The UK’s Number 1 School.*

*According to the EL Gazette rankings based on
British Council inspectors’ publishable statements.

Read the article which explains what makes ELC Bristol the number 1 ranked UK school.

ELC Bristol is a family-run school, offering intensive General English and examination preparation courses in Bristol, a lively university city in the South West of England.


We get to know all our students as individuals. Not only will we help you in the classroom but we will also interview you regularly and plan an individual supervised self-study programme for you. Every single student is known by name and every student in the school is discussed in our weekly teachers' meetings.

All of our teachers are qualified native speakers, but maybe what is equally important is that they care a lot about our students.  They also have many years' experience teaching English (average: 21 years) and they have worked at ELC Bristol for a long time (average: 13 years).
