We wanted to open in January 2021 but we went into Tier 4, and then lockdown.  So now we are closed until the government tell us we can open again. 
I hope to have more news in February.

Student Testimonials

Having studied at this school was an excellent experience for me. The atmosphere is amazing, the staff are so professional and helpful. The teachers are excellent and I had the opportunity not only to improve my English, but also the chance to get to know the culture in the UK and made new friends from different countries. I am so grateful to The English Language Centre, I feel more confident now. Kate’s school has contribute a lot to my life, that’s why I recommend it, the TELC exceeded my expectations. You will not regret :) I loved it.
