Director Iris Ketterick B.Ed, TEFL, CELTA

irisAfter successfully completing an honours degree in Education and a postgraduate diploma in Psychology, I founded the school in 2012 to give children the opportunity to come to Ireland and study English in a safe environment. I love working with teenagers and I am an enthusiastic educator. Today, our students are made up of all age groups and come from all over the world.

Quality lessons and a relaxed atmosphere are priorities in our school. My aim is to help people to achieve their language goals and give them an opportunity to experience the culture and lifestyle that Ireland offers.
