Young kids need to learn water safety and swim survival skills, period.

British Swim School of South Nashville is now offering their parent trusted, kid loved and time-tested water safety & swim lessons to our Middle Tennessee families.


Drowning is the leading cause of death among children ages 1 – 10. British Swim School’s mission is to help prevent these tragic deaths with a two-step curriculum that teaches children and adults water safety survival skills first and swimming skill development second.

Research shows that participation in formal swim programs such as British Swim School can reduce the risk of drowning by 88 percent among children who are most at risk for deaths caused by drowning.


At British Swim School, we’ve been trusted by families for over 35 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 Franklin TN pool temperature is a warm 85 – 86 degrees. 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! You don’t have to ‘slot in’ with an existing class. We start new classes with other children at the same level.
  • 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. Everyone deserves to have fun in the water, learn how to swim, and learn survival techniques that will serve them their entire life.

We would recommend British Swim School above any other program in the area!

We tried three other local swim programs before coming to the British Swim School with our 3 year old. After our first class, the school’s organization, teacher quality, and method of teaching highly impressed us. Our daughter’s fear of submersion quickly dissolved with the gentle encouragement from her teachers, and she is now flourishing in her water survival skills. We are so impressed with how quickly she is learning and moving through the sequence of swim skills.

Extremely caring and approachable.

Our daughter has proven to learn well in small groups or private lessons, but other swim facilities in the area failed to provide consistent scheduling – and more importantly to our daughter, consistent swim instructors.

British Swim School was suggested by a community parents’ group and we are SOOOOO glad we joined! The price point is perfect, they have an online payment and scheduling system. Make-up classes are super easy to schedule.

We absolutely love their approach to water safety and swimming foundations first. If your kiddo falls in, they will know how to float on their back from the start! It makes me feel so good knowing that she will have these basics under her belt. And watching the children just a few levels above her swimming laps like pros makes me even more excited to see what she is capable of.

The owners and instructors are all extremely caring and approachable. They know all the children’s names. It is just a very welcoming and family-oriented environment. We cannot recommend this school highly enough!

We’ve had a great experience here.

Our preschooler is very slow to warm up but they’ve been so patient and accommodating. We have the same coach each week to build trust and relationship. They teach skills but they also create confidence. Water safety skills are worth every penny spent and their weekly lessons are so helpful. I anticipate we will still be here when she’s older and learning strokes for swim team!

I wish I could give more than 5 stars.

My 8 year old daughter went from hating the water to jumping in with the other kids in a matter of a few weeks. Everyone is super friendly and patient. It will be one of the best things you do for your child. Teaching water safety while having the most fun is what they are all about. Very highly recommended!!

Great program!

Great Program! Testimonial from customer

The British Swim School is regarded as the best swim lesson program in the country that teaches babies 3 months and older to swim and survive in the water. They are important to any family and I highly recommend their program which “saves lives” one child at a time. Protect the ones you love most!

The coaches are phenomenal!

My daughter has learned so much in such a short period of time. I love that they are focused on survival techniques first, and then they concentrate on swimming techniques! The coaches are phenomenal!
