Located in the heart of the city, EC Cape Town is just a few streets away from all the action of famous Long Street. The school is warm and welcoming with fantastic facilities and stunning Table Mountain provides the view from many of the classrooms. EC Cape Town is both an IELTS Testing and a Cambridge Exam Centre.

We have a centre capacity of 265 students and 22 spacious classrooms. The second floor is where students can get together for some pool or football. The Listening Lab, library and lounge are also frequented on a daily basis by students whether for studying or just to relax. EC offers fantastic opportunities to go on excursions and book activities from hiking, safaris to shark cage diving. We also offer many free social and academic activities on weekends and during the week after lessons. All these free activities have a teacher in charge.
