Why wait until summer? We welcome junior groups all year round at the Lewis School of English, Southampton. Our groups stay for 1-4 weeks and follow one of three programmes: Classic, English & Theatre and Cultural Week. Each of these can be tailor-made to suit the needs of your group.

Our school is based in four 18th-century buildings in Southampton city centre (for more information about our city, click here). We have 16 classrooms, and most have either a projector or screen with computer + Apple TV. Our Study Centre, with 8 computers, is also sometimes used as a classroom.
At the back of the school there are garden patios where you can relax in the sunshine or play table tennis. Indoors, we have a coffee room and mini-kitchen where you can buy snacks and hot or cold drinks. On colder days it’s the heart of the school! You will also find a prayer room in a quiet area of the school, and throughout the building there is a free Wi-Fi connection.
