The worst school, which is stuck in the 1990s. Website is disgustingly outdated, phones from the web site do not work, the office looks like it is a free school with cheap posters on painted walls and ugly carpet, rooms are dusty, teachers can not use online tools and have problems on every zoom-call, school's rules are not flexible to new clients and clearly are not interested in the customer service, very poorly managed. Such a business shouldn't exist, pathetic.

Hello. Our 5 yo daughter was there last year. 7 weeks. She liked going there and the staff made her feel comfortable. Bare in mind that dealing with a 5yo child without English knowledge is difficult, they dealt it quite well. Some troubles at the beginning, but we solved them. All the staff is OK, but a special THANK YOU to Heather, her teacher. I am sure you can find better schools around but if you are looking for some small school were you can leave your child without troubles, worries etc, go to OISC! We trusted them. a plus: LGBT friendly,

I would never recommend this school to any teacher. The school fails to have the professional media required for teacher training. None of the teachers that did a course here met his/her expectations because they don't even respect the schedule they send you before starting. If they can't offer a good course, they should stop offering it as people often feel really disappointed with the lessons given, at least with the teachers' training programme.

After a one-month course on Teacher Training programme, utter disaster and complete waste of time and money. No new methodology, no gamification, no project work, no IT, no apps, no OHP, no C2 activities, just gap filling for Penny Lane and a little bell to keep us silent, useless teachers and staff. Erasmus+ students and CLIL, go somewhere else!!!
