The newly renovated Stafford House Toronto school
Stafford House unveils renovated Toronto school

Global English language brand Stafford House International has unveiled the renovations to its Toronto, Canada, school.

The redesign of the centre follows Stafford House International's acquisition of the Omnicom School of Languages centres in Toronto and Calgary last year, and features new technology throughout the school, including touch-screen, interactive TVs in each room.


Magdalena Link, Director, Business Development-Canada for Stafford House, explained, "We wanted to create a space where ultimately our customers don't want to leave. Combining an urban-like, open-space area for our students where they hang out when not in class allowed us to add an extra layer to the overall client experience.  We know that students learn best when they are comfortable in their environment and we believe we have created that setting here in Toronto as we have in our other locations."


She continued, "Once again we brought the Mystery Design team to work on this project who created a design that incorporated graphics of Toronto and its landmarks visible throughout the school. We are very pleased with the results and have had wonderful feedback from our students and agents so far."


A special opening ceremony last week was attended by 100 guests, including agent partners.  


Anna Ryzhova, Owner of CanadaPoint, was one of the agents in attendance, and commented, "The transformation of Stafford House Toronto is something you could hardly believe is possible, starting with the complete renovation of the common areas and classrooms - everything looks modern, fresh and colourful - together with a new curriculum and new energetic school spirit." 


Stafford House, part of Cambridge Education Group,offers year-round courses in 10 centres in the UK, USA and Canada, as well as a portfolio of junior summer programmes in 12 locations.
