As the popularity of S4 Swim School continues to grow, we have packaged S4 Swim's model and introduced a franchise programme to enable passionate, ambitious and driven individuals to open their own schools across the UK.

Our vision is to provide the best quality of service in the UK - by demonstrating a sound understanding of water safety, as well as honing a pathway strategy for continued swimming development. We want to make sure young people can grow in and out the pool, in a safe and enjoyable environment.

An S4 Swim franchise offers you the chance to run your own swim school, with structured advice and support from people who have been through the same journey.

You won't need to dive in at the deep end. Our franchisees have the backing of head office staff and fellow swim school owners, not to mention training, IT and marketing support. So you can be safe in the knowledge that we're with you every step of the way, in all aspects of running your business.

We are passionate about what we do, and we want everyone that joins the S4 family to share our passion, embrace our philosophies and grow with us. In fact, we believe this is the only way to ensure the success of a franchise.

To have what it takes, you must be dedicated, ambitious and passionate about swimming development. You don't need previous experience of swimming coaching, but a head for numbers and a will to succeed are a must.

With over 100 territories still available across the UK, you can be sure that there is a local S4 Swim School opportunity for you.
