The UK’s joint 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 joint 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.



After 50 wonderful years and thousands of happy students, we are sad to report that the school is now closed. We plan to reopen as soon as possible and will soon be keeping you informed with regular posts on our school Facebook page.  Take care, stay safe and with love and best wishes from John, Margaret, Andrew and all the teachers and staff at ELC Bristol.


Aerospace Bristol

On Friday we visited Aerospace Bristol, one of our city's best museums.

As well as seeing the fascinating interactive exhibits, we had the chance to explore the last Concorde ever to be built!


Cinema Night

ELC lads at the cinema last night :)

What better activity on a rainy Wednesday evening?


Laser Fusion

The best UV laser battle ever!

But the question is, how did John Duncan win when he wasn't even there?!


Longleat House & Safari park

We saw so many animals at Longleat on Saturday!

Lions, tigers, wolves... only the giraffes managed to hide from us!
