We can help students find accommodation in the local area. 

Pinner is half an hour by tube to central London – where there is plenty to do, whether it is seeing the sights and attractions such as Big, Ben, Piccadilly Circus, Trafalgar Square, the Tower of London, London Eye, Buckingham Palace etc, visiting museums,  art galleries, the theatre and cinemas, going shopping or enjoying an evening out.

We are a friendly school, so you will find it easy to make friends; our teachers are always willing to help you and give advice about life in England and what to do in London.

In school we have WiFi so you can always access the internet, there are coffee shops and cafes close to school where you can socialise with other students, and the local library is a few minutes’ walk away.
