Collectively the Shafston Teacher’s Staff Room has well over half a million hours of English Teaching experience and approximately 120 Education qualifications! We employ the most experienced and highest-qualified education staff available, that’s why we have such great success with our students moving up through the English Levels, passing Cambridge Exams and achieving their IELTS scores. With over 20 Examiners on our staff across Cambridge, IELTS, TOEIC and TOEFL, our Team has the knowledge and experience to help Shafston students achieve their goals, not only through test results but also general fluency & understanding of the language... How? Shafston Teachers are required to use their training and experience to assess the level and the dynamics of their class and then design lessons that will be most effective for that particular group of students. As a result, the materials used in each myFocus lesson do not follow a common text book, they are a collection of individually-prepared lessons, written, designed and delivered by Shafston teachers for Shafston classes.

LEARNING MATERIALS All Shafston students are given copies of the latest learning materials from world class publishers including the Cambridge ‘Headway‘ Series and more!
