Cheltenham is a vibrant and exciting small English town, based in the heart of the Cotswolds. The Cotswolds is an area of outstanding natural beauty and those who come find themselves falling in love with the area.

Here you can improve your English in pleasant and tranquil surroundings, yet still be within a short train ride of many of the biggest cities of the UK. You really have the best of both worlds here.

We are the only private English language school locally, which provides maximum exposure to the language, culture and people.

Cheltenham has a population of 120,000 and the people who live here are predominately English in this very 'typical' English town. The people of Cheltenham have no discernible accent, so the English spoken is clear and understandable.

In addition to your training programme, you will have the chance to take full advantage of the wide range of cultural, social and sporting events that Cheltenham offers and experience all aspects of English life and culture!

The school is based in the centre of Cheltenham, only 50 metres away from the High Street. Accommodation for students is either a walk or a short bus journey away. Students will be impressed how quick and easy it is to get around the town.
