Inspection Reports for Independent English School,
In October 2016 Bloomsbury International achieved the highest recognition from ISI again! We would like to thank our ever-supportive students, professional and diligent partners, keenly dedicated teachers and our first-class team for always striving to be the best in education and student services.
The latest ISI report confirms that Bloomsbury International EXCEEDS EXPECTATIONS in each section of the framework: from our teaching quality, course design and learner achievement to student welfare, pastoral support, school facilities and the effectiveness of leadership and management.
