About

The St Giles Group comprises eight medium-large, year-round centres: Brighton, Eastbourne, London Central and London Highgate in the UK; New York and San Francisco in the USA; and Vancouver in Canada, along with several franchise schools in Brazil.

In June 2017, St Giles acquired the New School of English in Cambridge, which became the eighth year-round centre within the group. Our individual centres deal with a student population ranging from approximately 100-700, with an average course length of about 9 weeks.

Each year we expect to receive around 14,000 students 'through the doors' from approximately 100 different countries. Most of our year-round students come from Europe, North East Asia and South America, and are typically aged between 18 and 30.

We also run a thriving Summer course operation, with residential camps for ‘Juniors’ aged 7-18 years in the UK, USA and Canada, and courses for family groups with children at 4 locations in the UK and USA.

In recent years, we have successfully expanded our range of “Family Courses”, where parents and children can study in separate classes but in the same location, with a packaged programme of afternoon activities and weekly full-day excursions.

The ages we deal with across all courses thus range from as young as 7 to over 70 years
