The full report is available by clicking here.

Here is a summary of some of the ISI findings:

  • Teaching and learning is good. Lessons are well planned...
  • External examination results are above the national standard
  • Teachers are well skilled at providing a variety of learning opportunities for students to practise their language skills
  • The school provides a safe and comfortable place for students and staff to study and work
  • Safeguarding arrangements for under 18s are good. Staff have a good awareness of child protection and an appropriate policy is implemented effectively.

Margaret McLeod, Principal, commented:

“Today, LSC Stanton is accredited and inspected by a number of different bodies that look at different aspects of the courses and services that we provide to our students. We welcome the opportunity to meet with these different inspection bodies and to use their feedback to improve the quality of everything that we do.

This report comes after our Highly Trusted Sponsor status was renewed by the UK Government for the fourth successive year (February 2015).

The excellent scores and positive outcomes of all of these inspections help to reassure our students that they are studying in a top quality language school."

 

We are delighted to tell you that LSC has bought Stanton School of English, a well-known English language school based in Bayswater (Zone 1 of central London). Like LSC, Stanton has been accredited by the British Council for nearly 40 years!

We have decided to combine both of these great schools in Bayswater, creating LSC Stanton in the process! Margaret McLeod will be the Principal of LSC Stanton and all LSC staff and students have transferred to Bayswater.

LSC's Managing Director, Nicholas Bray, commented:

"We review our prices every year. This year, it was a very simple decision! The feedback we have received from our students and trusted partners around the world tells us that many European and emerging markets are struggling for growth, and the Pound Sterling remains relatively strong in these markets. We have always been 100% committed to offering students top quality tuition at competitive prices, and by freezing our prices we demonstrate this commitment. We very much hope that this announcement will be popular with our students and our international partners."
