What’s so special about British Swim School? Here’s what we do differently:

✅ British Swim School Water-Safety Lessons work for students of ANY AGE. Most of our students are 3-4 years old, but we start as early as 3 months, and also teach adults.

✅ We teach WITHOUT FLOATIES, because they give children a false sense of safety and do not prepare them for real-life emergencies. We only use them for playtime, never for skill development.

✅ No one has more expertise. Our lessons are based on 40 YEARS OF TEACHING EXPERIENCE. We have taught hundreds of thousands of student our way, we currently teach 17,000 lessons per week - and we have seen it all. Every child is different, and our program is purposely designed to help any student no matter the age or ability (including special needs).

✅ We are the only school who teaches children in their STREET-CLOTHES during our Survival Week several times per year, because real-life accidents happen fully clothed and a child needs to know how this extra weight feels.

✅ British Swim School instructors are amazingly FRIENDLY and have been HIGHLY TRAINED in how to teach children swimming skills. They know much more than just how to swim well.

✅ British Swim School lessons are GOAL-ORIENTED to accomplish the fastest progress for any student. Master your 5 goals, and you will graduate to the next level.

✅ British Swim School lessons are held year-round ongoing and NOT IN SESSIONS, because CONSISTENCY is key in learning a new skill. You can start any time.

✅ Students learn better in SMALL GROUPS, that’s why British Swim School’s beginner classes are 4:1 max.

✅ British Swim School students graduate and advance INDIVIDUALLY, no student is held back or pressured by the progress of the group.

How Much is My Monthly Tuition?

You will not pay the same tuition every month. For some months you will pay for 4 classes, some others 5, depending how the calendar falls and how often the class meets in that month.

Here’s how much you pay per month for classes at this pool:

 

If you qualify for the discounted rate, because you have more than one enrollment:

For each weekday enrollment, you pay either $119.28 or $149.10 per month:

— $119.28 per enrollment during months where the class meets 4 times

— $149.10 per enrollment during months where the class meets 5 times

For each weekend enrollment, you pay either $139.92 or $174.90 per month

— $139.92 per enrollment during months where the class meets 4 times

— $174.90 per enrollment during months where the class meets 5 times

 

To calculate your MONTHLY TOTAL, add up the amounts for each enrollment.

For Example, if you take one weekday and one weekend class, and there are 4 weeks of classes each:

Enrollment 1: $119.28

Enrollment 2: $139.92

Total Monthly for that month: $259.20

 

If you qualify for the 1x/week rate:

For Weekday classes, you pay either $140.28 or $175.35 per month

— $140.28 for months where the class meets 4 times

— $175.35 for months where the class meets 5 times

For Weekend classes, you pay either $164.56 or $205.70 per month

— $164.56 for months where the class meets 4 times

— $205.70 for months where the class meets 5 times

Fee Details

  • 2X THE CLASSES = 3X THE RESULTS! British Swim School recommends 2x per week classes for every student who wants to see fast results and save in the long run, as students who take swim lessons 2x per week reach their goals 3x faster. This means that they also need fewer classes in total, saving money in the long run. Why? You pay a lower tuition (*Best Value*) AND need to pay for less total classes over the course of the program, compared to 1x per week. Reaching to your goal quicker and for less money - Smart!
  • You are automatically eligible for our *Best Value* price if:
    • One student takes lessons 2x per week
    • Siblings take at least one lesson per week each
    • An adult and a child take at least one lesson per week each
  • ANNUAL MEMBERSHIP FEE: $39 per student / $50 per family. (This fee is waived for “JCC of Bayonne” members and “Xchange at Secaucus Junction” residents - please mention this when you enroll, so we can check and waive the fee.). This membership fee will be included in your initial payment.
  • FIRST MONTH’S TUITION: The classes of the first calendar month are paid upon enrollment on a pro-rated basis – you pay for each class from your desired start date until the end of this month. You can start as early as today!
  • After this initial payment, your card will automatically be charged on the 25th of each month for the following month’s tuition, the amount changes depending on if there are 4 or 5 classes in that month, as you pay per class and not a flat monthly fee.
  • As payment we accept Visa, MasterCard, Discover and Amex. No cash or check payments.
  • For a more detailed breakdown of our pricing that explains how we calculate the monthly totals, please click HERE.
  • RISK-FREE GUARANTEE! We do not offer trial classes. We know from our 35+ years of experience that you cannot judge the quality of a swim program in just one lesson, but we offer a Risk-Free Guarantee. If you enroll, take two consecutive classes and are not satisfied, we will refund you all tuition fees that you pre-paid, including the fees for the two lessons you have already taken. Please note: You have to take two lessons in the water with us for this, we will not provide refunds if you leave after just one class, as we want your child to get the chance to get acclimated, which rarely happens in just one class.
  • All classes are 30-minutes long.
  • All classes, including adults, are conducted in small groups (4:1 student/instructor ratio max, Tadpole and Stroke Development classes 6:1 student/instructor ratio max).
  • We allow one Make-Up lesson per month with advance notice for free, or without advance notice for a fee of $10.

Testimonials

They have the best coaches!

They have the best coaches! They've helped me overcome my extreme fear of water, I would panic my first couple of sessions but the coaches are patient and focused on making you learn. They clearly know what they are doing and making this experience fun for people of every age. I have begun liking being in the water and can't wait to go learn the next level from them!

Meena Ganatra

I've noticed major improvements!

We have been going for about 2 months with my 2 kids (4 and 6). They love the class and I notice major improvements (actually swimming) on vacation this past month. What I love most about the British Swim School is they first teach survival in the pool. A very important step many swim coaches do not. Both kids are happy in the water. I believe by the summer they will be confident little swimmers!

Kristin Hopkins-Clegg

I recommend the British Swim School for swimming lessons at any age!

My five year old son went from not even being able to float to becoming a pool shark in a matter of months! I am very happy with his instructors. I agree that to see results kids need to have at least two swimming lessons per week. It is a slow process for some kids - my son was like that at the beginning, but then one day it just clicked for him and he progressed so fast! I recommend the British Swim School for swimming lessons at any age!

Lissy Evans

I am so happy I signed us up!

My daughter started attending classes at the Weehawken location in mid July when she was 13 months old. She has already become comfortable in the water and we are progressing toward the all important back float. I am so happy I signed us up. I say us because I am also learning how to guide her and help her feel safe as she explores and learns.

Lauren J.

I highly recommended British Swim School!

My son, Gabriel, started to attend British Swim School after attending another swimming program since he was six months old without any signs of improvement. There are so many benefits to having your child enrolled in British Swim School, I honest do not know where to start. There is not just one thing that makes me give British Swim School five stars. It is a unique combination of excellent teachers, effective teaching techniques, and well-rounded staff members. I highly recommended British Swim School.
