Updated September 2021


El Gazette have just released their 2021/2022 school rankings table, and Wimbledon School of English has topped the table once again!


Best English School in UK 2022

El Gazette Ranking 2021 2022



How is the ranking decided?
It is based entirely on British Council Inspection reports as it is something that all UK based language schools have in common. We all undergo the same inspection and we all get a summary report at the end. It’s one of the fairest ways to compare how different language schools perform across all areas.

So what exactly does a score of 100 mean?
It means that we exceeded expectations in all 15 areas of the inspection with no suggestions for improvement.

What are the 15 areas of the inspection?

  1. Academic staff profile
  2. Academic management
  3. Accommodation
  4. Care of students
  5. Care of under-18s
  6. Course design
  7. Learner management
  8. Learning resources
  9. Leisure opportunities
  10. Premises and facilities
  11. Publicity
  12. Quality assurance
  13. Staff management
  14. Student administration
  15. Teaching

And what does this mean for students?
It’s a quality guarantee. They know that an independent and well-respected inspection body has come into Wimbledon School of English, evaluated all areas of the school, and awarded us a strength in every area. Lots of language schools claim they are high quality and we have the proof!

Can I read Wimbledon School of English’s report?
Yes, it’s available here. An English language course is a big investment so we always encourage students to read the reports of the different schools they are considering. They are all available online via the British Council website.

Wimbledon School of English was also named as London's Best Value Language School for 2020. To read the article, click here
