headquartered in Virginia Beach, VA and currently operates over 215 schools in 22 US states and Canadian provinces. There are tremendous franchise opportunities available throughout North America!
