Country Cousins is the only English Language School in the World with a BRITISH COUNCIL AWARD OF EXCELLENCE. We are a family business and specialist Juniors English School located in North Devon, on the coast of South West of England, established in 1951.

In 2014, we won the British Council's ELTon award for Local Innovation. This was for our PALS scheme. We integrate local teenagers in our activities with our foreign students, it has proved very successful.

In 2017, in our British Council inspection, we got 29 strenghts in our report! Please see our 3 min. video at

We have a school (Channel School) open all year (students staying with carefully selected Host Families), and have our own fleet of buses. We are in Ilfracombe, between Exmoor National Park and Woolacombe beach (voted best beach in the UK by Tripadvisor for the last 5 years). This is a friendly and safe environment for children to enjoy our many activity programmes by the seaside; such as Adventure Sports, Riding, Tennis, Scuba Diving, Beach Volleyball, Sea Water Sports, Theatre Academy & Surfing.

Channel School of English is open for groups all year, with individuals able to book at Easter and summer periods. In the summer, we can only accept 6-17 year olds with a minimum stay of two weeks, but outside of peak season we can accept closed groups with a minimum stay of 4 days.
