Timea, from Hungary

"I highly recommend Richmond English School to everyone who wants to improve their English and prepare for an IELTS exam. What I like the most in this school is the small number of students in the class and friendly, professional staff. Thank you so much for all of your help, and I will definitely tell my friends home in Hungary about this school!"

Nadia, from France

CAE certified

"I spent 7 months at Richmond English school and with hard work and Tom's good teaching I passed my CAE exam with an excellent result. They also organize several events every month to make you meet new people! Alessandra, in the office, is always happy to help and she's very attentive to the students' needs. I definitely recommend this school! :)"

Iza, from Spain


"Richmond English School classes have helped me lots to improve my English, not only to prepare for the Cambridge exams but also how to express myself better, improve written English and listening. Before I was in other London academies with different methods, but I think Richmond School is the best because we practised all aspects of the language."
