100 years of language training
2012 is a big year for The London School of English as it marks the centenary year for the school. A series of events, activities and projects is planned to highlight the importance of language and communication skills training around the world and, of course, to celebrate 100 years of language training.
The London School of English is also particularly delighted to be the Platinum Sponsor of StudyWorld London 2012.
100 years in the business has given the school a wealth of experience in English language training. The school has grown from its original modest premises off Oxford Street to a centre with a strong reputation for excellence in language, communication skills and training with several locations in the UK and overseas.
The school was one of the founding members of English UK in 1960. Then in 1969 The London School of English moved to its current premises in the exclusive district of Holland Park. Since then, it has developed a wide range of English language courses covering business, law, several ESP programmes, young professionals courses, academic English and, of course, intensive general English courses. More recently, Cross-Cultural Training and Voice Training have been introduced. Although the school has grown significantly, it remains firmly focused on providing the very highest levels of customer service and quality of training – both of which are central to the school’s reputation and success.
It's been a busy year for The London School of English, with two government inspections. The school achieved eight points of excellence in their June British Council inspection and in October was inspected by the Independent Schools Inspectorate (ISI). The school was the first to be inspected under the ISI scheme and was rated as ‘exceeds expectations’ in all areas of the inspection which covered:
- The quality of the curriculum, teaching and learners achievement
- Students’ welfare including health and safety
- The effectiveness of governance and management

Despite the economic challenges that lie ahead, the school remains positive and looks ahead to the next century and further growth.
