Alan Fox
Programme Director

Each student’s personal learning programme is organised by Alan Fox in collaboration with the teaching staff in our Independent Schools and State Colleges. Alan Fox has had over twenty years’ experience as a teacher and lecturer of Modern Languages in England, France and Germany. Furthermore he was formerly a peripatetic languages teacher in the County of Shropshire, Central England and consequently enjoys excellent relations with many schools in the area. Throughout our study programme Shrewsbury Education Service acts as a constant point of support for students and teachers, ensuring maximum success for each individual.

Our Educational Programme

Shrewsbury Education Service provides British National Curriculum courses in selected State Schools and Colleges and Independent Schools and delivers specialised programmes in English as a Foreign Language. Our State Schools and Colleges, in the beautiful county of Shropshire, in Central England, are distinguished by their high academic achievement and outstanding facilities, often in historic buildings and in idyllic settings. Throughout the programme we are constantly active on behalf of our students, the teaching staff and students' parents, fostering a sense of partnership amongst them and providing the support which is necessary for our students' academic and personal success.

"Bliss was it in that dawn to be alive, But to be young was very heaven!" - William Wordsworth

Our provision has flourished over the years through the achievements of the many International students who have entrusted our staff not only with their educational needs but also with their individual development. Our students regularly attain high levels of success in their chosen education field as well as in their preferred extra curricular pursuits. Former students have obtained places at elite British universities including Oxford and Cambridge, while others have chosen to return to their home countries to embark upon their university education. In addition, a number of past students have also progressed to represent their countries in sport or have excelled in the fields of music and drama.
