Location: In the north of London, in the suburb of Highgate is St Giles International. It is centrally located within the borough, close to the Queens Park and the main central high street. The school is on a residential street, but a short walk brings students to the shops, restaurants and bars in the area.

Getting around: It is a 5-minute walk to the Highgate Tube Station. This is part of the Northern Line, which goes all the way to the centre of the city and down south past Clapham. It takes about 25 minutes by the underground to get to the very centre of London.

Local attractions: Highgate is a very green area, with lots of parks and walks to enjoy. The school backs on to Queens Park, and Waterlow Park is 17 minutes by foot from the school. Hampstead Heath is a 26-minute walk from St Giles International, or 19 minutes by bus. Here students can visit the Kenwood Manor House and enjoy views over London on Parliament Hill. The main attractions in central London can all be reached by using the public transportation links in the area.

Course structure: The school has adult group general English courses, combination packages, private lessons, exam preparation courses, English courses for teachers and Business English programmes.

Junior programmes: During the summer months the school is open to junior students with packages for students to stay in the residence or at a homestay.

What students liked about St Giles International - Highgate, London
I liked the business lessons (I've chosen this course purposely to study Business English that's why it was the most interesting for me). Then I decided to try private lessons and was lucky that Sally found Sheila for me. Her lessons were very useful! What especially amazed me was that the staff and teachers were really willing to help with any problem. They listened and heard their students. I appreciated that very much!

Insider tips about what future students should not miss: As for tips for students: Do not be afraid of asking questions and to speak more even if it's difficult at the beginning. Respect teachers and each other and everything will be perfect!
Other comments: Great school. I've already recommended it to two ladies I know.
Great location near tube station, beautiful old building, friendly staff, small groups. I really enjoyed the afternoon activities: bowling, pub nights, theatre and museum.
