The beautiful city of Bath is a UNESCO World Heritage city because of its worldfamous Roman spa complex and the architectural importance of its stunning Georgian city centre. The city became a fashionable spa resort in the 18th century and has been one of Britain’s most popular tourist destinations ever since. Prior Park College sits in landscaped gardens overlooking the city. It was built around the mansion house built for the entrepreneur Ralph Allen, who was responsible for the construction of much of the city centre. Prior Park offers the perfect calm setting for our Extra English course and offers Trinity GESE exams and preparation.

  • 15 hours of teaching per week from qualified teachers including project work to allow them to use their English creatively and learn more about British culture and history
  • A certificate on completion of their course
