Teaching approach

Learning the Bell Way

Benefit from over 60 years of educational expertise. Our experts and an Emeritus Professor from the University of Cambridge developed The Bell Way, our unique teaching approach. The six principles below are core to everything we do and our commitment to your learning success.

High expectations

We want you to be the best you can be

Clarity of learning

them and what to do next. You will receive intensive preparation for your goal of a high IELTS score. Our advisors will provide expert guidance for a successful university application so you receive the university offers you want.

Unique individual

Teacher and student

We adapt your learning to suit you

Your teacher will work with you to create a personal study plan, designed around your learning needs and goals. Our choice of pathways enables you to prepare for the degree that matters to you. Our dedicated teachers offer a higher education advisory service to help you with your choice of university and application.

Learning everywhere


We help you to learn everywhere

We’ll show you how to achieve your goals faster by including learning in every part of your day. We have a programme of lectures from experienced academic and industry professionals. We organise visits to top university cities to help you make your university choice

Assessment as learning

We give you regular feedback to make you a better learner

You will work with your teacher to review your successes and identify areas for development. We will give you feedback on your progress every step of the way, including weekly 1 to 1 tutorials. You will become an independent learner, self-evaluating your work, ready for life at a UK university.

Organisational learning

We never stop learning

At Bell, we are all students. We are passionate about education and never stop learning or striving to be the best we can be, setting ourselves high expectations and challenging goals, just like the ones we set you. We partner with 25 universities in the UK. Bell’s 2015 report from the Independent Schools Inspectorate praised our “culture of continuous improvement”.
