This is a prestigious, highly-professional school, with a big heart and a warm welcome for everyone, due in no small part to the many members of staff who have worked there for upwards of 10, 20 or even 30 years. 

Since 1972, students aged from 16 to 80+, from over 65 different countries, have taken advantage of the many courses the school offers - from General English to a wide variety of courses in English for Business and Professional purposes.  Many students return time after time, often recommending it to their family and friends.  In some cases, the three generations of the same family have been welcomed at the school.

The school is located just a few minutes on foot from Torquay town centre and is surrounded by large gardens and a volley ball court, with its own hotel residence opposite the school.
