The school is highly academic but you will also have a good time! We produce most of our own textbooks and supplementary materials. The involvement of our senior teachers in these projects creates a stimulating academic environment in the school and is crucial in the provision of the high quality teaching we aspire to.

  • Our students: we have students of all ages from 16-90. School and college students, young professionals, executives and diplomats, teachers and retired people – all find themselves at home here.
  • Services: our catering services are open all day, there is wi-fi in all the common areas, the reception is staffed 24 hours per day and the study centre is open weekends as well as during the week.

For these reasons we receive clients and students from diplomatic corps, top companies and prestigious universities from around the world.

Our membership of EAQUALS and IALC and Accreditation by the Instituto Cervantes confirms this quality.
