English school in Sydney Manly Beach

Golden sands and glittering waves: sunbathe while you study in Australia’s own Surf City

Our Sydney Manly Beach school

Take a short ferry-ride out of Sydney City, past stunning views of the harbor and coastline, and you’ll reach a carpet of velvety sand stretching along a pine-fringed shore. Manly is the birthplace of Australian surfing and still one of the world’s greatest surfing spots, thanks to the dramatic waves rolling in from the Pacific. Just around the headland, a path lined with unique sculptures leads to Shelly Beach, a sheltered cove with crystal waters perfect for scuba diving and snorkeling.

  • Our Sydney Manly Beach English school is five minutes’ walk from bus and ferry services to Sydney CBD and beyond from Manly Wharf
  • This school offers evening classes in Intensive English, Cambridge Exam and IELTS Exam preparation
  • The Manly school runs a packed program of activities including tours of the Sydney Opera House, volleyball on the beach and Surf Camp
