Astley English College, Sydney, Australia

Astley English College

The language school Astley English College was founded in Sydney, Australia in 2016. Nestled in the Surry Hill borough of Sydney resides Astley English College. Surrey Hill is described as the bohemian neighbourhood of Sydney with a comparison made to Nottinghill in London. The streets are filled with eclectic eateries, one of a kind boutiques and unique coffee bars, with a monthly vintage market where locals flock to get great deals on trendy clothing and one of a kind items. The school is minutes from the central Sydney train station with lines extending throughout the province of New South Wales. Sydney is the largest city in Australia and although not the capital its size often confuses people into thinking that it is. It is a modern city with a well designed public transport system allowing its residents and visitors to explore its quarters with ease. Sydney Opera House draws the most interest from tourists and from Astley English College, students can visit the stunning building by walking through the streets in 40 minutes or by bus hopping for 20 minutes. Around the Sydney Opera House, along with great views of the surrounding areas, students can see the Botanical Gardens, The Museum of Sydney and the Art Gallery of New South Wales. It is not possible to enter the water around the harbour, but for those needing to place their feet in the Australian water, then Bondi Beach is definitely worth a trip. From Astley English College, students can take a bus to the coast of the city in 35 minutes and enjoy the sun after a hard day of studying.

The school’s principles are based around the 5 words; Respect, Positivity, Empathy, Loyalty and Fun and this is transparent in the daily running of the school. The school respects that each student has their own background and reasoning for learning English and focuses on understanding this and incorporating it into group work. It is important to the school that no student is left behind in learning and the teachers are empathic in the differing pace of learning a language each student may have and are adaptable in their learning styles so that the whole group learns together. The staff are highly trained in teaching English to foreign students and intertwine the curriculum taught in the classroom with fun and interactive games to keep students engaged at all times. Everyone at the school has a positive attitude and encourages students to engage in the classroom and outside to make the most of their experience at the school as practical application of English is just as important as the grammar. Astley English College has a support desk for all students to use which aids the school in being loyal to each student's wishes and ensures that any problems that arise whilst at the school, be it inside the school or outside are addressed and no student feels alone. Other facilities available at the school are a student lounge, a computer lab, a library and a cafeteria for break time and conversing with peers after class.


The school address is: Level 4, 72 Mary Street, 2010 - Sydney, Australia (see on map)
