About our Survival-Based Swimming Lessons

Since 1981, British Swim School has been dedicated to helping individuals become safer, stronger swimmers. Using gentle instruction and revolutionary teaching techniques, we strike to make swimming an educational and enjoyable experience for everyone!

We’ve been trusted by families for over 40 years thanks to our…

  • Individualistic approach – We get to know our students and families on a personal level, enjoying relationships that can last for years.
  • Highly-Trained, Child-Friendly Instructors – We don’t just select our Instructors based on their skills and professional experience. We also look for character and a caring, fun personality, so that learning is not just safe, but fun, for your child.
  • Warm Water! – Our pools are warm. So, you won’t hear complaints of ‘I’m cold’. Kids love our pools; we hold classes year-round.
  • Year Round, Ongoing Enrollment – You don’t have to wait for the school term to start before you enroll. We welcome children and families at any time! No need to wait for the next session to start or lose progress by starting over!
  • Small Classes – We keep our classes small, so that your child gets the individual attention that he or she needs and deserves.
  • All Ages – All-Inclusive – We teach babies from as young as 3 months old, right up to adults. We’re also trained to teach children and adults with special needs.

But don’t take just our word for it. You can find hundreds of 5-star reviews from happy parents online, here are just a few from some local parents in Jersey City, Bayonne and Secaucus:

“My 5-year-old son had never taken swim lessons before starting with British Swim School, and he did not like getting his face wet. Now, he LOVES swim lessons and has learned so much. The swim instructors and staff have all been warm and encouraging!”

– Ryland C., Boulder, CO


“We LOVE British Swim School! The staff and instructors have been incredible with my little guy (3 yrs.), helping him not only get comfortable in the water but learning basic strokes. He’s come leaps and bounds since his first lesson! Highly recommend this program!”

– Rhys K., Boulder, CO


“My daughter has made amazing progress, and I feel confident she can survive if she fell in or jumped into an unsafe area. We originally started at another swim school because it was cheap, and we regret not choosing British Swim School from the start. Peace of mind and safety, in my opinion, is something that you can’t place a dollar amount on.”

– Olive K., Boulder, CO


“We appreciate all that British Swim School has done to get our kids back in the pool. Our kids can’t wait to go! The COVID protocols keep us feeling safe and we appreciate all the staff does to help our kids.”

– Kacee B., Boulder, CO


“Everything is organized and clean and the instructors were amazing, as always, even while having to wear a shield.”

– Zaylee A., Boulder, CO
