The Gloucester Gate centre is on the edge of Regents Park, close to London Zoo. In the summer some classes are also held at SKOLA Camden nearby. The nearest underground station is Camden Town. 14 Gloucester Gate is part of the historic royal estate surrounding Regents Park built in the Regency style of architecture in the early 19th century.

Close to the museums, attractions and galleries of Central London, SKOLA English Study Tours offers unique English language and cultural programmes for children all year. SKOLA’s adult school, SKOLA English in London also offers a range of courses for adults aged 18+ so that parents and other adult relatives can also study English while their children are at school.

English courses in London - Gloucester Gate

All our courses combine English classes with sightseeing, cultural visits, physical exercise and social activities appropriate to the age group. Lessons and activities both provide opportunities for learning and English practice in a happy and secure international environment.

English Outdoors gives students opportunities to perform learning tasks and projects under supervision outside the school, such as surveys of shops and local businesses, orienteering and scavenger hunts in Regent’s Park. High ratios of staff supervision on all outside activities means that children are always safe and secure throughout the school day.

In addition to our English language programmes for children, we can provide homestay accommodation, airport transfers and school bus services. Homestays are arranged by partner agencies on behalf of SKOLA English Study Tours. The minimum age for unaccompanied children in homestay is 11 years old. Unaccompanied children younger than 14 years must use the school bus service.
