About us

Drowning is the leading cause of death in children under 5 years of age. Swimming lessons are a vital part of your child’s development and should be started as early as possible.

British Swim School has been dedicated to teaching water survival for over 30yrs. Our methods are based on teaching beginners of all age groups that the ability to float on their back is the most important water survival skill of all. This enables all swimmers to rest, breath and call for help, thus alleviating the “silent” danger of floating face down. British Swim School owner, Rita Goldberg, has worked continuously to develop, improve and fine tune these methods resulting in the ability to teach babies as young as 3 month old to roll over onto their backs. Our teaching is a gradual, gentle and fun process.
