About Us

Worcester School is run by Sue and Rick Johns to provide work-related training to non-native English speaking professionals. It followed a 30+ year career running Kingsway English Centre Worcester, a British Council accredited English school providing English courses to mature adults.

As the level of English internationally has increased over the last 10 years the desire to just learn English for the sake of it has been overtaken by a need to do something useful in English.

At Worcester School we provide you with the opportunity to improve your personal skills in a variety of work-related situations – in English – so you can be more confident, be more efficient, and aspire to that better job or promotion!

She spent several years teaching in the UK and abroad before starting her own training centre. She is around most days to ensure you have a rewarding stay.

We’re Committed to Quality

Sue and Rick spent over 30 years running Kingsway English Centre, an adult English language school, to the exacting requirements of the British Council quality recognition scheme, “Accreditation UK”. Their change to Worcester School has brought those same exacting standards with them, so although Worcester School is not accredited you can be 100% sure that your experience will be of the same (or better!) quality.
