It is with great sadness that we announce the closure of Wessex Academy Ltd. after almost 40 years. We wish to apologise to everyone affected by the closure. Unfortunately the long-term student numbers have dropped significantly since the autumn of 2013 and we can no longer carry on trading. To avoid unnecessary difficulties for students we have arranged for almost all students to be transferred to Anglo European School Of English 77 Lansdowne Road, Bournemouth BH1 1RW

As a member of EnglishUK, the Student Emergency Support Fund will cover the cost of any accommodation payments that have been received in advance. The emergency fund will become available next week. If you have any further questions regarding your situation please contact EnglishUK on

We have contacted all the agents and host families of existing and future students explaining our position and the alternative arrangements we have made to try and reduce the impact of our closure.

We would like to express our sincerest gratitude to everyone who has shown their support for the Wessex Academy over the last 40 years, Students, host-families and agents and to Mr Brian Brownlee the owner of Anglo European School of English who has generously offered to take our students to complete their courses.
