English school in Washington DC

Walk through the pages of American history in the nation’s capital, where gleaming monuments bear witness to power, idealism and struggle

Our Washington DC school

From the Civil War to the Civil Rights Movement, Washington is the backdrop to the most dramatic chapters of America’s story, and the beating heart of its modern politics. Watch senators at the Capitol Building, sit at the feet of Abraham Lincoln, and walk the corridors of the White House. But it isn’t all scandals, squabbles and filibusters: dance the night away in Georgetown, relax in the grounds of the National Arboretum, or head to the U Street area for live music.


We have delayed the reopening of our Washington school due to Coronavirus. Our New York Central Park school is reopening on 31 August with enhanced safety measures. Find out more.
