Stonyhurst Language School was awarded British Council Accreditation status in 2014, just 3 years after the first students came to the Language School.

British Council run in partnership with English UK to provide a scheme that gives assurance of quality to international students who are taking or planning to take an English language course in the UK.

Stonyhurst Language School voluntarily applied to join the British Council scheme to give our parents an assurance that our course follows strict guidelines and meets standards set by British Council in all matters relating to the summer school.  These areas include teaching and learning, care of the under 18’s, welfare, accommodation, leisure, premises and facilities and management of the course.

British Council will re-inspect Stonyhurst Language School on a four-yearly basis.  In addition to this British Council may announce spot-inspections.
