About Mayfair School
Mayfair School is situated in a five-story building between Oxford Circus and Tottenham Court Road tube stations. The building is on Oxford Street within minutes of the West End, Soho, Picadilly, Regent Street and a short walk away from Covent Garden.
We want our students to have an outstanding learning experience that enriches their lives and contributes to their success in the future. Our expertise in English Language teaching and belief that every student matters is what makes Mayfair different.
We aim for excellence
Learning is at the heart of everything we do and we strive to achieve excellence in our language lessons. We do our very best to help students achieve their language goals through tutorials and progress monitoring.
We are a friendly team with time to listen. All of our students are important to us and we offer a personal service to make sure that everyone feels part of the school.
Mayfair teachers are selected for their qualifications and experience. All are native English-speaking graduates with a TEFL qualification. More than half are Diploma qualified and all have at least 4 years of teaching experience. Our teachers attend regular teacher development sessions to ensure that they are familiar with current practice in language teaching.
Communicative language training with native-speaker teachers forms the basis of all of our courses. You will develop your listening, speaking, reading and writing skills as well as your understanding of grammar. Interactive learning with technology in every classroom helps you to use increasingly complex language with confidence. Language learning has never been more engaging.
Assessment and progress tracking
Every student has an academic record from day one. Progress is tracked each week through assessment tasks in all four skills (listening, speaking, reading and writing). Weekly individual tutorials help to guide all students towards achieving their learning goals.
Off-site learning days form part of each syllabus, approximately once every six weeks, so that students can experience language in a real and meaningful context with their teacher. The lesson is linked to the syllabus and your teacher will direct and provide you with opportunities for interactive and context-based learning.

The school provides an ideal learning environment in the heart of London. We have fully refurbished classrooms, interactive whiteboards and very experienced teachers.

Choosing the right school for your English Language course can be difficult so our accreditation can help you make this choice.
