I'd second the Compass Sea School suggestion, Geoff and the guys down there are excellent.

If the two schools already mentioned can't accommodate
have a look at the RYA website for schools in your area
www.rya.org.uk

Sure you will find something although a recommendation from others will usually make up your mind.
