English Language at Stamford Academy

Founded in 2005, Stamford Academy is a family-owned and run language school located in the heart of Stamford, a beautiful stone town situated 100 miles north of London. The Academy specialises in the provision of English language courses for students from overseas and the teaching of European languages such as French, Spanish and Italian.

In 2010, the school gained recognition with the British Council as an accredited provider of quality English language courses, following a comprehensive independent inspection and is also certified by Cambridge ESOL as a preparation centre for their range of English language examinations.

The Academy has four purpose-built classrooms, each ideal for accommodating groups of up to twelve students - though many of our classes are capped at ten. They strongly believe that small class sizes are essential for students of any subject to fully engage in, and benefit from, the learning experience.
