About the School & Courses

Meridian School of English is a small school with a friendly atmosphere. Our aim is to provide each student with the type of course most suited to his or her needs while finding time to pay attention to each student’s welfare out of class.


Southsea is in the mildest part of Britain and enjoys a relatively kind climate. It is an attractive holiday resort with two piers, a fine bathing beach and all facilities for sport and cultural activities. Ten minutes walk from the school are the recently built, spectacular Millennium Tower and Gunwharf Quays, an exciting waterfront shopping and leisure complex with designer shopping outlets, cinemas, bars and restaurants.


Meridian School has a wide range of interactive facilities for our language students, from HD TVs and DVD players, to wi-fi internet access and computers in every class. We have many self-access materials and listening units, as well as extra practice exercises in grammar, reading and vocabulary. There is also a large choice of readers for students to take home and use to continue their studies! Our student room has computer access, coffee and tea making facilities and microwave.

Social Programme

Meridian School runs social trips and excursions every week, with Saturday excursions always available as long as we have enough students interested. In July and August we have activities most weekday evenings and a full-day excursion every Saturday. Our teachers usually act as social organizers for our events so they can continue to help you with your English even when you’re in the bowling alley or seeing the sights in London.

Minimum Age

The minimum age for adult courses is sixteen.


The school is happy to arrange accommodation for students according to the students’ wishes. We encourage students to stay with English host families as this is the best way to have the maximum of conversation practice out of class. Families provide their guests with breakfast and evening meal every day plus lunch on Saturday and Sunday. All host families are carefully selected and inspected by a member of the staff. Self-catering accommodation is also available.
