Can I school survive with only 3 classrooms?

Unread post by Ballers »

In the opinion of the forum members, can a language school survive/prosper with just 3 classrooms?
Open all year round with 3 permanent teachers.
About 10 miles outside a major EFL destination city in the UK?

I would be interested to hear forum member views.

Interesting question - and impossible to answer without a bit more background info. Still, I'll offer my thoughts anyway :lol:

Any school has the potential to succeed; a bit of a banal statement, I know, but what I mean is that being 10 miles outside of where it's happening needn't be detrimental to success, nor only having 3 classrooms. Three permanent (full-time?) teachers seems a bit excessive - you might want to consider getting rid of one and employing someone to work on a temporary basis during peak periods.

Being outside the main town you'll have to do some clever marketing to get EFL students to travel out of town. You may also want to invest in e-learning to try to gain students who do not necessarily need to be on the premises, at least not all the time. Short, closed courses could also be a good move - ESP/EAP/Business courses might work well here depending on the area.
Good luck

Just an annecdote, our school is doing ok with 4 classrooms and 3 full time teachers (more part time), but we are looking to grow in the next 2 years to handle more students.

An estimated 93 million children worldwide live with disabilities. Inclusive education means all children in the same classrooms, in the same schools.
