Totnes is a small, safe and welcoming town with a vibrant and stimulating social scene, where foreign students fit right in.
It is an important centre for music, art, theatre, and natural medicine. The melting pot of traditional and alternative cultures results in a unique atmosphere, which is also found at school, in the homes of host families and in afterschool activities.
Street performers and musicians, the open-air market on Fridays and Saturdays, and the main thoroughfare lined with quaint little shops, restaurants, bars and cafés combine to give the town a unique energetic vibe. Everything is within easy walking distance, which means you hardly ever need to take public transport.
Totnes is beautiful and packed with charm, the surrounding area is amazing and nestled amongst unspoilt nature.
The school is housed in a historical building, the Gate House, which, as the name suggests, was once the ancient gate to the mediaeval town.
