Torquay is the perfect location for kids and teens to relax, whilst immersing themselves in English. Students looking for entertainment can jump on the English Riviera Wheel to check out the sights, test their skills at Jungle Journey Adventure Golf, or visit the aquatic life at the zoo and aquarium. Football supporters can or go support Torquay United at the Plainmoor football stadium.

Our large centre offers panoramic sea views, with bright and spacious classrooms. Students on our summer camp program can enjoy the sunny weather in the large garden and outdoor terrace. There is a games room with console, pool table and board games. During the summer, students can also take a splash in our swimming pool in the backyard of the school!
