About Us

It’s hard sometimes to know where to start. We are located in such a beautiful part of the country in the South East of the UK, in the ancient town of Hastings which dates back to before William the Conqueror sailed across the channel for a look at the little island to the North! Our base is a 60 room ensuite building set in the famous Warrior Square where old Queen Vic looks out across her (former) empire.

The boys have access to the beach, the woods, fields and countryside. Fresh air and all in a beautiful Victorian building oozing with character. Yet central London is only an hour and a half away by train and Brighton is a short forty minute hop along the coast when shopping and big city entertainment is the order of the day.

We prioritise the well being and development of all the people that visit us for short or long term courses and take pride in our excellent feedback from students and parents.

The team is an important part of why we are successful so there is a little info below:
