Open Day at the ECP

Congratulations to ECP students and staff on another successful Open Day. There was steady stream of prospective students and their parents through the doors of the English College. Our current students took visitors on a tour of the school’s facilities. One parent said: “We had an excellent tour by a Year 2 student and were amazed at her confidence, enthusiasm and level of English.”

A highlight of the tour was the state-of-the-art Science laboratories, described by a PhD student as better than the labs at Charles University! Another was the new Drama Studio where students perform and direct their own productions in front of a live audience.

Our visitors were also able to join ECP students in their normal lessons to see how our classrooms are places of inquiry and innovation. There is an emphasis on collaborative working and healthy debate and students are treated as individuals.

Dr Nigel Brown said: “It was great to be able to welcome so many visitors into the College for our second Open Day this year. They all appreciated the opportunity to meet our students and to ask them questions. We heard many favourable comparisons between our style of education and the methods prospective students experience in their current schools. We believe that our students, who leave the English College with the full IB Diploma, are better equipped to begin their university careers.”

The third and final Open Day of this academic year will take place on Tuesday 20 February.
