Since 1955, Bell has provided outstanding education to students from around the world, transforming the lives of over one million people. Through our teaching approach developed with an Emeritus Professor at the University of Cambridge, The Bell Way encourages students to aim high, exceed their learning goals and become confident users of the English Language.

Bell was awarded 14 points of excellence in their recent British Council inspection, and the Independent Schools Inspectorate (ISI) report in June 2018 also awarded them an ‘excellent’ rating: “Teaching is excellent and results in high levels of student progress. Teachers are experienced, well-qualified and have excellent subject knowledge.” 

Bell also prides itself on its nationality mix, and high-level of student care – with small class sizes, you can also expect a participative and personalised experience during your studies.

University Foundation Programme

Choose to study either a Business, Science and Engineering, Humanities or Law Foundation to help you progress to a UK or English-medium University in your chosen discipline. On successful completion of Bell’s University Foundation Programme, we guarantee students will be offered a place at a University in the UK.

Students also have the opportunity to connect with over 32 of our partner universities through various events, activities and university trips.

Bell exclusively hosts the University +You fair where students meet a selection of universities from across the UK. We also offer a weekly programme of talks led by visiting speakers and lecturers from universities, to give students an insight into university life.

Masters Preparation Programme

For students who have graduated from university and want to study a postgraduate course in the UK, or a medium-speaking university, this course prepares you for every aspect of postgraduate study. It will improve your English, teach you the study skills for success on a Masters degree, and help you get the IELTS or GMAT score you need.


Students can choose from either homestay accommodation with a local family or residential accommodation a short walk from the school.


Bell’s University Foundation Pathways takes place at their Cambridge school. Cambridge has been home to Bell since 1955, it offers a picturesque study location, but you can easily access the historic city centre from the school. The school features impressive study, social and leisure facilities, including a games room, outdoor leisure and dining facilities as well as an on-site restaurant.
