There was a nice atmosphere between the students and with the teacher. The school has excellent methods to teach English.

High quality general, business and professional courses for elite students.

Founded in 1912, we are the oldest officially-recognised English language school in the world with two buildings, both in excellent residential districts in London.

Our Westcroft Square centre is a modern building with bright, stylish rooms and excellent facilities. It is located in a pleasant, safe, residential and shopping area only about 20 minutes on a direct subway line from the centre of London. Students here are a little older than in many schools – your guarantee of a serious, useful course, and ideal for someone learning for Higher Education or for their career.

At Westcroft Square we offer Intensive General English programmes, English for University and exam preparation including IELTS. All courses are full-time and intensive, ensuring rapid progress.

All courses include a good quality lunch, completely free. Students also have access to free on-line learning from the date of enrolment until 3 months after their course finishes and regular networking sessions in the school.


Cambridge First Certificate in English (FCE) Exam Practice

First Certificate in English shows that your ability to use English is at the upper intermediate level, or level B2 according to The Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR).

Cambridge First Certificate in English is well-known and recognised in over 100 countries worldwide and may be valuable for your international professional career and studies abroad.

The First Certificate in English course is conducted by high quality teachers in a positive and friendly atmosphere.

40 minutes from school on public transport
Minimum age — 18
Breakfast only

Homestay combines quality, friendliness and very good value for money. It is suitable both for people who want a lot of contact with their host and also for those who prefer to be free and independent.

All our accommodation is of high quality and close to our schools – often just a short walk, and never more than a 40-minute journey by foot or public transport. Since it is all in the same part of London our students are often reasonably close to each other.

We take great care in selecting our homestay accommodation. We visit each host family before using them, and continue to visit regularly. Being in constant touch with our hosts means that we get to know them very well and that also helps us to match clients with hosts. And because many have been working with us for several years, they understand that we have high expectations.

We will usually arrange for you to stay with the same host throughout, but it may be necessary for you to stay with more than one host during your stay.

Importantly, we also carefully check feedback to make sure that course participants who stay in homestay are happy and that standards remain high. In 2013 our average accommodation feedback for homestay was 4.4 out of 5.
