Since 1955, Bell has provided outstanding education to students from around the world, transforming the lives of over one million people. Through our teaching approach developed with an Emeritus Professor at the University of Cambridge, The Bell Way encourages students to aim high, exceed their learning goals and become confident users of the English Language.

Bell was awarded 14 points of excellence in their recent British Council inspection, and the Independent Schools Inspectorate (ISI) report in June 2018 also awarded them an ‘excellent’ rating: “Teaching is excellent and results in high levels of student progress. Teachers are experienced, well-qualified and have excellent subject knowledge.” 

Bell also prides itself on its nationality mix, and high-level of student care – with small class sizes, you can also expect a participative and personalised experience during your studies.
