What our students say about us
Younes was absolutely delighted. His English family was welcoming and caring during these two weeks. Classes were interesting and afternoon activities well adapted, allowing him to get in touch with many young people from different countries.
It's been a pleasure to spend two lovely weeks at Sidmouth International School. All my students have enjoyed a lot and their host families were wonderful to them. It has been a great experience and we will repeat again next summer.
My son came back delighted, the atmosphere of the school, his family stay, the leadership; everything was wonderful!
Very quick responses to emails, a solution for every problem/question. Bus service from door to door – luxury!
Thank you for Pauline’s great time in England! She returned so happy and satisfied. Her English has improved significantly and she dreams of coming back next year.
I wanted to thank you for the incredible week I have spent in Sidmouth. The family has been really kind with me, they tried to teach me and much as they could. I also loved the school and the great teachers that I met. I made a lot of new friends from different countries and I learnt a lot from them.
It couldn’t be better. I always got the impression your school works very professionally. I was really involved in family life. All my expectations were met. 100 points from the beginning to the end!
We spent a wonderful time, both leaders and students were happy to the utmost, enjoyed themselves thoroughly, and it could not have been much better.
The teachers are some of the best I have ever had. Enthusiastic, qualified, great communicators, funny, kind and helpful. Simply excellent.
