Students will be tested to decide the best class level for their needs. We stream English Proficiency into groups of Beginner, Elementary (A1) and (A2)  Intermediate and Upper Intermediate (B1) & (B2) and Advanced and Proficiency English groups (C1 and C2). Students at C1 and C2 level can be placed on to our fluent speaker programme.


Fluent Speaker Programme

Students who are proficient English speakers at C1 and C2 level or equivalent, will follow a classroom-based programme of engaging topic work in English as opposed to the programme of English language lessons that our other students will follow in the mornings.


Project Classes

Held three times each week. Students work together on an educational and interesting project which draws on all their linguistic resources.



An important part of the education programme and students learn all about the places they visit and write about their trips and other activities in their Course Diaries, which they bring home for their parents to read.

Your esteemed school is a melting pot that gathers different nationalities and backgrounds to teach them new skills and empower them with a better use of the English language.

Tamara - Jordan

It was another great year! The first thing our daughter said when she arrived in Japan and saw her family was, ‘I had a great time and I want to go again!’

Akiko - Japan

We would like to thank Heathfield, for the language and cultural experience, and for the comfortable and homely atmosphere our daughter has been enjoying so much!

Irina - Russia

It has been for her an excellent experience both personally and from an academic point of view. She really enjoyed learning and practising English, meeting friends from other countries as well as all activities, especially Kayaking!

Teresa - France

The course was so good for my daughter. She enjoyed the style of teaching that is so different from home. Most important was 'English with Style' – she tried so many new things and learned so much English Culture.
