About Osmington Bay

Osmington Bay on the south coast of England, is just two and a half hours from London. Overlooking the sea, the centre has direct access to the beach and uses the 2012 Olympic centre at nearby Portland Bay for some thrilling watersports programmes.

The centre grounds have plenty of adventure activities for students.  We have adventures on land and water for them to enjoy and it’s a great opportunity for them to practise their language skills.

Accommodation is in en suite lodges in the centre grounds overlooking the sea. The centre is well placed for excursions to places of interest including the historic city of Bath, the ancient monument at Stonehenge, and Corfe Castle.
