Our students

One of the best things about our School is the students. There are always other students at our School who are happy to chat, help and offer advice, they are amazing!

At Portland School of English we teach students from all over the world and since the school first opened we have welcomed students from more than 50 countries. The wide mix of people and cultures make the school a great place for you to learn and great place for us to teach.

For students starting lessons on Monday you will be invited to our weekly welcome session. Here you can meet other new students, learn about the school, the teachers and our support services. A copy of our Student Guide will also be available to help you with any other questions you might have.

Making you feel welcome and helping you to settle in quickly when you arrive is all part of the PSE service. Our reception team are all former students so they know everything there is to know about the difficulties you might face when starting life in a new school and a new city. Between them they also speak more than five languages and are always available to help with practical issues.
