English school in San Francisco

Rising above the Pacific on a cluster of hills, San Francisco is a city where the sky seems within reach

Our San Francisco school

With every hilltop revealing a panorama of faraway horizons, it’s no wonder that San Francisco prides itself on its sense of adventure. From the Gold Rush to the Summer of Love to the tech boom, this open-minded city has always loved a big new idea. Twitter and Instagram have homes here, alongside a lively art, music and food scene.


We have delayed the reopening of our San Francisco school due to Coronavirus. Our Seattle school reopened on 31 August with enhanced safety measures. Find out more.

  • Our school is located in the Union Square area, just moments away from Macy’s and the Museum of Modern Art.
  • No need for a car – stops for bus, light rail and cable car routes across the city are just moments away
  • Students receive discounts for local businesses – including the tempting bakery on the ground floor
  • Our school organizes regular weekend trips to Yosemite, Napa Valley, Los Angeles and beyond – and staff are happy to help you plan your own adventures
