Central School of English

Central School of English was established in 1968 and over the last 40 years we have built a reputation for providing high quality English language courses in the centre of London. Every year we welcome more than 1,500 students from over 55 different countries, including Italy, France, Japan, Russia, Spain, Germany, Poland, and Korea.

In January 1999 we became a member of the OISE group of schools, an international network of schools renowned for its commitment to quality language training.


Situated in the heart of London, we occupy an attractive modernised Victorian building conveniently located next to Tottenham Court Rd Underground station on the Northern and Central lines. Major tourist attractions including Trafalgar Square, The British Museum and Covent Garden are just minutes away. The theatres, cinemas, nightclubs, pubs and restaurants of London’s West End are on our doorstep.

Central School of English is located 20 metres from the Tottenham Court Rd underground station.
