Located in a residential neighbourhood in Winchester, our partner school boasts a safe and comfortable environment to learn English. Thanks to the school's small size, the staff can devote more time to each student and offer high quality courses. Teachers are there to guide you in your studies and discovery of British life. Classes are held in small groups of maximum 8-10 students and the school organises lots of exciting activities to make sure you enjoy your time with the other international students and - most of all - improve your English skills!
