Description of centre

Southbourne School of English has been teaching English for over 50 years. Many things have changed over that time but our commitment to providing quality English teaching in a safe environment is still the same. We offer adult and junior courses and have a summer residential centre in Bournemouth. We are an Examination centre for Cambridge lower suite, BEC, Trinity and LanguageCert. The school is still family owned, situated in a quiet suburb of Bournemouth just 10-minutes’ walk from the beach and the majority of our host families are within walking distance of the school. Changes over the last few years include the addition of new classrooms (23 now), interactive whiteboards and wifi throughout the school. Our local shopping area is thriving and now benefits from a range of independent and well-known restaurants, bars and coffee shops. The staff at school are friendly and look forward to welcoming you whether you want to learn English for business, pleasure or study.
