Learn English by the sea

Welcome To Meridian School Of English

Language school in the historic coastal city of Plymouth

Our English language school in Plymouth is British Council accredited and all of our teachers have many years of experience teaching both at home and abroad.

Our Courses

Maximum 8 students per class!

Learn by speaking

After a level test, you will be put into a class that matches your level and needs. Our classes are engaging with a focus on a communication based approach.

Personal attention

Because class sizes are small (no more than 8 students), your teachers can get to know you personally. They will regularly ask for your feedback on classroom activities and topics.  

Develop your confidence

Language study will develop your confidence in your use of English, expanding your vocabulary and improving your pronunciation.

Wide variety of activities

You will learn and practice new language through a wide variety of fun activities, discovery tasks, role plays and projects, using video, audio and printed materials.


English host families

Accommodation that meets your needs


At Meridian we can offer a variety of accommodation options to ensure students get the best out of their time studying with us. Usually this will be within walking distance of the school and is carefully chosen and monitored to ensure high standards are maintained.

We also offer 24-hour emergency phone support.



Staying in a homestay is, without doubt, the best way to further develop your English and generally learn about the British way of life. You will stay with a local English family that is used to welcoming foreign students into their home.
