Choose Bell and 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 ensure your child is both challenged and supported.
Learning the Bell Way
We want students to dream big
We want our students to be the best they can be and have the confidence to accomplish anything. We reward excellence with end-of-course awards and a Bell Ambassador programme.
Clarity of learning
We show students a clear path to success
The aims of every lesson and activity and how to succeed are always clear. Every student takes home a portfolio as a record of their progress, with project work, ‘can-do’ statements and an end-of-course certificate.
We adapt lessons to suit your child
We know every student is special and our teachers and activity leaders are skilled in different approaches to learning. We are always happy to shape learning around a student’s individual goals.
We teach inside and outside the classroom
Students learn faster and more successfully when they use English all the time and in a range of situations. We encourage consistent use of English throughout each part of the day and hold an English Challenge Day on each course which uses games and competitions to make communication fun.
Assessment as learning
We give regular feedback
Students become better learners with regular feedback. We review their progress and show clear next steps on their learning journey.
We never stop learning ourselves
We believe in lifelong learning and always strive to be the best for our students. Our latest British Council inspection (2015) ranked our multi-centre young learner courses in the top 3 in the UK for teaching.
