Southampton Year-Round Junior Centre

Based at the Lewis School of English

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.

With big, beautiful parks, Titanic history, Premier League football and two universities, Southampton is a great place to live and study. Our school is right in the centre, opposite a park and just 2 minutes from the main shopping area. London is only 75 minutes by train, and you can easily reach Stonehenge, Oxford, Bath, Isle of Wight, the New Forest and many more of England’s treasures. We look forward to welcoming you here!

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.
