IH Torquay

IH Torquay offers a variety of courses of English in a mature, international environment. In any year, we welcome students from over 40 different countries.

We are accredited by the British Council and a member of EAQUALS (European Association of Quality Language Services)

There are 20 classrooms, a Quiet Study Zone, student lounge, terrace and gardens. Most students walk to school from their accommodation, and our busy extra-curricular programme ensures you enjoy your free time and make friends.

Groups are small (maximum 4 or 12 students) and emphasis is placed on challenging students to progress as quickly as possible, in a friendly and supportive environment. We aim to do everything possible to help each of our students achieve their aims. We do this by listening carefully to your study history, your current situation and your plans and ambitions.

ONLINE CLASSES: During the current situation, we are offering on-line courses to our students, so that we can keep in touch with all of our wonderful IH family. Please contact us for details

The City

Torquay is an attractive and lively coastal town in the South West of the UK. There are two local airports (Exeter and Bristol) and London is two-and-a-half hours by train. Our destination offers a calm, peaceful place to study and improve your English. There is also always something to do. Torquay is set in a UNESCO Global Geopark, and close to two National Parks (Dartmoor and Exmoor). There are always many activities on offer related to the sea and beach, countryside and mountains. Torquay has many fine restaurants (one with a Michelin star) and bars, and throughout the year there are events and festivals taking place, such as the International Agatha Christie Festival, and the English Riviera Film Festival.
