English for young learners in Torquay
English courses for young learners in Torquay
Our English school in Torquay, Devon, is set in one of the UK’s most beautiful locations, in the middle of a scenic stretch of coastline. Young learners aged 12-17 can experience the lovely seaside town of Torquay: an active, friendly, safe place — famous for its spectacular views, beautiful beaches, cliffs and lively marina.
There are plenty of things to keep our students busy, as well as great school facilities to learn in, from a beginner to an advanced level. The school has a large garden and terrace to make the most of the summer sunshine, and our homestay accommodation program means students can stay with a local family and immerse themselves in the language.
