English School in Bournemouth, the UK's Happiest Town
Our newest English school is conveniently situated in the very centre of Bournemouth, so our students literally have all the shops, pubs and clubs on their doorstep. Just a 2-minute walk from the Lower Gardens and a 5-minute walk from the beach and pier, there is no location more central to Bournemouth than this!
Just a stone's throw away from some of Britain's most prized areas, places of interest include Poole Harbour, the world's second largest natural harbour after Sydney, and the Jurassic coast, a world heritage site well known for its beauty and geological importance. The New Forest is only 20 minutes away and is renowned for its stunning landscape and wildlife where horses roam freely and visitors can enjoy the many bike trails and walks.
Bournemouth has a cosmopolitan population and is home to Bournemouth University, the UK's number 1 new university according to the Guardian University Guide 2009 & 2010. Small wonder that Bournemouth has time and again been voted the UK's happiest town! (source: BBC News)
