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 Students
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.
Junior programmes:
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

The Lewis School specialises in teacher training offering Teacher Methodology, a range of EU funded courses and Trinity Cert TESOL. Courses can also be delivered to you, wherever you are
