About Us

We are a specialist provider of English language courses. These can be combined with a holiday designed to include activities and interests that give our students a full experience of English life and culture. We are based near the beautiful market town of Horsham, in West Sussex, providing a base in the English countryside but with easy access to both London and Brighton.

We welcome visitors from all over the world and teach English at all levels from beginner to advanced.  We can arrange accommodation from a comfortable range of hotels and self catering options, including the option of ‘home stay’ for complete immersion. The holidays also offer a wide range of sport, leisure and cultural activities to allow students to practice their English with English people while doing the things they enjoy.

We can offer you total immersion in the English language and English life. We are passionate about where we live and want wholeheartedly to share it with you during your stay.

Our Team

Our Team includes experienced and qualified English language teachers and ‘buddies’.  Our teachers all have qualifications and experience in addition to their English teaching qualifications which we believe is important to enrich the learning experience and to cater for the wide range of people who enjoy our courses. Our ‘buddies’ are selected by us for their friendly approach and genuine enthusiasm in helping you practise English.
