Set in the residential area of Highgate, which is known for its charming English gardens and 18th century architecture, our partner school provides a very pleasant setting for an English course, just a 20-minute tube ride from the heart of the British capital. Thanks to the exciting excursions offered by the school, you will be able to enjoy, in turn, the peaceful atmosphere of Highgate Village or the vibrant animation of Central London, where Big Ben, Oxford Street, Tower Bridge and many other fascinating attractions await. The English classes take place in a beautiful Victorian house equipped with 23 classrooms, a large library, a language lab and a multimedia room. During breaks, the young learners can socialise in the conservatory or in the quiet garden of the centre and enjoy an international atmosphere – ideal for practising English!

A 10 minutes de la station métro et du bus, dans un espace calme et verdoyant ! Excellent endroit pour travailler "sans bruit" Professeurs et responsables très à l'écoute Femme charmante et attentionnée. Répond aux questions, accompagne jusqu'à la station de bus la première fois et aide à acheter la carte magnétique pour les déplacements à un prix raisonnable. Excellente cuisinière. Un petit défaut: change d'humeur régulièrement ...

« Je pense avoir progresser dans ma prononciation et dans l'ouverture vers les autres jeunes qui était très difficile pour moi avant. J'ai aussi grandi autonomie grâce à la liberté que nous possédions avec votre organisme et l'école. Chaque élève allait où il souhaitait avec qui il voulait. C'est très bien ! »
School highlights
« - La liberté que nous disposions !! :)) Elle nous permet de grandir en autonomie, à vaincre certaines peurs (comme prendre le métro ou le bus seule) - Le cadre de vie de l'école, très charmant et verdoyant - La rencontre avec d'autres jeunes maintenant et encore, des amis. Cela nous permet de nous ouvrir aux autres et voir qu'il y a des personnes bien dans ce monde, mis à part nos proches. - Me retrouver dans une famille d’accueil très agréable et de rencontrer une autre fille, devenue ma "big hostsister" »

Agréable séjour passé à Londres. Les cours étaient agréables de part le faible nombre d’étudiants dans chaque salle. Cours vivants et intéressants. Il est facile de progresser même en y passant qu'une semaine ! Je recommande fortement cette école. Le seul bémol était le transfert de la famille à l'aéroport ( taxi non agréé et très cher pour la prestation ) Rien à dire Rien à dire Très gentille dame qui sait bien cuisiner

Host family
Host families are carefully selected by our partner school to offer you an enriching cultural experience and a safe setting during your stay in England. You will stay in a single room and share the common areas with your hosts. This option includes half board. Immersing yourself in the daily life of an English family allows you to learn more about the local customs and traditions while practising English in a relaxed manner. As far as possible, the school endeavours not to place two students of the same mother tongue into the same family.

The school’s rich and varied leisure programme allows students to participate in three social activities per week. Activities include sport, culture and shopping, but also barbecues, bowling, disco parties and karaoke. Of course, you will also discover London’s greatest attractions, which are just around 20 minutes away with the tube. Supervised by the school staff, admire the landmarks of power that are Downing Street, Buckingham Palace and the Houses of Parliament, take walks in Hyde Park or Regent’s Park, and enjoy unlimited shopping options in and around the capital. At weekends, excursions will be offered to visit some of the most beautiful university towns in England, including Oxford, Canterbury and Cambridge.
