Education at Ellendel is rich in possibility and opportunity. Our aim is to enrich the lives of our students to help them achieve their full potential, embrace their individuality and develop their own interests.
Creative, passionate, articulate, confident, open-minded, empathetic and resilient are some of the characteristics that define Ellendel students.
We offer a bespoke programme of study that is regularly updated to ensure our young people leave Ellendel equipped with the skills they need for life. Not only do we want our students to be confident and articulate communicators, we also want them to develop an appreciation for literature, to be able to think creatively and express themselves freely. Our lessons develop the higher-level cognitive skill areas of Communication, Creativity, Critical Thinking, Problem Solving and Cultural Intelligence/Global Awareness, as well as social emotional skill areas such as Self-Awareness, Empathy, Relationship skills, Self-Regulation and Decision making.

Fun and Life Skills
"We've been really happy with M's progress at Ellendel. She has become such a confident speaker: solo in exams, with friends and family or in front of an audience of unknown people. It's such an important skill to have as you progress through life and Ellendel has equipped her well. Whilst taking LAMDA exams is useful as an indicator of progress; the weekly lessons practise discussion, role play, pronunciation and the atmosphere is always friendly and fun. "
"My daughter has been with Ellendel over 5 yrs, she will be 17 this year and still enjoy her sessions and LAMDA exams. She looks forward to doing her exams, that’s all because of the Laura’s full attention and support is given. Once, my daughter enjoys it, I’m very happy! Thank you Laura’s "
"My both daughters enjoy The Ellendel classes very much. They both always look forward to the classes. My older one was very shy and quiet in the beginning. Laura and Laura have always encouraged her and we can see how her confidence has grown now. She is always ready to participate in various activities. My younger one has joined the classes recently and she is already loving them. We highly recommend these classes. Thank you. "
