We are more than swim lessons

We are a swim school

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

Do you have questions and would like to talk to someone local? Our friendly experts are happy help! Call them at (314) 312-1878. Our Enrollment Specialists are here Monday through Friday 9am to 5pm.

Our top priority is making sure children and adults 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.

We love the British Swim School.

My son has grown so confident in the water and loves his class. The instructors are great with him. All of the staff is super friendly. Highly recommend.

I can’t say enough about how awesome BSS has been!

We started our daughter in classes with the intention that she would learn to swim and maybe learn some swimming basics. In just over a year, she went from learning to float to starting to master butterfly, backstroke, breaststroke, and freestyle. She’s learned to love swimming for more than just getting to play in the water and at 6 years old she’s ready to join a swim team! The teachers have been fabulous and are so patient with her even when she wants to tell a story in the middle of working on flip turns! They are also quick to get her back on track with the lesson after listening to her stories! She has a great start in swimming because of BSS and all their great instructors!

Really impressed with the professionalism.

We had our first lesson yesterday at Gold’s Gym- Manchester Meadows. The instructor was beyond patient with my stubborn 3-year-old. I was really impressed with the professionalism of the British Swim School and look forward to watching our daughter progress.

We love British Swim School!

The small class size, personal attention, and watching my child become more comfortable and smart in the water are what makes this the best choice when it comes to swimming lessons. I’m so glad that I found British Swim School and encourage all parents to bring their children here. My child is learning vital life lessons here and I couldn’t be more grateful.

We have been so happy with the survival swim skills lessons for our boys. I highly recommend the British Swim School. The teachers and owners are so nice and truly caring about your child’s progress in the pool.

This Story Ends Happily – But It Was Almost a Tragedy

Last week a 5 year-old drowned. (He survived and will be fine so technically he was the victim of a drowning but a non-fatal drowning.) His mother has courageously and generously posted her harrowing story on Facebook in hopes that […]
