Southampton Summer Junior Centre

Cruise ships, beautiful parks, home of Lewis School!

Southampton is a commercial centre and university city on the south coast, and is internationally famous for sailing, cruise ships and the Titanic. It is one of the greenest cities in England, has a Premier League football team and, with a population of 250,000, is neither too big nor too small. Southampton is also the hometown of the Lewis School.

We generally operate a zigzag timetable for certain busiest weeks.  This means that one week, your English lessons will be in the morning and the following week, they will be in the afternoon, or vice-versa. Look for your house colour on the timetable.
