For nearly 40 years, British Swim School has been dedicated to teaching water survival skills to children as young as three months old. Former CEO Rita Goldberg founded British Swim School in 1981 and developed the unique and highly effective teaching methods that are a recognized trademark of the brand. In April 2019, multi-brand franchising organization, Buzz Franchise Brands, became the majority owner of British Swim School but our mission has never changed. Following the mantra, ‘Survival of the Littlest,’ we are dedicated to teaching water survival skills.
We offer swimming lessons for babies, children, and adults. Dubbed as one of the fastest growing franchises in the U.S., we teach over 13,000 swimming lessons per week and conducted over 650,000 swimming lessons in 2019!
British Swim School is headquartered in Virginia Beach, VA and currently operates over 215 schools in 22 U.S. states and Canadian provinces. There are tremendous franchise opportunities available throughout North America!
British Swim School has formed corporate partnerships with Hope Floats Foundation, Stop Drowning Now and the United States Swim School Association, three organizations that share our mission to protect every life from drowning though education and water safety awareness. Together, we aim to significantly reduce the number of drowning incidents, not only in North America, but around the world.
British Swim School, the premier survival and stroke development swim lesson provider, is highly regarded as a leading brand in the franchise industry.
Founded in 2012, Buzz Franchise Brands is focused on building companies that get people talking. The organization’s first brand, Mosquito Joe, was sold to Neighborly in late 2018 after growing to almost 300 locations. Buzz Franchise Brands currently operates pool cleaning and maintenance company, Pool Scouts and residential cleaning company, Home Clean Heroes. British Swim School is the third brand to make up Buzz Franchise Brands’ family of franchise brands.
