The Stirling School of English is a voluntary organisation that aims to provide low-cost English language tuition to all whose first language is not English, regardless of ability, ethnicity and political or religious beliefs. We try to be as flexible as possible to meet students’ needs while maintaining a high standard of learning.

Our aim is not only to provide English language teaching, but also to create a community where foreign students feel accepted and ‘at home’. Coming to a foreign country, not knowing anybody and not speaking the language well can be daunting. The Stirling School of English is a place where students can meet other students, young children can be left safely in the creche, and friendships are formed. All cultures are valued and accepted.

Over 80 students come to English classes each week and we’ve had students from more than 40 countries spanning 5 continents. While some fit easily into a beginners, intermediate or advanced group, others may have special needs. Some students may have lived in Scotland for a number of years and can speak English but not write it, whilst other students may have learnt a lot of grammar and vocabulary in their home country but are hardly able to understand the Scots or speak the language. We aim to help anyone who wants to learn.


Stirling School of English is a registered Charity in Scotland No SC029640

  1. Buenas, estoy viviendo en Stirling y yendo a las clases de lunes a miércoles. Mi problema es que soy au pair y en verano trabajo más, por lo que mi familia no sabe los horarios hasta el días anterior o incluso el mismo día por la mañana. Hasta el momento solo me han dicho que en verano habría días que trabajaría durante todo el día, otros solo por la mañana y otros solo por la tarde. Me preguntaba si al faltar a clase por trabajo podría disminuir el precio de las clases.

    • Thank you for your comment, unfortunately attendance of the Summer School classes is required on a weekly basis, as missing days/classes will disrupt the teaching schedule. Summer School will be running throughout July, and it is not necessary for you to attend all four weeks, just one that you can commit to. Please let us know if you require any further details about the Summer School programme.
