Message from Nic
My name is Nic Starkey and I’m the new principal at the Greenwich School of Oxford International.
After 10 years living overseas, the last 5 of which were spent in Italy working as the Director of Studies at a private language school, I returned to the UK this summer.
Before taking up the principal role in Oxford, I spent my time at one of Oxford International’s Junior Centres. It was my sixth summer with Oxford International, having previously worked in our Edinburgh summer centre as the Centre Manager for a number of years.
I’m now embracing the challenge of delivering an exceptional experience to everyone who comes through the door at our Greenwich school. In a fast-moving and competitive sector, I’m proud to lead a team here which counts every single person to be as important as the next, be it an individual adult or a junior in one of our visiting groups.
I am looking forward to continuing the evolution of our adult education programmes and overseeing the much-anticipated launch of our English Plus programmes for groups – exciting developments that we’re really proud of.
We are constantly striving to be the best we can be, so that our students return home completely satisfied – with our people, with our academic programme, with their accommodation, with their social programme and with their overall experience with us.
I am of course available to speak with you to answer any questions and get some feedback from you, so please feel free to get in touch!
Our modern English language school in London is uniquely located in the historic Royal Borough of Greenwich.
Studying in a beautiful building in a historic area of the city, students have the energy and excitement of Brighton on their doorstep.
