London is definitely a place of contrasts. Each of its "small villages" has its own identity. If you choose any given adjective, you are sure that it can be used to describe one of the districts of London. For Highgate, 'laid back' comes readily to mind. You'll love it! Only 20 minutes by underground train away from the city centre, Highgate is ideal for enjoying London without the hassles of the city. The calm after the storm.
Our partner school is located in a beautiful Victorian style house. There are 23 well-equipped classrooms, a large library, a digital language lab and a multimedia room with free internet access. Students benefit from an optimal setting for making friends and practising the language. They can also enjoy excellent homemade dishes from the cafeteria, on the veranda or in the school’s lovely gardens.
