Welcome to our Website and to the Isca School of English
Choosing the best English language school for your child is not easy. I remember the care my parents took when they were looking for language schools for me in France and Spain and the wonderful experiences I had as a result. Your son or daughter can have a wonderful experience too.
As a family-run school which has been welcoming students for over three generations, we want our students to feel safe and happy. We want them to study hard, significantly improve their English and enjoy our exciting programme of sports, social activities and excursions. We want them to make friends with their English host families, their fellow students and have a great time in Exeter.
We offer General English courses for age groups 12 to 14 and 14/15 to 17 in the summer, at levels from A2 to C2.
Students at B2 level can prepare for the Cambridge First Certificate by joining one of our 3 week FCE courses in July or in August and take the exam before returning home.
The ability to work collaboratively with people of different nationalities and cultures is one of the global skills that are increasingly important for life in the 21st century. Here at Isca, your child will study in an international class. They practise these skills while learning English with our team of fully qualified, professional teachers. They often make friends for life and return to Isca the following year to meet up again.
Our students live in welcoming English homes. I am sure that this is one of the things you feel most concerned about. We know that the welcome your child receives is one of the most important elements of a successful language holiday in the UK. It is really important to us too. We choose the homes for our students very carefully. We ask all students in the first 2 days if they are happy and enjoying English food! If our host families have any worries about your child, they contact us straightaway.
Each year approximately 40 % of our students return to Isca and they almost always request to stay with the same family.
With the help of, our great teachers, our social staff and the office team, we will do our very best for your child at the Isca School. I look forward to welcoming him or her here next summer.
Please email me if you have any questions.
I look forward to hearing from you.
With very best wishes,
