Our Four Key Values

Our success is based on a commitment to our four key values. We promise to offer all our students:

From the moment you arrive, until the day you leave us, we make it our job to ensure your stay is as smooth, comfortable and enjoyable as possible

A warm welcome:

On your first day, it will take you no time to settle in. We have a full induction schedule that will help you make the most of your studies, including:

  • A tour of the school and introduction to the staff
  • A functional walking tour of the local area
  • Help on how to register with the police and a doctor, and how to open a bank account
  • Help with finding your nearest religious or cultural organisations
  • Our specially designed student handbooks will also be a very useful reference throughout your stay.

There for you:

We will be happy to guide you through everything you need to know and do from the moment you enquire until you move onto the next stage of your life:

  • Visa application and renewal help
  • Airport transfers
  • Expert education advice for further study
  • 24-hour emergency phone assistance
  • Monthly meetings with academic staff to discuss your progress.

Have fun and make friends:

We have a dedicated team of activity organisers who work year-round to keep our students entertained:

  • Weekend trips to local cities
  • Regular outings to the cinema, bowling and concerts
  • Sports, games and parties in school.

Our teachers are the best thing about Stafford House. They have experience teaching in the UK or abroad and regularly participate in training to improve their skills. They take student feedback weekly so they can adapt the course to suit the needs of the class.

Diploma qualified teachers:

A high proportion of our teachers hold Diploma-level teaching qualifications. These advanced, postgraduate qualifications recognise their commitment to the highest levels of teaching English teaching and demonstrate our dedication to ensuring our students receive the best experience possible.

Personalised teaching:

In addition to regular, personal feedback from your teacher, each month you will have a meeting with a senior member of staff. From this you will have the opportunity to discuss your changing needs and ensure you’re on-track to achieve your absolute best.

Small class sizes:

An average of 10, but never more than 14. This means you will develop a closer relationship with your teacher than in other schools and will experience a faster pace of improvement in your English language development. If you think you would benefit from an even more personal approach, why not book some of our one-to-one lessons?

Choosing a course can be difficult. You may not know which course or location you would prefer. Many of our students want to move from one city to another, or switch course halfway through their stay. With us, you can keep your options open.

Exceptional learning environments:

All four of our schools have been designed to the highest specifications. You will learn in fresh and bright classrooms, with up-to-date learning technology and modern conveniences, including IT suites, high-speed WiFi, comfortable student lounges and cafes (London and Canterbury). All of our schools also offer book-loaning schemes so you can extend your learning outside of the classroom.

Interactive technology:

We have invested in the latest classroom technology. You will benefit from top of the range interactive whiteboards, bringing the internet, HD video and social networking into your lessons. This helps us to provide classes that are relevant, interesting, and interactive and that will prepare you to communicate effectively in English in the real world.

Hand-picked accommodation:

We place great importance on making sure your home life is as happy and comfortable as your school life. We have a broad range of accommodation options available, including modern residences, friendly and welcoming homestays and comfortable student houses.
