Description of centre

Purley Language College was established in 1928 and is one of the longest-established centres of English language learning in the UK. We are open all year for adults, teenagers and children. Accredited by the British Council and inspected by England's Independent Schools Inspectorate, we pride ourselves on excellence in small, friendly classes.

The college is just 20 minutes on the train from central London and yet close to beautiful Surrey countryside. We are able to tailor courses to suit your needs and can arrange homestay or residence accommodation as well as trips and activities outside the classroom.

In 2016 we opened a new residence/guest house just 2 doors away. The residence has 7 very modern, clean guest rooms all with private bathrooms. There are single, twin, triple and quad rooms. It is very suitable for families wishing to study together. Breakfast, packed lunch and dinner can be provided.

Purley Language College is famous for the quality of its homestay families and the way we care for students, for example students under the age of 18 are always brought to school and picked up every day by their host families.
