Integrating excellence
Melanie Butler explains how the Gazette brings together the old and
new British Council inspection results to produce its quality rankings
Ow can you compare
the number of apples
scored by one group
with the number of pears
scored by another, even if the
fruit have been handed to both
groups by the same teacher?
On these pages we have ranked
organisations inspected by

fifteen points of strength can be
awarded, although most providTOP OF THE CLASS English in Chester has been ranked joint first
with nine points of excellence under the old BC inspection regime
ers can only score fourteen).
The only way to do this is
by norm-referencing - in other
words, you compare the percenKey
tile rankings of centres across
* = perfect score
the two groups. For example,
red = new entry since our September 2013 edition
Wimbledon School of English
is the only one of the 290 centres so far inspected under the

fifteen points, which puts it in

system changed. The difference
between these three schools is
so infinitesimally small that we
have placed all three schools in
joint top spot. To make it visually clear all the names in the
red boxes are schools inspected
under the new system, while
those in blue boxes were
inspected under the old.
It could be argued that this
is still not fair, as under the new
system many centres are not
inspected on all fifteen criteria.
However, this is a problem in
most educational league tables.
For example, a university with a
medical school will almost always
rank higher than one without one
because medical research is a category in most rankings.
In theory, it should be possible
for the Gazette to weight for criteria eligibility, indeed we might
well trying doing so in the future,
but when we are already comparing two different schemes it is an
algorithm too far.
Instead, we have marked with
asterisks Beet Language Centre,
Lake School of English and St
Edmund's College, all of whom
received a perfect score of fourteen points out of a possible
fourteen, as well as Wimbledon
School of English with fifteen
out of fifteen.

THE CHARACTERISTICS OF THE SCHOOL
1.1
Wimbledon School of English was established in Wimbledon in 1964, moving to its
current premises in 1975 where it occupies two adjoining Edwardian houses. The
school also runs and manages the London Exam Centre, a short distance away. The
chairwoman, who is also one of the main shareholders, is supported by a principal,
academic director and operations director. The school aims to offer students the
opportunity to improve their English language skills whilst gaining an insight into
British and international cultures.
1.2
The school provides weekly continuous enrolment throughout the year for students
aged 16 and over on general English classes and for students aged 18 and over on
business English classes. All courses are matched to the Common European
Framework Reference (CEFR). A range of examination courses, along with specialist
and business English language courses are available.
1.3
At the time of inspection 235 students were enrolled. Ten students were under 18
years of age. Numerous different nationalities are represented, with the majority of
students from Japan, South Korea, Italy, Taiwan and Switzerland. The majority of
students are female. No students were identified as requiring support for special
educational needs or disabilities (SEND).
1.4
The school has four residential homes in the local area and also offers female only
accommodation on request.
Students under 18 years use home-stay
accommodation.

The quality of the curriculum, teaching and learners’ achievement exceeds
expectations. The school very successfully achieves its aim to improve students’
English language skills. The curriculum is very effective in meeting students’
professional and personal requirements and aspirations, and offers clear progression
through the broad range of levels offered. Information available to students and
agents prior to arrival is clear, accurate and comprehensive. Initial assessment is
highly successful at placing students at the correct level. The quality of teaching and
learning is excellent and successfully enables all students to make very good
progress. Lessons are very well planned, responding to individual and group needs.
Teachers use an excellent range of teaching methods which meet the interests of
students. Progress is well monitored and students are set appropriate and
challenging targets. A very impressive virtual learning environment is used
effectively to complement formal teaching sessions and support individual
development and attainment.
2.2
Arrangements for welfare, health and safety exceed expectations. The school
premises are very good although some classrooms can get overcrowded. Systems
and procedures are highly effective in ensuring the wellbeing of students across the
school, in residential homes and with host families. Thorough risk assessments are in
place and staff are appropriately trained to ensure students remain safe.
Relationships are warm and friendly and contribute to excellent student care and
welfare. Attendance monitoring is excellent and systems for reporting the absence
of tier 4 students are well managed. Safeguarding arrangements are excellent, with
a comprehensive policy and clear, well managed procedures. Arrangements for
supporting students under 18 years are excellent.
2.3
Leadership and management exceed expectations, with clear leadership provided by
the principal. Responsibilities for managing the school are clearly delegated and the
directors monitor the school’s quality assurance processes well. Policies and
procedures are coherent, well promoted and effective. All legal compliances are in
place. Management information systems are secure and contribute to the welfare
and safety of students. School self-evaluation is honest and accurate and informs
the school development plan. Staff responsibilities are well defined and supported
by highly effective communication. High quality staff are appointed and retained
and there is a strong commitment to effective continuing professional development.

WSE is one of the oldest English language
schools in the UK and since its foundation in
1964 it has earned a reputation for quality and
excellence. We have been named as one of the
top UK Centres of Excellence, according to
our British Council Inspection reports. This is
an honour of which we are justifiably proud
and one that we all work hard to maintain.
We believe strongly in the importance of education and
have developed a range of courses designed to improve
your understanding of the English language and
develop your confidence in its use. Our continued
success is largely down to the talent of our staff, the
dedication they devote to our students and the pride
they take in the school. A lot of our staff have been with
us for many years and I myself started here as a teacher
over 20 years ago!
The charming Edwardian façade of our main building
hides a busy school with excellent educational and
recreational facilities, including a beautiful garden
where you can relax between lessons. The London
Exam Centre is part of WSE and is a dedicated test site
for the Cambridge Examinations, IELTS and PTE
Academic.
Depending on the time of year, we have between 230
and 380 students, from up to 60 different countries,
studying at any one time. This gives a wonderful
opportunity to make new friends from around the
world, learn about each other’s cultures and, most
importantly, speak English together!
What the ISI say about us
Relationships are warm and friendly
and contribute to excellent student care
and welfare.

Our school is situated right in the centre of
Wimbledon in a spacious, typically English
Edwardian house, which still has its original
antique fireplaces and beautiful stained glass
windows. In addition to light, airy spaces for
relaxation, we are one of the few London
schools with a garden, where you can sit
outside and enjoy the changing seasons.
WSE has a friendly, relaxed atmosphere,
thanks to our attractive premises and the
warmth and dedication of our staff.
What the ISI say about us
Our Facilities
We have 25 well-equipped classrooms, 10 of which
have interactive whiteboards. If you’d like to do some
extra work, there is also a multimedia Study Centre
with a manager available every afternoon to help you
with your individual study programme. We also have
a reading library, with a range of books to suit every
taste. There is WiFi access throughout the school and
free Internet access from our computers.
Your Time
Your time outside the classroom can be just as
important in developing your language skills as your
time spent in lessons, so our large common room is a
popular place for students to socialise and relax. There
are games, newspapers and magazines, as well as PCs,
a TV and DVD player - you can borrow DVDs from our
large film library. We also encourage all our students to
take part in the many sports and social activities on
offer.
Refreshments can be bought from our snack-bar, or you
can visit one of the many cafés, restaurants, shops and
fast-food outlets close to the school.
There are many opportunities to
socialise and make friends, including
comfortable, welcoming and wellresourced social areas.
Wimbledon School of English | London
“You have really good facilities in school
and the common room is great for meeting
and making friends. I love the garden - I
spent time there in summer, in autumn we
had lunch and chatted there and when it
was winter I played with my friends in the
snow. I think the atmosphere in school is
the best in London.”
