About Us

The Islington Centre for English

The Islington Centre for English (ICE) is a specialist language school based in the heart of London, in Angel Islington. We offer a variety of English language courses to suit all proficiency levels at some of the lowest prices in the English language school marketplace. Whether you’re a beginner or preparing for your Cambridge Advance certificate, at ICE school you’ll find an English course to suit.

Our doors have been open to eager English language students for 10 years. Before this we were working with the London Centre of Fashion studies teaching academic English to undergraduate students; since then we believe we have become the best value independent English school in London. Accredited by the British council, our language school has attracted thousands of language students from all over the world, with more than 2500 enrolments per year. The Islington Centre for English is a great learning environment as we provide a caring, family atmosphere to put students and teachers alike at ease, as well as being a spacious and fully equipped school, based in the heart of London.

We offer our students flexibility, as our courses can be as long, short or advanced as they require; with the option of part-time courses and class slots in the morning, afternoon and evening, we can ensure there’s always an available time to learn. We offer an extensive range of English courses including general English courses and the Cambridge First Certificate (FCE).  Having this qualification is the best way to prove to a potential employer that you can speak, read and write in English at a sufficient level. In addition to IELTS exam preparation, we offer Business English courses, language workshops including writing classes and speaking classes.

Our teachers are all native speakers, with a maximum of 15 pupils per lesson we want to encourage our students to participate in class, communicate and speak English as much as possible to ensure they have the opportunity to practice their English.

We understand that learning a new language can be nerve-wracking experience but it doesn’t have to be. Our students enjoy learning alongside making new friends and experiencing London. So if you are interested in taking a great value course, then the Islington Centre for English is the place for you!
