Welcome to British Swim School of Greater Virginia Beach

We are so excited to bring British Swim School’s revolutionary learn to swim program to Greater Virginia Beach! For almost 40 years, British Swim School has been dedicated to teaching water survival skills to children as young as three months old. Whether you want to introduce your infant to the water, advance your child’s swimming skills, or are an adult who wants to learn how to swim, British Swim School offers a variety of swimming classes for all ages and skill levels.

Our Program

Our curriculum-based program groups classes by age and ability and ensures that each student has mastered the goals of the class before advancing to the next level. Classes are conducted in small groups so Instructors can provide personalized attention to each student and modify instruction to ensure progress is being made! Not to mention, children have a blast learning with us! While our students understand they’re learning a critical lifelong skill, our swim lessons incorporate plenty of educational playtime to make learning comfortable and fun!

At British Swim School, students can expect to learn:

  • Water acclimation and becoming comfortable in the water
  • Floating, treading water, and other skills in preparation to learn full swim strokes
  • Beginner and advanced water survival techniques
  • Beginner and advanced swimming strokes
  • Breathing coordination
  • And so much more!

Water Safety & Survival Focus

While our swim lessons are centered around fun, we incorporate water safety skills at each level, so children are constantly learning as they progress from class to class. One way we support this is through a one-of-a-kind safety training called Survival Week, which occurs several times throughout the year. During Survival Week, we continue to work on our survival skills during the lessons, but students learn to do all these skills while wearing clothing. The reality is that people are not wearing their bathing suit and goggles when an accidental fall into water happens. We want everyone to experience this feeling in a controlled environment to decrease the panic in the event of an unexpected incident!
