Who we are

LSC Stanton is a combination of two well-established independent English language schools:

  • London Study Centre: an English language school that was established in 1975 and based in Bayswater in London
  • Stanton School of English: an English language school that was established in 1973 and based in Bayswater in London

Both LSC and Stanton School were independently owned and are not part of language school chains. Both schools have been continuously accredited by the British Council since 1978. In 2015, these schools were merged and the operations were centred in Bayswater. LSC's management team, headed by Margaret McLeod, Principal, took over the managment of the combined business, whilst the Stanton School management team and teachers were retained so as to ensure continued excellent service to LSC Stanton's students and partners.
