About Us

Select English London is a privately owned and managed school that we started in 2003 on the beautiful Victorian premises of the former Angloschool. This campus is an addition to our year-round school in Cambridge and other summer centres in the UK that are highly respected worldwide.

We are a family run business that is comprised of the husband and wife team of Mervyn and Helena Martin, while our daughter Hanna Claydon is the Director of Select English. Because of this we like to think a family atmosphere permeates our schools. We are very much a hands-on team and like to visit our campuses regularly. When you see us at Select English London feel free to say hello.

Our accomplished principal is Steve Mann who first joined Select English as a teacher in 1996 after teaching and studying abroad for 10 years. This first hand experience of learning a language far from home has given him the perfect insight into running our school. In 2005 he was promoted to the position of principal and now heads the Select English team that can comprise up to 10 teachers. Steve carefully selects our academic staff for their professionalism, enthusiasm and experience. Thanks to this our staff and school enjoys a reputation we are all proud of. Steve welcomes any enquiries you may have about the school or the courses.
