Make a Living Saving Lives!
Beginning with 1-2 office staff and 2-3 instructors, this business model allows for a lot of room for growth. Your staff will start small, but it will grow as your business scales into new and/or more locations. The very low overhead allows for franchisees to break even very quickly.

Our model allows entrepreneurs with limited capital, or who don’t want a 6 or 7 figure investment risk hanging over their shoulders, to launch their swim school and move quickly towards success.

Our mantra, “Survival of the Littlest” not only applies to our program aimed at enabling the very young to survive a water accident. It reflects the growing number of British Swim School Franchise Owners many of whom began their journey as entrepreneurs with only limited investment capital, and who are now multi-unit successful business owners.
