About Us

Worcester School is run by Sue and Rick Johns. They spent over 30 years running Kingsway English Centre Worcester, a British Council accredited English language school providing English courses to mature adults, so they have life-long experience in providing the best for you.

Please note, we are a small family-run school and we only have 1 or 2 students with us at any one time. So you may be the only international student when you are here but you won’t be alone. We have around 30-40 people in our building on most days and Rick, Sue or Sally are usually in too. We do not offer a traditional social programme but are happy to help you choose things to do and places to visit on your free time. If you are an independent traveller happy to explore and make friendships on your own then we’re a great choice. Please email us if you have any questions.

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 obsessed with 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.
