The Stirling School of English is a voluntary organisation that aims to provide low-cost English language tuition to all whose first language is not English, regardless of ability, ethnicity and political or religious beliefs. We try to be as flexible as possible to meet students’ needs while maintaining a high standard of learning.
Our aim is not only to provide English language teaching, but also to create a community where foreign students feel accepted and ‘at home’. Coming to a foreign country, not knowing anybody and not speaking the language well can be daunting. The Stirling School of English is a place where students can meet other students, young children can be left safely in the creche, and friendships are formed. All cultures are valued and accepted.
Over 70 students come to English classes each week and we’ve had students from more than 25 countries spanning 5 continents. While some fit easily into a beginners, intermediate or advanced group, others may have special needs. Some students may have lived in Scotland for a number of years and can speak English but not write it, whilst other students may have learnt a lot of grammar and vocabulary in their home country but are hardly able to understand the Scots or speak the language. We aim to help anyone who wants to learn.
Stirling School of English is a registered Charity in Scotland No SC029640
We have a duty of care to our tutors and students and the Board made the decision that the School will run classes online until 1st June, after which they will review the situation. In order for the Board to be fully informed, a subcommittee will meet to review the latest government advice.
The new semester will start on Monday 18th January and finish on Tuesday 1st June. That is 16 weeks of teaching (excluding the February and Spring break break).
