Congratulations! You're a...Passionate Professional

Ready to Make a Living Doing Something You Love?

Finally… You Can Turn Your Passion into Your Profession!

“Up, up, up! Let’s move, move, move!” Your alarm clock blares like a stern, no-nonsense drill sergeant. Ugh! Just 60 minutes of freedom before starting your sluggish commute through bumper-to-bumper traffic. Afterward, you’ll watch the time tick by, as if the clock’s taunting those waiting for its passage under the unforgiving glow of fluorescent lights…

Sound familiar? If so, don’t worry. Many people feel like a hamster on a wheel, stuck working tirelessly in an unfulfilling job to pay the bills. But the thought of leaving a secure job and facing the uncertainty of entrepreneurship can feel like a pipe dream.

The result? You become trapped in a life that feels more like surviving than thriving. One where the question “is this all there is?” becomes an endless loop inside your wandering mind, lost in a daydream of something better.

Now, ask yourself, would you rather live a life driven by passion rather than obligation? If you answered yes, it’s time to turn your dream of business ownership into a rewarding reality. As a purpose-driven entrepreneur, you can finally do something you love for a living while making a meaningful difference in your community.

Learn More About the British Swim School Franchise

What is British Swim School?

For over 40 years, British Swim School has dedicated itself to teaching water survival skills to people of all ages, offering swim lessons for babies, children, and adults. We first established the brand in 1981, quickly gaining national recognition for our unique and highly effective teaching methods. Acknowledged as the fastest-growing swim school franchise in North America, we hold nearly 36,000 swimming lessons per week and conducted over 1.8 million swimming lessons in 2023.

Do I need any prior experience?

No prior experience is necessary to become an owner with us. All we require is your commitment to providing professional and effective service, following the standards set by our existing British Swim School franchise owners. We look for individuals who have great people skills and enjoy building and leading teams.

Do I have to build a pool facility?

No! We partner with facilities that have under used pools, such as hotels, fitness centers, and retirement communities. This allows you to avoid the expensive and time-consuming build-out of a pool and the ongoing costs of maintenance. Plus, we have established partnerships with several facilities though North America, giving you access to a network of potential pool partners. This makes it easier to expand your business without the hassle of negotiating a contract each time.

How does the business model work?

You’ll unlock access to a proven business model that reduces your risks. British Swim School has been operating since 1981, and our sustained success is a testament to the reliability of our franchise opportunity. Our curriculum-based program focuses on teaching water acclimation, water survival, and stroke development. As swimmers progress through our program, they follow the class structure they’ve become accustomed to, ensuring a smooth and seamless transition to more advanced classes. Plus, swim lessons aren’t a onetime service, providing you with a scalable business that can generate recurring revenue and positive word-of-mouth referrals.

How much does it cost?

Our affordable start-up costs empower you to open a swim school without the burden of a large loan. The estimated initial investment for purchasing a British Swim School franchise ranges from $93,700 to $125,850 and includes everything you need to get started, ensuring there aren’t unexpected surprises during the opening process. Comparatively, the initial investment required to start a swim school can range from $100,000 to $1,000,000 or more.

What training and support will I receive?

Our in-depth training program and ongoing support provide you with a competitive edge. You’ll have the support and ongoing guidance of the entire British Swim School team, including operations, marketing, and aquatics. And throughout the year, you’ll stay connected with the rest of the franchise family through regular system-wide calls, an intranet for engaging together online, and an annual convention.

Owner Testimonials

Hear from the British Swim School franchise family

Although I had a lucrative career, I was not happy and did not feel rewarded. My husband and I were looking for an investment opportunity when we discovered franchising. It provided a sound investment while fulfilling a professional need I had been missing.

I knew nothing about running a business or managing a staff, weaknesses I discovered quickly. Fortunately, the franchisor’s support and my relationships with many other owners have proven extremely valuable. This has helped me improve business processes and apply that knowledge!

– Nikki Taylor, British Swim School of Flatirons
