British Council

Most English schools in the UK are inspected by the British Council.


When you choose a school, you must always read their inspection report.

You can learn exactly what is good about the school (called a “strength” on the report).

We have just had our 2017 British Council Report (click to download).


We are very proud to have received strengths in the following categories:

  • Student administration
  • Quality assurance
  • Learning resources
  • Academic management
  • Course design
  • Learner management
  • Care of students

“The British Council inspected and accredited Leeds English Language School in February 2017. The Accreditation Scheme assesses the standards of management, resources and premises, teaching, welfare, and care of under 18s and accredits organisations which meet the overall standard in each area inspected (see for details).”

ISI Inspection

ISI (Independent School Inspectorate) is a government-approved body which inspects the quality of independent schools. We are no longer inspected by them, but were awarded a grade 1 in 2015. Our report in 2015 stated: “The Quality of the curriculum, teaching and learners’ achievement is excellent” read the full report here.
