Location and Facilities
The London Borough of Ealing is one of the nicest parts of West London. There are large numbers of shops, restaurants, cafés and gyms, all within walking distance of the College. There is a large park (Walpole Park) adjoining the College with lakes and fountains and its own art gallery. The park provides an ideal venue for students to meet and enjoy a coffee and sandwich, relax on the lawns around the lake or have a game of football. Ealing is much quieter and not as congested as many of the more central boroughs of London, and it is often described as London’s ‘leafiest suburb’.
At the centre of Ealing, almost opposite the College, is the dramatic large Victorian Town Hall which was built in 1886. This is an imposing building of typical Victorian architecture and was opened by the then Prince of Wales – Edward, who later became King Edward VII on the death of his mother Queen Victoria in 1901.
Ealing is a very safe place to live, study and work, and is situated just 10 km West of the centre of London. It is served by excellent public transport connections to Central London and to Heathrow Airport from Ealing Broadway mainline and tube station.
At Ealing Independent College we offer specialist courses through subject specific A-Level routes, but also through our English as a Foreign Language (EFL) programme for international students.
