The majority of our students are younger learners, between 8 and 12 years old, although we do teach a full range of ages from 3 years old to adults. Coursebooks and all the resources you would expect in a modern school are provided. The school emphasizes quality of education above all, and most of our students continue to study at the school for term after term.
