Opened in 1989 by former pupil, Diana, Princess of Wales, the School provides a safe and secure introduction to life in England. Set in beautiful grounds in the heart of lovely Norfolk countryside and in an elegant English stately home, it is within easy reach of Cambridge and Norwich. The nearest airport is Norwich airport, and the School is about 2.5 hours' drive from London.

  • Familiarising students with the British way of life
  • Ensuring each student receives the close attention they require and deserve
  • Offering a varied and interesting package of sports, activities and excursions

  • Thorough and intensive teaching in the English language
  • Covering other academic subjects
