Welcome to
CES Leeds

Founded in 1979 on the North side of Dublin Ireland, CES has today grown into an international language school with 8 year round centres in Ireland, England, Scotland and Canada. We use our over 40 years’ experience and expertise to teach the English language to students from across the globe.

CES is a family run language school. We are proud of our history and of all the students who have studied with us, and are always eager to welcome new students to one of our schools. CES Leeds is located in the heart of the city’s legal and financial district, and is just a short walk from the main bus and train stations. Housed in a historic red-brick Georgian Terrace, CES Leeds is a modern and spacious school. CES Leeds is also an official IELTS test centre and a CELTA teacher training school.

Choosing Your Accommodation

Despite the growing popularity of coffee, most British people will still agree that nothing beats a good cup of tea! It is lucky then that Yorkshire is the home of British tea and the residents of Leeds like nothing better than to sit down with a nice cuppa and have a chat about the weather, politics, or simply what has happened that day. This positive attitude has led to Yorkshire people being named as the most welcoming in England, and the perfect homestay for students who want the opportunity to use their English in a more natural environment with native speakers.

Homestay accommodation

Homestays in Leeds are based in the pleasant surrounding neighbourhoods rather than the city centre which means that students will have an average journey time of around 30 – 40 minutes to the school. Our city centre location and the city’s excellent bus and train routes make travelling through Leeds a pleasure and students often use the journey to take in the fabulous architecture and parklands.
