Welcome to British Swim School!

The Greater St. Louis British Swim School family is delighted to offer on-going enrollment in British Swim School’s unique program at either of our local pool.

We offer a variety of year-round classes, from water survival and learn-to-swim through advanced stroke development, and we welcome all ages, from 3 months to adults. Our small classes, fun and gentle methods, highly trained instructors, and heated indoor pools ensure the best possible learning environment for your little one!

Whether you are seeking a welcoming ‘Mommy and me’ class, a learn-to-swim program, or wish to concentrate on stroke development, simply click the “Find a Class” button to begin selecting the class that best serves you or your little one’s needs.  We do not use fixed sessions so you can start and end your enrollment to fit your schedule and students can move up to the next level as soon as they are ready.

Not sure which program to choose or still have other questions? You can simply contact our friendly, local team at 314-312-1878 or [email protected] We are here to help you with every aspect of your swim journey.

Our top priority is making sure children are SAFE around water. Drowning is the leading cause of accidental death in children 1-4 years old, but it doesn’t have to be. If you decide that we aren’t the right fit for you, we hope that you will consider enrolling your child in another water survival program near you. With your help we can achieve our motto: “Survival of the Littlest.”

We look forward to seeing you at our pools soon!

My daughter’s confidence has grown more than I’ve ever heard from anyone else doing other swim lessons through gold fish or the ymca or anywhere. Love these classes!

The foundation and stroke technique that BSS was able to provide Andrew has been beyond our expectations as parents. At just 5 years old, he was the talk of the summer swim team. We look forward to continued success in your program and are looking forward to the next step of Barracuda!

Best swim company I’ve ever worked with. My timid unconfident swimmers blossomed into confident and brave fish under the instruction of kind, patient and attentive staff. Can’t speak highly enough!
