Kaplan’s English school in Edinburgh got the best score in the country according to a report by Education Scotland, which is an Executive Agency of the Scottish Government. This school was given top honors among seven colleges in the country from Education Scotland, which is tasked with improving the quality of the country’s education system.

The report went on to say that the college has high quality learning and teaching processes in place, as well as effective leadership for learning and teaching and quality culture.
The principal of the school, Ms. Rachele Walker, was delighted to hear the news. “This recent recognition of the dedication and drive of the Edinburgh staff to ensure an experience of a lifetime for all our students is well-deserved praise,” she said. At the heart of the school is “Providing excellent customer services by putting students first – from the moment they decide to study their to the last day of their course and beyond.” A warm Scottish welcome is ready for all students.
