CHANNEL SCHOOL OF ENGLISH is located in Ilfracombe, a small seaside town on the North Devon coast in the south-west of England. It is an ideal place to learn English, offering a safe, clean and green environment for young people. Channel School of English offers accommodation with local host families where students share day-to-day family activities, giving a unique opportunity for involvement in a different culture and way of life.
Channel School of English is situated in Bicclescombe Park (Ilfracombe town’s major park); with children’s play area, landscaped gardens, public café, lakes and tennis courts, which are used for our Tennis Programme and tennis tournaments.
The school gardens include a decked, covered area where students can congregate and eat their packed lunches at the tables provided. We also have barbecues at lunchtimes where students can purchase hot food and a vending machine for confectionary and cold drinks.
Channel School has an internet area where students can send emails home and have online chats to friends.
Parental controls are in place and use of the internet is free. Places are reserved by writing their name against a 10 minute slot, enough time to email parents or friends.
During lunch breaks students can use our footballs, rugby balls, volleyballs, tennis rackets and balls for use on the park tennis courts. There is no charge for this service, although students are asked to leave their identity cards as a deposit, which is returned once the borrowed items are brought back in good condition. There are other games (such as Casino games, giant Jenga and Connect 4) which students can borrow during breaks.
