This is the way I have always felt about working at The Isca school of English. The school to me means learning English with family and friends! I hope you will come to join our family and make international friends for life!

Growing up in a language school was definitely different to the home life a lot of my friends had but I wouldn’t change it for anything in the world! Students would walk in to our home for a coffee and a chat – some even pop in unexpectedly now which is just wonderful!

My experiences living in a language school have given me a unique perspective on the way I welcome our students. Nowadays I may not be cooking breakfast and Christmas dinner as my grandparents and parents did but you can be sure I will do my best to help you make international friends and have a wonderful experience that you will remember for life.

What is my favourite moment of the day?

There are so many things but truthfully my favourite moment of the day is at the start of the day when I walk around the classrooms and hear a gentle hum of people talking and know everyone is settling in and getting ready for a wonderful time.

What would I change?

The weather! If I could guarantee sunshine all summer that would be fantastic! Each year looking at how to improve the school, what students have liked and disliked. I think about which sports and activities they enjoy doing and try to find new things.   I would say I change a little each year to make our summer programme better for our students and I am sure I will carry on doing that until I retire!
