Description of centre
Every year students from around 50 nationalities improve their English at our friendly school and we are waiting to give you a very warm welcome.
Established in 1976, we are a ‘boutique’ language school – independent, dynamic, specialised, personal and high in quality.
We are conveniently located in Southampton city centre, facing a beautiful park. The main bus stops and shopping areas are just a few minutes’ walk from the school.
We occupy four elegant late 18th-century townhouses with garden patios at the back. Facilities include a reception area, 16 classrooms, a study centre, a computer room, Internet with wireless access, a prayer room and a student coffee area. Next door is Southampton Solent University with 17,000 students. We co-operate in a number of ways and our students can use their cafeteria.
Our average number of students is 50-100, rising to 120 in July and August. We aim to maintain a good nationality balance. The average age of students is 24, with the majority aged between 18 and 30. The minimum age is 16. There is no maximum age.
In the summer months we run junior programmes (11-17) on school and university campuses in Southern England. In 2020 we will be running summer programmes in Southampton, Reading, New Forest & Guildford A unique offering is our Theatre, Art & Football Camp programmes where students mix with British children. During the rest of the year we run tailored programmes for groups aged from 11-18 based in Southampton
