Helping you Learn English and Enjoy Life in English-speaking Cultures in Several Destinations

For more than four decades, CES has combined high-quality teaching, real-life local experience, and a commitment to excellence to provide a wide range of courses and programmes

Qualified People Ensures High-standard Teaching

Across our three regions, we recruit the highest quality staff to deliver our courses. For example, in England all teachers have, as a minimum, either the Trinity TESOL or Cambridge CELTA qualification, with many holding specialist EFL teaching diplomas and degrees. And in Ireland, all of our teachers hold a university degree plus an ACELS recognised teaching qualification, with many also having specialist EFL teaching qualifications, like DELTA. Similarly, teaching staff in our two Canadian centres are all highly-qualified.

Creating Complete Learning Experiences

By combining English language education with fun social programmes and real-life cultural experiences, we can offer so much more than any other language school. We also work hard to provide and maintain a range of homestay and residential accommodation options to suit every student, allowing you to learn English with ease in all parts of everyday life.

Delivering Excellence in Education

In 2007 CES was awarded the ‘Star English Language School in Europe’ with four centres or less and we were shortlisted for the same award every year between 2008–2011. CES is the only school to have been nominated for this award for 5 consecutive years! CES is recognised and accredited by the British Council in England and ACELS (the Irish Department of Education) in Ireland. CES Ireland is also a founding member of Marketing English in Ireland (MEI).

CES is also proud to have a number of our year-round schools as full EAQUALS members. CES Dublin is also an official IELTS Test Centre and a PEARSON test centre. CES Leeds and CES Toronto are official IELTS Test Centres. All our schools in England are full members of English UK.  Our school in Toronto is accredited by Languages Canada and the Ministry of Colleges and Universities in Ontario. 


Our motto is Care–Excellence–Success
