English school in Liverpool

Once the maritime heart of the British Empire, the Beatles’ hometown is now a thriving capital of music, culture and sport

Our Liverpool school

All the world once flowed through the port of Liverpool: coffee, sugar, silk – and people all passed through Britain’s gateway to the Atlantic. Liverpool’s legacy of seafaring and trade is tangible in the stark grandeur of the Victorian docks and warehouses and the extravagant buildings created to display the wealth of the city’s Edwardian merchants and bankers. And you can sense its history as a cultural melting pot in the music with which Liverpool continues to reach out to the world.

  • Our English school is just a short walk from the Royal Liver Building, from whose roofs the mythical Liver Birds watch over the town – and the Cavern Club, where the Beatles first performed.
  • Housed in a beautiful Edwardian building that once held the city’s Cotton Exchange
  • Regularly organizes trips to the famous Anfield stadium, home to Liverpool Football Club 
  • An ideal learning environment whatever your age – offering dedicated programmes for over 25’s; junior students aged 12-18 can be accepted in closed groups

”I chose to stay in a residence. I think it’s a good choice. I have four flatmates and it’s cool to speak, cook, and watch the TV together. Today, I’m more confident to speak in English with other people.”
