Summer Family Course

Loxdale English Centre is the perfect school for an educational holiday which will suit the whole family. It is a fantastic opportunity for your children to meet other international young learners and you will enable you to spend time with your children whilst following your own interests.

We recognise that every family is different and therefore can offer you a course which can be tailor made to suit you! On your first day at Loxdale you will have a meeting with the Principal, Anna Thatcher, to talk about the options for you and your children during your study holiday.

During the summer we welcome both adult and young learners with any level of English. Whilst your children are busy enjoying either the pre-teen (8-12 years) or teenage (13-17 years) English lessons, you will be free to attend your own classes with other international adult students.

During the summer Loxdale works in partnership with another Brighton school, English Language Centre (ELC). Our adult courses are run by ELC and young learner courses are run by Loxdale English Centre. Both courses take place at Loxdale English Centre so you will be studying at the same site as your children.

You can be confident that whenever you are taking part in your activities, your children will always be supervised and well looked after.
