Two full day excursions (including all entry fees) twice a week, usually every Wednesday and Sunday. A trip to London is always included. A varied sports and social programme is on offer during the afternoons and evenings for students.

We recognise that the 16+ age group appreciates flexibility and more independence and students will have the freedom to explore Eastbourne and surrounding areas with friends in their leisure time. Some of these outings could be unsupervised (parental permission is required for this if a student is under the age of 18).


Our professional and dedicated staff, many of whom return year after year, are chosen for their experience with older students and they ensure an exciting but safe environment. Students have two options as to accommodation:

  • Stay at the Eastbourne centre itself and be accommodated in luxurious twin-bedded rooms with beautiful en-suite bathrooms (single rooms may be available on request for an additional supplement). Our staff will be resident at the Eastbourne Centre. They will eat meals with the students and share much of their activity and leisure time.
  • or
  • Stay at stay in beautiful town houses located in the town centre just minutes from the seafront and Eastbourne Centre where English lessons are held. Our town houses provide excellent accommodation with large double bedrooms, fully fitted kitchens and communal lounges where all the students can get together and socialise.

We aim to provide a memorable experience for our students, where they can make friends from all over the world while developing their English language skills and having fun.
