Thank you for being a wonderful person who has accompanied me on this experience, thanks for all your patience but most of all thank you for your precious teachings!

Alessia, from Italy
My summer school student went to Kingscote English School and I was amazed at how her English improved dramatically after only a month of lessons. She found the school very friendly and the small classes gave her more confidence to learn. I would definitely recommend Kingscote.
