We were founded in 1968 and moved to this residential area of Brighton in 1979.
We are British Council accredited.
Our aim is to inspire life-long English learning for all our students. We support you in achieving your goals while you study in our warm and friendly environment. We do this by constantly refining our methods and giving you opportunities to individualise your learning. We regularly give our teachers and staff opportunities for developing their methods and training so that their knowledge and experiences can motivate our students.
Excellent Value for Money
As an educational charity Loxdale English Centre in Brighton is proud to be considered as excellent value for money. In fact the EL Gazette named Loxdale English Centre as one of the top Language schools in the UK in this category for 2016 and we aim to ensure that our students get the best value on their course fees. As an educational charity we exist to give as many people as possible the opportunity to study English in the UK so keep our prices as low as we can.
Superior On-site Facilities
We moved to this residential area of Brighton in 1979, in part, to have more space and facilities for our students. The school is housed in a beautiful Victorian mansion surrounded by a natural garden and trees set in beautiful surroundings. On site we have a sports hall, homely dining room (seats 120), computer rooms, library, self-study centre, common rooms and a music room (at certain times of the year). The large garden has plenty of room for games of football, volleyball and badminton and socialising.
Most of our teachers have many years of experience teaching EFL and, with the variety of courses we offer, they are able to keep their ideas and teaching methods fresh and relevant. Without ever losing sight of the traditional aspects of English grammar, reading and writing, they also prepare students for the everyday challenges the use of English presents to our students. As part of our Safeguarding Policy, all our staff all have regular training, DBS checks (police checks) and references taken.
Many of our homestay providers have been with us for many years and all live within a 25 minute walk from the school. Chosen for the quality of their accommodation and the warmth of their hosting, our Accommodation Officer is fantastic at choosing the right student for the right hosts. In 2018 only 2% of students asked to change to another host. All homestays are regularly visited by us and our checks include references, gas safety checks and for those hosting young learners, police checks.
An Exciting Social Programme
Learning doesn’t only take place in the classroom so taking part in a wide variety of activities will help you use your English in everyday situations and learn new skills. From arts and crafts, baking, barbeques, quiz & film evenings to weekend trips to London, Oxford, Salisbury, Cambridge and local areas of interest, we offer something for everyone. It’s important to us that you try and do as much as possible during your stay. It’s the perfect way of making the most of your course and putting your English into practice.
Great Transport Links
Loxdale has a unique advantage of being in a quiet residential suburb of Brighton (Portslade) and yet within easy reach of Brighton centre, one of the most vibrant and exciting cities in the UK. Brighton is a famous seaside city with lots to do and see and an active nightlife for adult students. London is just over an hour away on the train and the South Downs, a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty is just on our doorstep.
