The school is well located and within easy reach to most places. Close to the beach, families are within walking distance.

Students are always happy with the course and their teachers.

The activity staff are very friendly and the social programme varied variety is great when weather allows it.

The reception staff are always available and helpful. Super smiley!

My group has not left yet but they are already talking and making plans to come back next year. So I am pleased.

Southbourne School of English is nice and clean with excellent facilities and equipment, and located in a quiet and safe area. The courses are engaging and pleasant and all the students placed in the right level.

The accommodation is lovely and near the school. Friendly and caring families, the food much appreciated.

The programme is interesting with a wide range of social activities arranged for the students. The reception staff always efficient and ready to lend a hand.


The School is great, very clean and nice. Classrooms are modern and well-equipped, and it was good to have some benches to relax outside at lunchtime when it’s sunny.
The location is very nice, very safe, and safety is definitely important for kids’ holidays. It’s a family holiday resort, so the beaches are very teenagers-friendly. Having the sea close is a real pleasure (sunbathing, sports,..), all shops and services are within 10mn walk.

Course is taught by very professional teachers who found many interesting things to teach to all my different students. A test is taken on the first day and everyone is in a class of his/her level. All problems or enquiries were very professionally answered and explained by the teaching team.

Studying at Southbourne School of English, I think was a fantastic opportunity for our young students to study in an international environment with kids of their age from various different nationalities. My students made strong relationships with children from various country of the world and are delighted by that. Hopefully they’ll meet again!

The host families welcomed us and were all very friendly and very nice and tried to make us have the best stay possible. They communicated with the students, respected their freedoms but also had them respecting the rules and curfew as well. Staying with host family is the best way to practice English in an English-speaking environment and learn about England which is definitely great!

The Social Program is varied and different activities are suggested every day. Various trips are organised throughout the country (Stonehenge, London, Winchester…) which is good for cultural discovery.

The reception team is great, they manage to be very friendly and put you at ease at first sight but in the same time are extremely professional and competent and will solve problems very quickly! Thanks!

Generally speaking, I think everyone has had a good time at the School, and they obviously all improved their language skills, which is the aim of their stay! But they also made friends, met a new family, learnt some theory, and breathed some fresh air… Good holidays indeed!


The School is excellent, well organised and located in a very comfortable and lovely place. All the classrooms are fitted with state of the art interactive white boards, an internet cafe is provided free of charge for students and group leaders.

The course and material used are good, the teachers are kind and professional. Studying at the school has been a great experience.

Great activities are arranged for the children and teenagers to lots of different places. Our accommodation with host families was comfortable and they were very nice to us.

Everybody in reception is kind and lovely.


Southbourne School of English has been my choice of English schools for me and groups of around 35 students for over 10 years. The 2 weeks intensive course are an ideal preparation for Cambridge FCE exams.

What I appreciate most is the school principal’s professional attitude. It is very easy to organise tailor-made programs with her that suit our purposes perfectly. Any wishes that come up during the stay are taken care of in a professional way and dealt with to our complete satisfaction.

The teachers at Southbourne School do a very good job. They are friendly to the students but also challenge them to achieve good results.

The secretarial office, the people taking care of host families, the social programme manager are all very efficient and deal with any questions or problems A in a friendly atmosphere.

The town of Southbourne is ideal. It has the touch of countryside with all its advantages, but is also near Bournemouth, a big, modern, international town.

All in all, Southbourne School of English offers a very friendly, family-like atmosphere with excellent possibilities to improve your English language skills.

I can highly recommend it.


Students are placed in the right level for their course and the teachers are very nice. The social programme is interesting. We get to visit many places of national and historic value. There are also some entertaining activities such as laser quest and splashdown.
