Mission Statement

EngXcel’s mission is to respect equality, diversity and inclusion in helping people from the global community to learn English.

They aim to provide a supportive and welcoming environment which enables all students to develop their English language skills to the full and to explore British life and values, as well as encouraging tolerance and cultural awareness among all staff, students and partners.

Ensuring comfort, safety and well-being in their school community is at the heart of everything they do.


They provide the English-language element of BSC’s International Summer School.

BSC ISS operates a six-week summer school split into three courses:

Course 1:   5-19 July

Course 2:   19 July – 2 August

Course 3:   2-16 August

They work with young learners aged 8-17 years. Following level assessments on their first morning, students are grouped into classes (max. 16 students) appropriate to their age and level of English, using the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (A1-C2).

BSC ISS offers excellent classroom and teaching facilities with up-to-date IT and AV equipment in every room. It is their expectation that teaching staff will use this equipment to provide the best possible language-learning experience that will encourage engagement and interaction from all participants.

With an entirely new intake of students every two weeks, it is permissible to reuse course planning and material, vastly reducing the amount of preparation time required.

At the end of each two-week course, teachers will produce a short report for each of their students. This will be presented along with their attendance certificate.
