English school in Bournemouth

Candy-colored beach huts, fairground rides on the pier and hot salty chips – visit the classic English seaside town

Our Bournemouth school

Seven miles of golden sands, imposing cliffs and sunny weather have made Bournemouth a favorite British holiday spot since Victorian times. With its award-winning gardens and spectacular views of the Isle of Wight, no wonder Bournemouth has been voted the best seaside town in England – and the fourth best in Europe!

  • Relaxing private garden and large common room onsite – socialize whatever the weather
  • Our Bournemouth English school is our largest school in the UK - it is in a modern building just five minutes’ bus ride from the beach and the town center
  • Our new Kaplan student residence is housed in the tallest building in Bournemouth with great views of the town and the sea
