Your Learning Experience

Severnvale Academy was established in 1982 and is now owned and run by husband and wife team Ed (Managing Director) & Caroline  (Principal & Director). Together with a very motivated team of experienced and highly skilled teachers, we all work hard to make sure that your experience here benefits from our extensive wealth of knowledge.

As an independent language school, Severnvale Academy promotes a relaxed but highly engaging professional learning environment with a clear emphasis on personal welfare and development. You will enjoy a varied social programme at least twice a week where you will sample the local culture and practice your language with fellow students and staff out of the classroom. Your course here will involve much more than classroom lessons, our personalised approach to your experience means your individual needs will be recognised and met with a tailored programme.

    INSPIRATIONAL teaching…

    Is something we have all experienced at one time or another in our lives. It depends on experienced teachers understanding your individual needs as a learner; and then having the flexibility and skill to adapt to them, helping you learn as much as possible. We have a team of such teachers – enthusiastic, qualified and caring – and have developed courses and teaching methods which inspire, motivate, and most of all, deliver the language progress you want.
