SKOLA has provided education for children, adults and families for nearly 50 years.
From the start, the school founders, Niels and Ann Toettcher, placed students at the heart of everything they did. They wanted to grow their student's sense of identity by developing their confidence to communicate.
School founders believe this only comes from great teachers on exciting courses with enriching experiences. The school's staff continues with that philosophy today and look forward to seeing you very soon.
The School's digital platform allows students to communicate with teachers with a tablet.
Teachers ask questions and get answers from every student. This allows teachers to feedback to the each student in a more focused way and for students to learn from each other.
The platform is available for students all year round students, and for older students on our summer programme.
Regarding its students' time in London outside the classroom, the school provides many accommodation options, a door-to-door minibus service and airport transfers from all terminals.
For children aged 12 years or more travelling alone we arrange homestay accommodation. We also have limited availability of homestay accommodation for parents with children. Families who wish to look for apartment or hotel accommodation should contact us.
Parents, children and hosts are provided with 24 hour contact telephone numbers for the accommodation agencies and the schools. SKOLA has a dedicated staff member to assist you or your child with any problems or questions regarding accommodation.
Children are asked regularly during their stay about their accommodation, the food and their happiness with the arrangements. All their feedback is read and followed up if necessary and feedback on hosts is recorded and monitored.
The minimum age for unaccompanied children in homestay is 12 years old. Unaccompanied children younger than 14 years must use the school bus service.
We recommend our excellent door-to-door car service to get to school. Share a taxi with other students or bring your kids to school with you whilst you study next door.
Children under 14 year and students in homestay must book the car service or be accompanied to and from school by an adult. Children aged 14+ can travel independently to and from school with written permission from their parents.
SKOLA offers airport transfers from all London airports and rail terminals. For safety and security unaccompanied children (under 18) must book arrival and departure transfers. Any alternative arrangements must be communicated in advance to the school.
The school uses Airport Angels to Meet and Greet the students in the arrivals hall. They will accompany the students to an Atlas Taxi. Airport Angels also assist with Departure check in for unaccompanied children.
