I have studied at Cavendish English School at summer 2016 during two weeks. It was good expecience nevertheless there were some disadvantages.

Cavendish School of English is very proud of the high standards of their English language courses.

Since 1983, Cavendish School of English Bournemouth has been providing expert English language training for students of all ages and nationalities. More than 200,000 students have benefited from our courses.

Our English language courses are student-centred and communicative, focusing on you, the learner and providing for all your language needs. Our staff, home stay hosts and teachers are all committed to making your stay at Cavendish School of English productive and enjoyable.

Located in Bournemouth, England, the school’s warm, family environment and its beautiful surroundings are guaranteed to make your stay delightful.

Top reasons why you should choose Cavendish School of English Bournemouth:

Family-run business with a caring and supportive environment.

We strive to ensure that our students are happy and relaxed. Getting to know each student by their name regardless of the group size is a priority for us. We are a family-run business with 6 family members actively involved with the day-to-day running of the school and we personally take responsibility for each student. We also have a Welfare Officer who is entirely dedicated to looking after Cavendish students.


Established in 1983, we have over 30 years of experience in teaching English to foreign students.

Numerous Fun-filled Activities

Summer camps are full of fun. We invite you to compare the number and quality of excursions we offer with those offered by other schools. Most schools will provide 3 – 4 excursions per 2 week stay. With us your students will enjoy 9 – 10 quality excursions within a 2 week stay. Excursions are the most expensive part of a summer camp, that’s why most schools will only provide a few of them. As we have our own coaches, we can afford to offer so many more excursions. Our experience over the years has taught us just what students want and we deliver.

Safety First!

In 2005, Bournemouth was voted the safest town for children in the whole of UK. Our staff and leaders are also trained ensuring that we comply to Health & Safety Standards at all times.


We hand-pick our home stay hosts to suit individual requirements. We know every host personally and are proud to say that we have the kindest, most caring hosts in Bournemouth.
