The Centre

Twin English Centre Eastbourne is located in the town's centre, a two-minute walk from the railway station, bus stops, the main shopping centre, restaurants and cinemas. The seafront and beaches, museum, parks and theatres are all within ten minutes walking distance.

The main school's building is part of an attractive group of buildings that date back to the end of the 19th century.

As well as its bright, comfortable classrooms the school also provides students with a study centre, a small library and a common room containing comfortable sofas and a wide-screen television.

Students can also buy hot and cold drinks as well as snacks from a small tuck shop. Free Wi-Fi is available. At the front of the building is an outdoor area with benches where students can sit and relax during break times.

Within 100 metres of the school, there is a selection of cafés and sandwich shops serving hot and cold food in addition to light meals at very reasonable prices.

Eastbourne is full of fun things to see and do outside the classroom. Whether you want to spend time in the school or exploring the town and wider area, there is always something to do, such as:

  • Enjoying a barbeque on the beach
  • Walking along the sea front and paddling in the sea
  • Spending an evening at the cinema or theatre
  • Playing tennis, golf or learning to windsurf
  • Spending time with friends, enjoying activities on the social programme
  • Visiting the harbour or walking over to the scenic Beachy Head

Support and Welfare

Our Student Services team is dedicated to ensuring that you have an enjoyable stay in the UK. We understand how important safe and comfortable accommodation is for you and we select our homestay hosts carefully to be sure you have a great place you can call home.

Please note that if you are aged 16/17 and enrol on one of our courses, you will join a class of adult students. A high level of support is provided for students under 18, including a separate induction and weekly welfare tutorials. Parents/guardians will be informed of lateness or unauthorized absence from class. Students aged 16/17 are not normally supervised outside of class time and will be responsible for their own safety, although Twin will provide guidelines.

Our student services team will:

  • Give you accommodation advice
  • Deliver an induction programme
  • Give you a student identity card
  • Help you to get a mobile phone and internet access
  • Provide you with ongoing support and monitoring throughout the programme
  • Offer you counselling or advice on issues such as healthcare and travel
