Working with students in tutor groups allows us to build relationships in a unique way. The soft skills that students gain through tutor time activities such as discussion, teamwork and presentation skills are central to the IB diploma and are important for future study and careers.
The study of humanity itself, through the lenses of philosophy, history, geography and the social sciences, will open your eyes to the world you live in, and lay the foundation of the world you hope to create.

To adapt the words of C.L.R.James: The study of language and literature has “ a technical foundation. To enjoy it does not require technical knowledge, but analysis that is not technically based is mere impressionism.”

At the English College we do our best to ensure that students are given the information and advice that they need to apply to the top universities throughout the world. In addition, we organize yearly work experience programme with top companies in both Prague and London.
Pastoral care is central to our work at ECP - everything depends on it. In Ventus we try to make sure that the pastoral needs of all our students are met, and that we take an active, light-hearted but serious approach to all the house competitions and activities.
