Your Learning Centre
Your learning centre, or “The Chicken Shed” as it is known by staff and students, is located a minute’s walk away from the main house, next to the golf course. The building houses sixteen private classrooms, the “boardroom” for presentation practice, a computer centre and communal area for your social learning breaks. In addition, our staff offices are also located here so we are always available for you during the day to help with any need or request you have. Wifi is provided throughout the building and your classrooms.
Your Private Classroom
Students classrooms are housed together in our learning centre. Each classroom comes fully equipped with materials and is insulated to provide an optimum environment for study and concentration. Each individual student or small group has their own private classroom, and this is yours to use exclusively, both inside and outside of formal study sessions, throughout your English immersion programme.
Sports and Leisure Facilities
In addition to your private ensuite accommodation, wifi and private classroom, we have many leisure facilities in our grounds to make your stay with us as productive as possible. These are all free to use and include:
- A 9 hole golf course
- Two all weather tennis courts
- Authentic Finnish Sauna
- Free use of bicycles and helmets to enjoy the surrounding countryside
- One grass tennis court (summer months only)
- Outdoor swimming pool (summer months only)

Your Complete learning experience
Your learning centre, accommodation, dining and leisure facilities as well as the whole of the Riversdown Estate have been carefully designed to maximise your learning. The environment at Riversdown is customised to ensure that you are as productive as possible and therefore that you get maximum return on your investment.
Our students learn more with us – and more quickly – because we and our fantastic team of teachers have built a place over the years which minimises distractions and maximises your enjoyment and motivation.
Immersion learning is a considerable investment for your organisation and for you as an individual. We understand this, which is why we aim to exceed the expectations of every single student who joins us. We continue to offer this service because we believe (and you, our students tell us) that at Riversdown we can offer real, deliverable results at great value. That is why some of the world’s leading corporations and organisations have been our partners for over thirty years, and many individuals return to us time and time again.
