We look forward to seeing you in one of our pools very soon!


My daughter’s confidence has grown

My daughter’s confidence has grown more than I’ve ever heard from anyone else doing other swim lessons through gold fish or the ymca or anywhere. Love these classes!

Looking forward to the next step of Barracuda!

The foundation and stroke technique that BSS was able to provide Andrew has been beyond our expectations as parents. At just 5 years old, he was the talk of the summer swim team. We look forward to continued success in your program and are looking forward to the next step of Barracuda!

Best swim company

Best swim company I’ve ever worked with. My timid unconfident swimmers blossomed into confident and brave fish under the instruction of kind, patient and attentive staff. Can’t speak highly enough!

Michael does such a great job

Hello, My 6 year old, Sammy, has weekly classes with Mr. Michael on Saturdays at the LA Fitness on Quince Orchard. I just wanted to take a moment to tell you what a wonderful instructor Michael is. He has an amazing combination of talents that make for a great teacher–he is gentle and kind, yet authoritative enough so that the children listen and pay attention. He is so sweet with the kids, and friendly and polite with the parents. Sammy loves him and has been consistently progressing since we started lessons last year. Michael does such a great job attending to each child’s individual needs and approaching challenges from different angles. I hope you do everything that you can to retain him. He seems to be the gold standard representative for British Swim School! I’m not sure what he does when he’s not an instructor, but he would be an amazing school teacher! Thanks so much, Liza B (also, my British husband concurs. 🙂 )

We recommend British Swim School

British Swim School has played a role in giving my two children confidence in and out of the pool. The program that focuses on survival first, has changed our experiences in and around pools, rivers and oceans for the better. We are a very water oriented family (paddle boarding, swimming and boating) and British Swim School has enhanced these activities for us. Great people to work with management to the instructors. We originally tried other local swim schools and they simply do not compare. We recommend British Swim School to anyone who is in need of swimming lessons. -Tom P
