About the school

The Bell story began over a half a century ago when a young British army officer – Lieutenant Frank Bell – was captured as a prisoner of war. Confronting the daily hardship and boredom of prison life, Frank began teaching his fellow prisoners Spanish and French, a simple act of defiance that quickly led to the creation of a secret university – teaching a broad range of subjects – right there in the harsh conditions of the prison camp.

Each year we help over 100,000 students, from more than 120 countries learn English through one of our 37 worldwide teaching centres and e-channels.


Bell is looking for accommodation with caring and welcoming Homestays for our students in Bedgebury (Kent), Cambridge and London.
