Give your child a head start with inspiring English classes for kids

Primary Plus, our English course for kids, will encourage your child aged seven to 10 years to express themselves in a safe, motivating environment.

We create a space where only English is spoken. Children feel at the centre of their own learning. They grow in confidence as they develop their fluency in English.

Inspiring. Engaging. Motivating.

Your child will:

  • build confidence by speaking in English about familiar topics such as their surroundings, from their bedroom to their neighbourhood
  • express themselves through exciting activities and group projects exploring subjects like the natural world, from under the sea to outer space
  • develop important life skills, which prepare them for their future beyond the classroom.

Learn English and so much more

Young students on our English courses learn by getting involved in activities that interest them. Our expert teachers help them develop their English skills – and also creativity, critical thinking, problem solving and leadership skills.

Set your child on the path to success

We see parents as partners. You will receive regular feedback on your child’s progress. At each age, we will assess their development in English language and core life skills. 

Our aim is that by the end of the course your child will achieve a minimum of A2 on the CEFR  (Common European Framework of Reference for Languages).

You will also get a log in to the Primary Plus online portal, so that your child can continue learning at home.
