The ILG family of schools and nurseries has always had an international dimension to their settings given the location of each of them in London. A logical progression has been to open up applications to the schools and nurseries from families who live outside the United Kingdom. We have the ability to issue CAS and sponsor pupils to study in the UK and this new addition has resulted in ILG becoming a truly global educational group.

Whether you are a family who may be spending a few months or a term in London or looking to provide an education to transfer to some of the top English Senior Schools and then university ILG has the right setting for you.

With schools based in various areas in London there is a school or nursery for you and your family with us. Our international packages includes the following:

  • Administration accompanying CAS and VISA application
  • Tuition Fees at the location
  • EAL support in the setting
  • Assistance with settling including registering with a Doctor and setting up a bank account
  • Introductions to local estate agents with a view to renting or purchasing property in London

General Visa Requirements:

To enrol at our school, students must hold the appropriate immigration status. Enrolment is not possible for students with an incorrect visa within the UK. Please use the UK government’s website to verify the right visa for entry: Check UK Visa. Parents or guardians accompanying students must also have the proper status for residing in the UK during their children’s enrolment.

We strongly recommend families utilise the UK government’s website to confirm their visa requirements. Professional legal advice is recommended if needed. Contact Mr. Ben Elton at ECA Legal for such counsel:

Parent of a Child Student Visa:

Students needing a Child Student Visa can obtain a Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies (CAS) from our school. This document can be used by students to apply at the appropriate consulate. In order to ensure a smooth and efficient visa application process, we kindly request that any students or families requiring a Child Student Visa use the professional visa and immigration services provided by ECA Legal. As a regulated immigration firm based in the UK, ECA Legal is dedicated to assessing your visa documents, working closely with the school to approve the CAS assignment, and guiding you through the entire visa application process. They will act as your legal representative, preparing and submitting your child’s visa application along with the necessary supporting documents.

Kindly note that this invaluable service incurs an additional cost of £950 per student visa application. For parents seeking a Parent of a Child Student visa, there is an additional cost of £650 per application. Additionally, please be aware of the supplementary charges from UK Visas and Immigration, such as the Immigration Health Surcharge. To streamline this process, we emphasise that payments for these services are to be made directly to ECA Legal, ensuring a secure and efficient transaction.

Special Arrangement for Full Year’s Fees (3 terms):

As a token of our appreciation for your commitment to your child’s education, Inspired Learning Group has crafted a special arrangement. Families opting to pay the full year’s fees in advance (3 terms) will have the £950 visa application legal fee associated with the Child Student Visa application absorbed by Inspired Learning Group. It’s important to note that this arrangement excludes students who receive a scholarship or bursary from the school.

We look forward to welcoming your child to an ILG school and facilitating a smooth transition into this exciting chapter of their academic journey.
