Quick Facts about our Lovely CEO

Rita Goldberg with children

Rita Goldberg founded British Swim School in 1981 and remains CEO. She evolved her methodology of swimming over the last 35 years and began teaching survival skills to children as young as three months old. In an interview with the Huffington Post, Rita mentions that she gets into the water when she’s stressed, happy, or when she’s tired. Rita struggled opening the first ever British Swim School location in a three-story home with ample parking in 1980, Manchester. This type of business venture had never been done before! But, Rita was able to apply at a reality show named Enterprise 80, that had a similar concept of Shark Tank. She ended up in the final 50 business proposals, so that guaranteed her a business loan. This was the jumpstart of Rita’s passion and our lovely company British Swim School.
