Central England is a diverse region with a mixture of history, culture, cities and countryside all in one area. One of the main advantages of being located in the "heart" of England, is the ability to explore the central region with ease and also visit nearby surrounding cities and sites such as London, Oxford and Manchester for day-trips.
The region is located around Britain's second city, Birmingham, which is only 75 minutes from London by train.
The central region is home to famous historical figures such as William Shakespeare and Robin Hood. It boasts some of the most spectacular architecture with the medieval "black and white" buildings. For those looking for history there are many impressive castles and cathedrals to visit, whilst those interested in relaxing can enjoy the rivers, canals and countryside and mountains of Wales.
The region consists of 12 members, many who are owner-managed, ranging in size and location. Some are based in lively cities where there are many opportunities to visit galleries, theatres, shops and restaurants. Others are based more in the quieter countryside where walking, hiking and outdoor leisure activities can be enjoyed.
All schools in the region are close to international airports, such as Birmingham, London and Manchester.
