About Us

BEET was established by its founder, Clive Barrow, in 1979 with just 3 students! Since that time it’s grown in size but firmly remains an independent, family-run school. We aim to help each and every one of our students to achieve their English language goals in a warm and friendly atmosphere. Our students’ happiness is our priority, they come first!

We operate an open-door policy at all times, this means our students are always able to come to us whenever they feel the need, they don’t need an appointment to talk to us, we are always on-hand to help.


We are medium-sized which makes it easier for us to provide a high level of care and attention. Our students often tell us BEET is like their second home!

We have an average of 140 students from between 20 and 40 countries; originally a charming 19th century church school building, BEET now also benefits from the latest technology.

We firmly believe in quality, and are proud to be ranked one of the
Top British Council Accredited schools in the UK
