School Awarded Centre Of Excellence Status


Following our very successful British Council inspection in August, we have been awarded 'Centre Of Excellence' status by the leading English language industry newspaper, The EL Gazette - an award which places the Devon School of English in the top 5% of language schools in the UK. This award is a fitting recognition for the energy, enterprise and expertise of the school's founders, Brian & Joan Hawthorne, and the diligence and dedication of the directors and staff  that have strived to maintain their principles over the last 42 years.

The British Council inspection report states that "strengths were noted in the areas of staff management, quality assurance, premises and facilities, academic staff profile, academic management, course design, and teaching." The full report can be read here.
