NW-narrowLeicester Language Academy (LLA) is an established private college, teaching English as a Foreign Language (EFL), located in a beautiful Georgian building on the historic New Walk of Leicester, only 65 minutes by train from central London.

The School of English has many years of experience. We run a variety of high quality English language courses and personalised programmes of English Language tuition, such as English as a Foreign Language (EFL), IELTS preparation courses and English for Academic purposes (EAP).

Our courses are designed to flexibly meet the individual needs of our students. Courses may be as short as two weeks; others, including English Language, can be as long as eleven months.


With the continued success of the our English language school, we are pleased to introduce the Leicester Science Academy and New Walk Student Support Services. We have created these departments in response to demand for these very different services.

Over the past three years, we have responded to requests of all kinds from students from GCSE to degree level (and beyond), and now we now see the benefit of running these activities separately, with dedicated staff and specialists in the Sciences, ready to assist with a wide range of academic and pastoral situations. Some students just need help catching up with material missed through illness, while others find a particular module is causing problems, but we can help with almost anything that might be causing problems.

The Leicester Science Academy can offer rigourous, realistic training in the sciences from GCSE up to degree level, and proofreading up Master’s level.

The New Walk Student Support Centre is a drop-in centre that can help with everything else. We were students ourselves, once, and we haven’t forgotten what it’s like.
Come and talk to us if you think it might be useful. You never know – it might make all the difference.
