ESOE celebrates 80 years of teaching English in Eastbourne

Eastbourne School of English celebrates 80 years of English language teaching in 2016 and will mark this special birthday throughout the year with parties, special events, scholarships and prizes.

ESOE was established in 1936 by Miss Frances Batchelor, whose dream was to encourage young people to learn English and to build friendships between the nations of the world. It became a not-for-profit educational charity in 1966, which ensured the future of the school as a champion for the highest standards in English language teaching. Today, Eastbourne School of English is still one of the leading schools in the UK.

Upgraded facilities for landmark year

ESOE starts 2016 with improved facilities: new IWBs/ActiveBoards, completely refurbished restrooms in the main building, and a refurbished study centre.

Academic staff at ESOE continue Miss Batchelor’s dream

Jenny Johnson, Academic Manager, will talk at IATEFL Conference in Birmingham in April 2016. ESOE has also provided two scholarships to support teachers to attend the conference.

Rolf Donald, Assistant Academic Manager, has won a Platt Prize from University of Manchester. Rolf recently completed a Masters in Technology and ELT and was awarded the Platt for outstanding achievement in a Masters’ degree course.
