Are classes at the South End location canceled for Sunday 12/26? Thanks!
We are excited to welcome British Swim School of Greater Boston to the Hope Floats Family!
My daughter was taking swimming classes for around 1 year, she really had a good experience, the instructors very friendly, she really enjoyed her classes, I really recommend British Swim School.

We're pretty excited about our promotion to Seahorse! He's wearing his hat around and talking about "bih bih pidahs (big, big spiders)".😂
Showing off his safety skills!!
We couldn’t be happier with British Swim School. Our fearless daughter has learned so much from Christine. The size of the classes are perfect and we are going into the summer with confidence that she will have a blast in the water and be safe at the same time.
We've loved our experience here! The staff is friendly and helpful, and the instructors are great with our toddler!
Be aware!!!!! This is a horrible program with no respect or customer service. They have no times to make up classes even tho they assure you that classes can be made up! My daughter is in turtle 2 with 5 kids giving her a total of 5 mins of swim time! For $27!!!! Not worth the money or aggravation!!!!
If you enjoy working with families and kids, our friends at British Swim School of Greater Boston are hiring! Part-time positions available for a Desk Ambassador and Swim Instructor - see below or call 978-710-9393 for more info.

Teaching anyone, at any age, to be water safe boosts confidence and creates PEACE OF MIND – not only for the swimmer but for the parent/guardian as well. That’s why we’ve dedicated the past 40 years to water safety education!

Hear what a happy parent had to say!


We couldn’t be more grateful for our industry partners, who support us in water safety education and drowning prevention. Together, we’ve raised over 60 scholarships – and counting – for students in underprivileged communities to learn to swim!

Swim all summer for SAFETY! Summer is in full swing with many families enjoying water-based activities such as swimming in pools, beaches, and lakes. As a part of a multi-layer safety approach, continuing to practice water survival and swimming skills can help to keep everyone safer!

World Ocean Day is the perfect time to remind everyone about beach and open water safety! 🏖️

Beach trips are a popular summer activity, but the ocean can be unpredictable. Unlike a swimming pool, you have to watch out for rip currents, waves and other natural dangers.

Make sure to follow these tips to make sure everyone stays safe near the beach and/or ocean 👇

There’s a common misconception that swimming can be learned in a matter of weeks. As much as we wish this were the case, it's simply not that easy much of the time!

Just as drowning isn’t just a summertime risk, swim lessons should not just be a summertime activity. That’s why we offer ongoing year-round classes, so children can stay consistent to make gradual, steady progress!
