The city of Salisbury is one of the most visited in England, due to its proximity to the magnificent Stonehenge.
It is a centenary city and has always been a very cultural place. The city is more than 750 years old, but today in its streets there are modern shops, pubs, and above all one of the best Cathedrals in the country.
Ken Follett was inspired by the construction of this Cathedral for his best seller: The Pillars of the Earth.

The school organises many activities in the afternoons and at the weekend.
Participating in activities isn´t obligatory, however it is a good way to practice your English outside the classroom. They organise trips around the city, visits to the Cathedral or to the museums in the city. They also organise trips to historical buildings in the city, afternoons shopping and full day excursions to other cities such as Bath, Stonehenge, Bristol and London.
A familiar, relaxed and caring atmosphere is perfect for learning English. All of the families in Salisbury have been carefully selected; they offer full board, laundry service and a warm and welcoming environment.
The host family can be a single woman, an older couple or a couple with children; living with a family will give you the opportunity to live the British culture, whilst practicing English with natives after class.
The students will be in double bedrooms. The bathrooms are shared with members of the family, as well as the living room and other common areas. The majority of the families live in nice residential neighbourhoods with a garden. The families that live in the centre usually live in apartments.
You must remember that 2 identical families do not exist, so each situation is unique. However, the team at the school and ourselves are always aware and will do our best to make sure that the students are happy at all times.
We also offer the "plus" option: ideal for professionals or students that are looking for a higher standard. This option offers accommodation in a single room with ensuite.
