About Torbay, England

Study in Torbay

The popular tourist hub of Torbay is formed by the three beautiful coastal cities of Torquay, Paignton and Brixham, located on the Devon Coast in southwestern England. The warm microclimate of the area, the golden beaches, the palm trees and the elegant sport marinas have given it the fitting name of the English Riviera. Students are attracted by the relaxed, welcoming atmosphere, the beach lifestyle and the watersports.

The school is situated just five minutes from the center of Paignton, an enjoyable coastal tourist center, with an impressive backdrop of beautiful cliffs and fine-sand beaches. The school has excellent facilities that, along with spacious classrooms, include a student lounge, cafeteria, garden and bookstore.

The most common accommodation option is in a host family. We visit our participating families often to make sure the student feels at home. They are carefully selected and provide a warm and welcoming environment for students. The family option provides you with either a single or double room. The meal plan is half-board for every day of the week.
