From children to adults. From first thing to last thing in the evening. Whether to study or to reinforce it. Princess Margaret School provides English courses in flexible timetables to bring the English language closer to everyone who wants or needs it.
Princess Margaret School provides after-school English language courses for boys and girls from 3 years-old to adult in afternoon sessions in order to bring English closer to as many people as possible.
The courses, which run from October to June, are organised into three terms and are once or twice a week with a range of time slots between 5:30 p.m. and 9:30 p.m.
Currently, with the aim of extending our timetable and implementing new after-school English learning options, Princess Margaret School is offering new FCE, CAE and CPE morning classes.
The Princess Margaret School system succeeds, through personalised teaching, given that the groups are small, in successfully presenting students at the University of Cambridge exams, whose qualifications are widely recognised and valued around the world. These qualifications open the doors to world of work for our students and are highly valued for the recognition of open credits for various degrees.
The afternoon English classes take place within within the context of a participative and highly-dynamic teaching system, taking into account that students arrive at the school after a sometimes gruelling school or work day. The school’s experience since 1967 has been focussed on the provision of after-school English so as to achieve our objectives. New technologies, such as interactive white boards and the virtual campus for the eldest students, make us one of the pioneering schools technologically.
