Description of centre
A student once told us, 'every day is a special day at Mackenzie School', and make it our mission to ensure this is true for every single person that comes to study on one of our programmes. We truly believe that a study trip should be a life-enhancing experience.
Established in 2008 with a strong focus on quality, attention to detail, and a personable service, Mackenzie School of English is an independent organisation based in Scotland’s capital city of Edinburgh.
In May 2018, we moved to a new building – an iconic 18th century, sandstone, former church. Refurbished to an exceptionally high standard and carefully designed with you, the student, in mind. Our new school is traditional unique and culturally stunning from the outside. Inside, it is spacious and modern with a contemporary feel and lots of natural light, which combines to create a perfect learning environment.
We are accredited by the British Council, members of English UK, Young Learners English UK, English UK Scotland, and one of only two Quality English Licensed schools in Edinburgh.
Mackenzie has a range of course options and regular activities on offer including cultural visits, excursions, and social events to help you make the most of your time at Mackenzie School.
Edinburgh is a beautiful and enchanting city and there’s so much to see and do. It has been named the second-best tourist destinations in the UK among and among the top 20 in Europe by Trip Advisor in both 2018 and 2019.
Our main school is open year-round, and we also operate a summer residential programme at Merchiston Castle Boarding School in July for 12 - 17 year olds.
