"Quality and Caring"

We are not supposed to be teaching English, we are supposed to be creating an environment where learning can take place.

Conosci il nostro team

Jemima – London


“Hi! I come from the London’s East End where we consider curry a traditional English dish(!) and I’ve been living in Pisa for just over one year now. I’m a real chatterbox and love being creative – you’ll often find me covered in glue after attempting to make a 3D family tree!”.

David Moynihan – London


“Hello! I’m David, a new teacher at the Pontedera School. I’m very happy to be part of this friendly school.
I’m originally from London and now I live in Quattro Strade, close to Pontedera.
In my free time I like riding my bike in the countryside and exploring new towns and sights in the tuscan region”.

Sarah – Romford


“I live in San Giovanni alla Vena with my family. I love reading classic novels, especially those written by my favourite author Jane Austen.”

Nadine – Belfast


“I have been working at The British School for two years. I have been teaching both English and Theatre to young learners for many years. Originally from Belfast, I studied at Queens University Belfast and have a passion for all things theatrical!”.

Nancy – U.S.A.


“Hello! I’ve lived in Italy for a few years now and although I was born and raised in New York, I love ‘la dolce vita’. Teaching English has given me the opportunity to meet many new and interesting people-we learn from each other! In my free time, I enjoy baking and reading novels. Who wouldn’t love curling up to a good book.”

Carla – Perth


“I live quite close to the school and love spending my free time with my husband, son, daughter and our dog, Ebony.”

Raffaella – San Antonio, Texas


“My heart is split in two: half is in Livorno where my parents live and the other half is in San Antonio, Texas where my sister and beloved niece live. I love animals and nature and enjoy long walks in the countryside with my baby-dog Toby.”

Stephan – Emerald Isle


“I am from the western edge of Europe, namely the Emerald Isle. I love a good “get-together” with friends and family, ideally in a cosy pub with a pinto or two. In my spare time, I practice Martial Arts. Teaching is something I truly enjoy, as there are always new things to discover.”

Robert - Kwazulu


“I love nature and I love exploring it. I also have a passion for English, both the language itself and teaching it.”

Sabrina- Trento


Ciao a tutti, sono Sabrina e le mie grandi passioni sono viaggiare e il mondo dell’arte! “Una lingua diversa è una diversa visione della vita” (Federico Fellini)

Tilly - North of England


Hi, I’m originally from the North of England and although I’ve spent some time studying in Italy over the last few years, this is the first time I’ve been able to really explore Tuscany and so far, I love it! In my free time I enjoy learning languages, eating Sicilian food and reading good books.

The English language is nobody’s special property. It is the property of the imagination: it is the property of the language itself. -Derek Walcott-

Language exerts hidden power, like the moon on the tides. -Rita Mae Brown-

“If you never try, you’ll never know.” – Coldplay

​Sarah - London


“Travelling broadens your mind”. That’s my motto. I was born in South Kensington, a vibrant district of London. I really enjoy discovering new cultures and learning foreign languages. No wonder I graduated in Modern Languages, spent my Erasmus year in France and I now live in this charming corner of Tuscany!

Don’t let schooling interfere with your education. -Mark Twain-

Cristina - Pisa

Simona - Scotland


Hello everyone, I have been an English teacher for almost twenty years and I think teaching is the best job in the world! I love it when my beginner students start speaking and want to know more about British culture and ask me about English food. Food, restaurants and cooking are my favourite topics and I love trying out new recipes my students give me! I look forward to seeing you in class!

Giulia - Pisa


Siciliana nel cuore, vivo a Pisa ormai da 10 anni e una volta entrata alla British School è stato amore a prima vista (provare per credere!). In ufficio non ci annoiamo di certo, ma ogni tanto riesco anche a fare un viaggetto verso casa e, perché no, a portare un po’ di cannoli.

Elena - Pisa


Salve a tutti! Qui alla British School sono una persona che “conta” molto..!


Socio amministratore e consulente

Avevo 20 anni quando ho deciso di perfezionare il mio inglese e ho pensato subito alla British School come la scuola ideale.Da quel lontano 1992 non ne sono più uscita! La British School è per me il posto dove sono anche un po’ cresciuta, dove ho avuto modo di incontrare persone meravigliose. Oltre a far parte dell’azienda come partner insieme a John e Charles sono anche freelance e mi occupo di consulenza, comunicazione e PR.

Although Shakespeare is credited with coining a large number of words we now use in English, the language predates him by hundreds of years. In fact, researchers have found that some words in English have remained completely unchanged for thousands of years!

“I’ve been teaching for years and I am a recent addition to the school here in Pontedera, which I’m very happy about. I have a lovely wife and two fantastic children, who are an immense joy. I’m a keen cyclist and I really like riding through the Tuscan countryside, when I have the chance!”
