What Is British Swim School?
Learning to swim is an essential life skill that every child and adult should know, but it's about more than just mastering the perfect swim stroke; it's about teaching water safety and survival techniques to combat the many lives lost to drowning. For over 40 years, British Swim School has taught all ages, from infants to adults, how to swim and be safe in the water through unique and highly effective teaching methods that are a recognized trademark of the brand. While many of our owners prefer to be hands-on owner-operators, it is also possible to start as a semi-absentee model, with the right team in place. Beginning with 1-2 office staff and 2-3 instructors, this business model allows for a lot of room for growth. Each franchise owner is paired with a dedicated business coach, who is available to assist with any operational questions you have – from budgeting and hiring to training and more!
