Angela's Swim School

Angela's Swim School

Company Overview

We have created a successful business model, teaching thousands of children and adults to swim.

Founder Angela Wilson is passionate about the way swimming is coached. An ex-GB international swimmer, Angela knows the importance of technique. Her programme has been perfected over the years, and several swim schools now benefit from the same business structure.

Whether aspiring to the highest level, or simply learning for leisure and to feel safe in water, we teach clients to swim with style.

Franchise Overview

Angela’s first swim school was developed into a thriving business over several years. The second school was launched in 2010 to the same business model, and quickly became a success.

To grow the business further we needed committed, like-minded people.We decided to franchise to develop our successful enterprise, to encourage growth and share the rewards. Five franchises were quickly established following the launch of the franchise business in autumn 2013.

We are currently seeking franchisees throughout the UK

Initial training is an intensive four-day classroom and pool-based induction to familiarise with all elements of our unique programme. We work with franchisees to maximise opportunities in their area, planned around the best pool locations. There’s always demand for a good swim school. Franchisees can be home- or office-based.

When established and programme-trained in your area, telephone support is available for any on-the-job enquiries.

Daily Life of a Franchisee

Our franchisees manage their business, including local marketing and PR. They run the administration, the appointment of coaches, and organise the classes. It’s a healthy, varied role; in the early stages franchisees will be active in all areas, then delegate coaching and admin roles as the business grows.

A reasonable level of computer literacy is important. Recruitment, training of swimming instructors, and a consistent high quality of teaching is mandatory.
