St. John’s Wood School of English

Academy SJW (St John’s Wood School of English) was founded in 1952, and was one of the first English Language schools to be established in London.

SJW is a small, family-owned school with seven classrooms and a maximum of 70 students.

At SJW, no one is a stranger – we believe that our clients are also our friends, and in fact, around 25% of people studying at SJW are friends, relatives or colleagues of former SJW students, or clients making a return visit!

SJW is located in the St John’s Wood area of central London, in Travel Zone two. It is a pleasant, residential part of the city and there are numerous pubs, cafes and restaurants nearby. The world famous Regent’s Park is a 15 minute stroll from SJW, and the EMI Studio, where The Beatles recorded their albums, is five minutes away in Abbey Road.

SJW has a comfortable Students’ Lounge, with wide-screen TV, newspapers and magazines, and tea/coffee facilities. Each classroom contains a ‘mini-library’ from which students can freely borrow a wide range of books – all at a language level appropriate to the class. Audio and video DVDs can also be borrowed. Free Wifi access is available at lunchtimes.
