"St Giles is a very good place to have the first experience of studying English in another country because Eastbourne is a safe, quiet and small area with very friendly people willing to help with whatever you need. The school is welcoming and I had an excellent teacher who has knowledge of various cultures which is very important when trying to explain the British culture and the English Language." - Jennifer, Colombia.

About Eastbourne

Eastbourne is a popular tourist destination and one of Britain’s sunniest towns. The town’s main attractions are the beautiful beach and the coastline, which students can enjoy both in summer and throughout the rest of the year. Beachy Head and the beautiful South Downs National Park are close by, as is the picturesque town of Lewes.

Although Eastbourne offers a relaxed alternative to the fast pace of city life, students will still find it easy to see more of the UK – Brighton is just over half an hour away by train, while Central London can be reached within an hour and a half.
