We'll give you chances to use your English outside the classroom

Teaching English classes is only part of what we do.  As an English school in the UK, we believe that it is important  to find opportunities for you to use your English outside the classroom. We do this by providing:

  Great homestay families 

  A sightseeing programme that allows you to use your English

  Talking Towns: a network of independent shops and businesses whose owners will give you an insight into life in Durham

Our School
