English for Au Pairs

Due to the new regulations following Brexit, it is no longer possible for EU citizens to come to the UK as Au Pairs. Please check with the Government website before making any arrangements.

We have lessons in English especially designed for au pairs from all over the world.  The lessons are a great place to learn English, get a qualification and meet friends!



The classes prepare students for the internationally recognised Cambridge exams; CAE, FCE and PET. The course is from September until July but students can join a class at any time.    


Class times

Students come to class twice a week for a total of 3 hours and lessons take place during the day between 10.00 and 14.45.          

You can find exact times, dates and prices under  ‘Class times and cost’

Social life

The school holds coffee mornings and events such as the annual Christmas lunch to help students to socialise together and meet students from other classes. We also give advice on where to visit at the weekend and places to go in Manchester (Pippa’s ex-career working for the British Tourist Authority is especially helpful for advice on trips and sightseeing!)
