One of the most important aspects of this school is the professional and welcoming staff, many of whom have worked here for 10, 20 and 30 years.

Many TIS students and business clients have returned to the school time after time and always recommend TIS.

Those who study at TIS are generally mature individuals and although the minimum age is 16, it is usual for around half of our students to be aged between 30 and 60 and often older.

Our specialities include Intensive General English, Business English and Examination Courses. We have three categories of homestay, apartments and flat-share as well as our own Club TIS hotel opposite the school. Another TIS highlight is the all-year-round Social Programme with something for everyone.

We love being part of TEN. We remain independent but we share a group experience. It's a privilege to network with the TEN colleagues.
