About Bayswater Education


We want to inspire and educate the next generation.


Bayswater Education was established in 2017 by a team of experienced professionals in the international education industry. The business is for profit but has a social mission at its core. The commitment to operate on a one for one basis is enshrined in our business. 


For every week of tuition that a student studies with us, we will give a week of education to underprivileged people from where our students are recruited. We set out to create a global network of  Colleges, focusing initially on teaching English to International students.  


By the end of 2022 the group consisted of a portfolio of year-round locations (in the UK, France, South Africa, and Canada), English and Vocational courses, and a large summer school business.


Our Bayswater Summer operation is back for 2023 and we are looking for experienced and enthusiastic summer staff to deliver successful experiences for our clients.
