The English College in Prague provides a broad and balanced education in English for children between the ages of 13 and 19, 80% of whom are Czech nationals and the remainder English-speaking expatriates, drawn from 25 nationalities. The College opened in September 1994 with over a hundred pupils and will grow to a maximum of 320, probably in September 2002.

The English College in Prague has been accepted as part of the Czech educational network as a six-year Gymnázium and pupils are prepared for the International General Certificate of Education, the International Baccalaureate and Czech Maturita.

The teaching staff at The English College in Prague is an experienced graduate body of men and women, drawn from English-speaking countries worldwide as well as from the Czech Republic. Classes contain no more than 25 pupils in the IGCSE years and between 12 and 18 in the IB years.

All pupils take part in a wide range of extra-curricular activities, which includes music, art, drama, debating, physical education and visits to the theatre. The pastoral organization of the College encourages a positive relationship between pupils and members of staff and between the different nationalities.

The English College in Prague building used by the English College was initially constructed as a school in 1889 and was completely re-furbished and re-equipped during 1994, in 1996 and again in 2000, when an extension was added.

All pupils at The English College in Prague are charged fees, but sponsors in both the United Kingdom and the Czech Republic have established a Bursary Fund, enabling reduced-fee places to be available for Czech pupils. Up to 50 pupils are admitted each year at 13+. Entry at other ages is dependent upon vacancies being available. Interviews for prospective pupils and their parents begin in October each year and the Entrance and Scholarship Examination is held in April.
