Welcome to the English International College

Welcome to The English International College. Founded in 1982, The EIC has consistently achieved outstanding academic achievements, with our students each year graduating to some of the best universities around the world. We pride ourselves in ensuring that student talents are encouraged and nurtured across not only the academic field, but in the sporting and cultural ones. We are passionate about developing young people to be inquisitive, independent learners who are confident to express their ideas and opinions, whilst demonstrating tolerance and respect.

Our teachers are passionate about the learning that takes place here, ensuring that students are challenged to reach their potential in a caring and supportive environment. It is important for us that we continue to innovate both what we do and the opportunities that we provide to students, ensuring they are equipped and ready for the world around them.

The key to our success is the strong working relationships that are forged and maintained between our academic staff and students. In our care, students feel comfortable to question, to take risks and to ask for help. Our job is to help guide them through the highs and lows of growing up in an ever-changing and fast-paced world, whilst maintaining their own happiness and well-being.

The English International College: where Every Individual Counts.

Small Class Sizes

We are proud of our small student to teacher ratio, with a maximum of twenty students per class. Children have the opportunity for their learning to be personalised and tailored to suit their individual needs; happiness and wellbeing are key components to their learning journey.

Our Teaching Excellence

Our high academic standards lie at the heart of our pedagogy. The vibrant engagement between teachers and students makes learning at EIC a unique opportunity to shape a world full of possibilities.

Global Universities

Our consistent success at A Level over the last 40 years has seen students progress to university in the UK, (including Oxbridge, Imperial, LSE & UCL) the USA, Canada, Spain, Ireland, Belgium, Switzerland, the Netherlands and Sweden. A Levels continue to be the proven path to a global future.

Our Close Community

The EIC vision reflects the key values of our community. We believe learning does not happen in isolation but through the support of peers, staff and families. Trust becomes the foundation of meaningful relationships at The EIC.
