Japan Best School Award 2018

Wimbledon School of English has once again been named one of the best English language schools by Japanese study abroad agency Ryugaku Journal. 

Every year, Ryugaku Journal collates feedback from its students and uses this data to give their best performing partners schools a "Japan Best School Award". This kind of award is really special to WSE as it is based entirely on student feedback. Every year WSE welcomes all types of students from Japan, from high school students to university students, to business people and even right up to retired men and women who want to improve their English to be able to travel the world. Our Japanese students are always very popular with staff, host families and other students and they bring something very special to our school.

For those of us that can't read Japanese, we have the English language version of our Managing Director, Jane Dancaster's, comments below:

"We are absolutely delighted at having been chosen by Ryugaku Journal’s clients as one of their top schools for 2018.  On behalf of all the staff of Wimbledon School of English, I would like to say a very big THANK YOU to all our RJ students!  We would also like to thank the fantastic RJ staff for their dedication, care and professionalism.   We have worked with RJ for over 25 years and they are one of our most important partners, so this award is a very great honour for us.

We are also of course very happy that our RJ clients have enjoyed their time here at WSE.  We are very lucky to be located in Wimbledon, a lovely, green and very safe part of London with good shopping, restaurants and leisure facilities. We have a team of highly experienced teachers and so our students make excellent progress with their English and also really enjoy their classes, and our friendly administration staff make sure that students have excellent accommodation and a lot of fun on our social programme.  We were looking forward to welcoming more RJ clients here in 2018!"

Wimbledon School of English was the only school from the UK to enter the top 10 so in the eyes of Ryugaku Journal students, Wimbledon School of English is the best English language school in London and the UK. 

We look forward to welcoming many more Japanese students this summer and hope the feedback will be just as positive! Fingers crossed that we will be named Best English Language School in the UK again in 2019.
