What we like about the school

  • Free taxis home after evening activities

Mackenzie School of English

  • Mackenzie school of English is based in Leith, an area like no other, just over a mile from the city centre and Princes Street but with its own distinct character with a hub of lively cafes and restaurants, creativity, community events and cultural diversity. Edinburgh city centre is a 20 minute bus ride from the school. Once here attractions such as Edinburgh Castle and the Old Town are walkable. The base of Arthur's Seat, Abbey Hill Crescent, is a 12 minute bus ride from the school. From here students can ascend the hill to the famous landmark in 30 minutes. The building has a history all of its own and dates back to 1773. A well known Scottish architect, David Rhind, who is responsible for the design of Daniel Stewart's Hospital (1855) along with a number of significant buildings ...
    throughout the city redesigned and remodelled it. As a result the building has been listed since 1977.
  • The language school Mackenzie School of English was founded in Edinburgh, Scotland in 2008.
  • Address: 71 Constitution Street, EH6 7AF - Edinburgh, Scotland (see on map)
  • Legal name / parent company: The Mackenzie School of English Ltd
  • Tax registration ID: SC331852
  • Covid-19 Status: School currently open

Covid-19 related security measures that are taken by Mackenzie School of English

Measures include the introduction of a new hygiene routine, with regular hand washing and hand sanitizer stations installed around the building. We have also introduced 2m distancing for adults, social bubbles for young learners, and reduced class sizes. Face coverings are required to be worn by everyone around the school except in class when students can choose to wear one if they wish.

These are reviewed every two weeks to ensure they are up-to-date with the latest Scottish Government guidelines.

We have made some further changes, diversifying & adapting to the new climate by developing a nursery for local children on the ground floor, which we hope to open at the start of 2021. Wee Mack’s Nursery will operate as a separate business but will share the building with Mackenzie School.

This means that we no longer have use of our large ground floor common room but don’t worry, we have converted the first floor to include 2 smaller games rooms so our wonderful recreational facilities (PS4, Table Tennis, Fussball, and Pool) are still available for students to enjoy during their free time. To make this change and to ensure we comply with guidance, we have had to reduce our overall student capacity, but this means that students will benefit further from higher staff to student ratios. Adults and young learners will continue to be taught on different floors with 12 – 15s occupying the first floor, and 16+ on the top.
The trains are running, planes are flying into Scotland/Edinburgh, and most of our attractions and shops are open. The school is fully prepared to continue to offer our high standard of programmes and if it is necessary for a student to quarantine or self-isolate on arrival or during a course here, we have contingencies in place.
