Chicago’s Premier Swim School Since 1981

For nearly four decades, British Swim School has built a reputation as an outstanding swim school in Chicago, building water safety and confidence for thousands. At British Swim School, we view swimming lessons as life skills – ones which are best taught at a young age so kids are set up for a lifetime of fun in and around the water.

Water Safety is All About Enjoying Yourself

The water is fun, but it’s no joke. Water safety and competence is vital. The absolute best way to teach people, young and old, to enjoy the water with competence and confidence is to make the process fun. We make learning to swim in Lake County a blast. We also do it in a way that makes the most sense for different age groups and experience levels.

Whether you are just getting into the water for the first time as an adult, or are looking at swim lessons for kids, infants or toddlers, our friendly, professional, certified instructors tailor everything to suit varying needs. If you are looking for private swimming classes, we can build a customized one-on-one plan for you as well.

Our Reputation is Built on Trust

In 2021, nearly 40,000 students throughout the country have trusted British Swim School to impart necessary and life-saving swimming and water safety knowledge to their children. Additionally, we have helped thousands of adults learn skills and techniques they weren’t fortunate enough to learn at a younger age. The result is people of all ages across Lake County with increased water confidence. Swimming is also a great anaerobic workout and immunity booster.

With multiple easy-to-reach locations spread across Lake County, enrolling in one of our classes is a snap. You can enroll online by clicking the “book a class” icon. Simply find a class that is appropriate for your or your children’s experience level, choose a time slot and then continue on to the easy registration process.
