British Swim School Prepares to Make Big Splash in Pasadena

Water Safety and Survival School Launches Southern California Location


British Swim School, a franchise concept best known for its education of water safety as an essential survival skill amongst a fun and gentle environment, is continuing its nationwide expansion with a new pool location in California. The addition officially opened to the public on April 7, but is being celebrated through a grand opening on Friday, June 1 featuring raffle prizes, games, and delicious handmade ice pops made by local San Gabriel Valley company Nomad Pops – a perfect, refreshing treat to cool off and start the celebration! In addition, the location will have be offering specialty grand opening promotions as well.

The grand opening will also feature a ribbon cutting ceremony held by the Pasadena Chamber of Commerce at 2:30 p.m. The new Pasadena location will be run by first-time franchisees, and husband and wife duo, Mario and Angelica Cornejo. The couple was inspired to join the water-oriented franchise after their startling realization of how many children pass away each year due to drowning.

“Everyone associated with the British Swim School brand has a genuine passion when it comes to teaching water safety and in spreading awareness of its importance,” said Angelica Cornejo, British Swim School franchisee. “It inspired my husband and I to live out this passion as well, through the opening of our own location. We're looking forward to making our mark throughout our community and the lives we'll help to save.”

British Swim School offers a two-step curriculum teaching children and adults of all ages, some as young as three months, water safety and survival skills, along with swimming skill development. While parental supervision is always the number one safety measure, research shows that participation in formal swim programs, such as those offered by British Swim School, can reduce the risk of drowning by 88 percent among children who are most at risk for deaths caused by drowning.

The British Swim School franchise concept operates a unique water safety program with teaching methods that serve as a trademark for the brand. The company offers lessons out of multiple national fitness chains and hotel pools year-round, based on the premise that children progress at different rates. Each child, regardless of age, is placed in their correct skill level and will have certain achievable objectives. British Swim School operates in nearly 200 schools in 21 states within the U.S., and holds nearly 14,000 lessons per week nationally, and conducted nearly 600,000 swimming lessons in 2017.

The newly opened British Swim School is located at LA Fitness in Hastings Ranch, which is at 355 N. Rosemead Blvd., Pasadena, CA 91107. For more information about this British Swim School, visit, or find them on Facebook and Instagram using britishswimschoolpasadena.
