Eckersley Oxford was one of the first English language schools to be established in Oxford. John Eckersley founded the school in 1955 and since then, we have been helping students from all over the world to achieve their goals. Our aim is to improve your confidence and ability to communicate in English. Our experienced and highly-trained teachers will provide you with plenty of opportunities to improve your existing language skills and develop new ones. 

With 14 modern classrooms, we can welcome up to 120 students from all over the world at any time. 

Located in the heart of the historic city of Oxford, Eckersley is the perfect place for students of all ages to study. Our experienced and helpful staff are on hand to assist you with anything you need. We are dedicated to providing a great service in a great city and celebrating a proud tradition with a very contemporary outlook, embodied in the school slogan - "Our Past Building Your Future".
