In 2014 CIE proudly celebrated 40 years of outstanding achievement. Founded in 1974 by the owner, Mr Kenichi Ikeno, to promote English Language courses in an academic context, CIE has built an excellent reputation for the quality of its courses, the success of its students and the friendly and supportive atmosphere at the school.
CIE is accredited by both the British Council and the Independent Schools Inspectorate and we are grateful to these institutions for their support and encouragement. Our HTS status enables us to accept Tier 4 students and with this background, we look to the future with optimism. We are establishing closer links with our parent company in Tokyo with the result that our staff make regular visits to Japan. These visits not only assist in closer cooperation but also give our staff insights into a fascinating culture. In fact working at CIE is an educational and enriching experience for both students and teachers.
