Welcome to SKOLA,

SKOLA has provided education for children, adults and families for 50 years.

From the start, our founders, Niels and Ann Toettcher, placed students at the heart of everything they did. They wanted to grow their student's sense of identity by developing their confidence to communicate.


They believe this only comes from great teachers on exciting courses with enriching experiences. We continue with that philosophy today, 

Ben Toettcher
School Manager
