English Language Schools in the United Kingdom

The UK section of our Good School Guide has details of almost 400 English language schools and university language centers all over the UK (the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland).

Inclusion in the Guide is by recommendation, and we generally list only schools which are accredited by the The British Council and have a reputation for quality and good service to students.

How to find a school:

There are four ways to search for a school in the Guide:
  1. Keyword Search: use the search box under the UK map to enter one or more keywords: all schools in the UK section of the Guide will be searched.

  2. Choose a region of the United Kingdom to browse an A-Z list of all schools in that region. You can also click a region on the UK map.

  3. Advanced Search: use this detailed search page to look for particular locations, courses, examinations, facilities or other features.

  4. List all schools: browse the A-Z list of nearly 400 schools in the United Kingdom, with 30 schools listed on each page.
All these options are available in the left side panel on every page of the UK section of the Guide.
