Happy Easter!

Wishing you an Easter filled with love, peace and joy of springtime.

Please note the school is closed for Easter from the 18th – 21st of April  and will reopen on the 22nd of April.


Congratulations to our teacher, Linda Addison, who has just been awarded the Masters degree. She was often working while she was studying, so she had to work really hard.

One of the modules was based on work done at Southbourne School of English. We are very proud of Linda – and, of course, of the school which helped her to that success!

Happy Mothering Sunday!

A chance on this special day to say thank you to all our mothers for the life and the love they have given us and remembering all that they do.

Wishing you all a lovely Mother’s day!

Mix and Mingle

Today the teachers looked on proudly as the students practised socialising in English.

Half of the school at a time made their way to the meeting room, where they were asked to approach each other and start a conversation. Although there were a lot of shy students at the beginning, after half an hour they were all chatting happily. What a great experience!

Now, none of them should be frightened of work conferences where they might have to speak in English to people they are meeting for the first time. It was also useful practice for the students who are facing their First Exam speaking test either this evening or next Thursday!

Southbourne School – We Keep Improving!

We have recently finished a major extension here in Bournemouth to meet the growing demand for our English language courses. The extension has added 5 new state-of-the-art, fully air-conditioned classrooms. Taking the total number of classrooms to 22. Here at the school, we continue to ensure that all of our classroom have interactive whiteboards.

Christmas is Murder!

We all know that Christmas can be murder – on the feet when we’re shopping and on the bank balance, when we spend too much money. This year, in a break from our traditional pantomime, the Southbourne Thespians will be putting on the mystery Christmas is Murder!

The successful Christmas Choir competition winner, Noelle Wreath is poisoned at the award ceremony….. but whodunnit. For that matter, why did they do it and how did they do it, too?

Teams of students and teachers will help Detective Superintendent Holly Berry to solve the mystery on Thursday 19th December, lesson 3.

My Experience at Southbourne School of English – Fuyu from Japan

The school is located in Bournemouth, Southwest of England, so there is plenty of lovely sunshine. There is a nice beach, so we can enjoy the beautiful scenery all year round. Transport links are good, and there are a lot of shops, and it’s calm and safe. So Bournemouth is a good place to live in.

This school has a homelike atmosphere. I think Japanese like this atmosphere, so it’s easy to become familiar with this school for Japanese. In addition, this school accept student’s opinions and the students come from all over the world, so we can enjoy getting to know about many different cultures.

I was one of the students who was anxious about the home stay accommodation, but my host family was very kind to me, and everyone says “I have very nice host family.” During my stay I have never heard anything about a bad host family. I think that living with British people is a good way to improving English and learning about the country’s culture.

I think I chose the best school!
