We are happy to welcome closed adult groups for students aged 16+ at any time of year, and can tailor our courses to meet specific needs. We offer a range of options, including general courses, intensive courses, cultural programmes, and more. Examination courses are very popular, enabling students to gain certified qualifications at the end of their studies. We offer a number of different examination courses including Cambridge exam courses, IELTS courses and Business English Certificate courses.
All of our closed groups can be provided with a full social and activities programme. Examples of what can be offered include: trips to local historical and cultural places of interest; half-day and full-day excursions to a number of places known throughout the world such as London, Oxford, Bath, Stonehenge, the Jurassic coast etc; a wide range of sport and leisure activities including football, golf, surfing, bowling, horse riding, paintballing etc; social events such as film and quiz nights.
Transfers from all major UK airports can be arranged for all groups.
For more information, or if you would like to discuss a possible closed group booking, please contact the school office using the contact details at the back of this brochure.
At the end of the course, students receive a certificate which assesses their level according to the CEF (Common European Framework) levels.
We also offer junior homestay courses run at Southbourne School and residential courses run at locations in the South of England, both homestay and residential, for young people aged 12-15yrs (homestay) and 10-16yrs (residential) during the summer months (mid-June - end of August) and for closed groups all year round.
For further details, contact the school office for a copy of our junior brochure or visit our website (see our contact details on the back cover).
Please note that students aged 9-11 may be in the junior classes at the main school and residential centres if they have enrolled as part of a group. 16 year olds may be in main school junior courses for the same reason.
