Survival Swimming Lessons In & Around Hudson Waterfront, NJ


How every child and adult can learn to be safe in the water, even if they are currently afraid

Did you know that an equivalent of 13 school busses full of children die from drowning each year in the U.S. alone, and that over half of them drown while a parent is less than 25 yards away?

Here’s the problem: Water is everywhere, and children simply wander off. It only takes a few moments for a child to drown. Imagine losing a child in the blink of an eye.

Luckily, there is solution: British Swim School’s award-winning swim lessons are especially designed to teach any child (or adult!) how to survive an accidental fall into water, regardless of age (starting at 3 months!) or previous ability.

What’s so special about British Swim School?

Survival Skills Focus: Every student will learn survival skills, especially how to float, before we start stroke development, so he or she is prepared to survive an accidental fall into water. Water survival is different from swimming, and knowing how to survive means less worry for you as a parent.

Goal-Orientated Curriculum: Students are given 5 clearly defined goals to achieve for each skill level, in order to graduate. By monitoring these goals, the instructors know exactly what skill to work on at any given time. Constantly achieving new goals keeps students motivated and leads to faster progress.

Individualized Learning: Our students graduate and advance individually and at their own pace, so no student will be held back by the rest of the group. Individualized learning shows faster results.

Small Groups: For the same reason, survival classes have a 4:1 ratio at max, so the instructor can spend more one-on-one time with each student and personalize the instructions.

No Floaties: Our Students learn without floaties, because they give a false sense of safety and do not prepare children for real-life emergencies. By doing so, your child will be better prepared for an accidental fall into water and won’t panic because he or she is missing floaties.

Floating in Street Clothes: We even teach our students to float in their street clothes during our signature Survival Week multiple times per year, because real-life accidents happen fully clothed. This mean your child will know how to float or swim with the extra drag of wet clothing. No other swim school prepares your child that thoroughly.

Awesome Instructors: British Swim School instructors are amazingly friendly and highly trained in how to teach children. They know how to gently interact with them and make learning fun, so your loved one will enjoy classes and even look forward to the next lesson.

Ongoing Classes: Our lessons are held year-round ongoing in heated indoor pools - and not in sessions, because consistency is key in learning a new skill. No student ever needs to stop learning because the session or the season is over, thus losing progress. This also means that you can start any time and don’t have to wait for a new session to begin.

Why British Swim School?

We have a wealth of experience, because we have been doing this for a long time. Our unique method was developed almost 40 years ago by a former Olympic swimmer for England (thus the name British Swim School…) and we have taught hundreds of thousands of students nationwide how to be safe in the water.

We have learned a lot along the way and have constantly refined and improved our teaching method, to the point where we can proudly say that we consider ourselves the best in the world at what we do.

Today, our curriculum is taught by hundreds of British Swim Schools across the U.S. and Canada. We teach over 17,000 lessons per week!

What parents say!

But don’t take just our word for it. You can find hundreds of 5-star reviews from happy parents online, here are just a few from some local parents in Jersey City, Bayonne and Secaucus:

This is a very well organized and reliable company. When my son began at age 3, clear goals were set up and they made progress at every class. The teachers also filled me in every week regarding how he is doing and what he can work on

My five-year-old son went from not even been able to float to becoming a pool shark in a matter of months! I am very happy with his instructors.

Lizzy E. via Google


British Swim School is excellent; the teachers are absolutely great! They really know how to teach the kids step by step, they are also very patient and fun. You can tell they enjoy what they do and the framework they provide for the goals that need to be achieved at each level just works!! My daughter has loved swimming since she was 4-5 months and it’s because of British Swim School. I would highly recommend them.

How about tuition?

Our classes are 30 minutes long and tuition is charged per class. Monthly tuition depends on how many classes there are in a month. In most months there are 4, but in some months there are 5. Each pool location has a different per-class rate, you can find the details by selecting your school below.

Payment is made as a monthly pre-payment at the end of each month for the next month. Upon enrolling today, you will pay the remainder of this month, plus our annual membership fee of $39 per student or $50 for a whole family. You can find the rates after you select your location.
