Hampstead School of English, London

Hampstead School of English“Since our foundation in 1977, we have become one of London’s premier English language schools. In that time, we have added new courses, accommodation and facilities, while maintaining the key to our original success – individual attention to each student.

Our enthusiastic teachers use up to date materials and teaching equipment, and our welcoming administrative staff are ready to help with any queries students may have.

The environment, both inside and outside the classroom, is friendly and relaxed and we all work as part of one team.  We are proud of the balance we have developed between high academic standards and friendly informality, and our students enjoy the family atmosphere paired with high quality facilities and English language tuition.

  • Help you with your studies in any possible way
  • Speak to you in a polite and patient manner
  • Solve any problem with your class, accommodation or welfare immediately, or tell you when it will be solved
  • Encourage you to make the most of your time in London
